Traveling to Myanmar was more expensive than I had anticipated.
While it is still a SE Asia destination, making it less expensive compared to Europe or Australia, but it wasn’t cheap like Thailand or the Philippines.
To be honest, it was the accommodations that got me, and sadly, I don’t see the prices dropping anytime soon.
If anything, prices will go up because Myanmar now has an over saturation of tourists. No longer is Myanmar an off-beaten path, but it is now more popular than ever with over crowding in Bagan, Yangon and Inle Lake becoming the common theme.
As every says, it is better to visit Myanmar now as opposed to later. Despite the flock of tourists, it will only get worse later. Go now before it becomes a swimming pool of humans all in one place!
