  1. I am so very jealous. I definitely have it on my bucket list to tour Myanmar and especially to see all of the pagodas in Bagan via Hot Air Balloon! I didn’t even know about the Amarapura White Temple in Mandalay but I am definitely adding that to my Myanmar itinerary! This looks like a a great 6 day itinerary!

  2. I’ve been seeing pictured of Myanmar everywhere lately! The Amarapura White Temple is absolutely stunning and one of so many reasons I would love to visit there. Thank you for the handy itinerary 🙂
