    Is it basically a "put a ring on my finger first," situation, or...?
    got a couple of friends living/teaching in Burma in a few places, girls are available,its just not in ur face

    I have traveled from the far north (Khamti, Myitkyina) to the far south ( Kwathoung)
    In Nov did a 10day motorcycle trip thru the Chin State. In march went to Mrauk-U.
    Inle lake is the only place i did not like, the lake is truly beautiful, but Nyaungshwe is the ONLY place in Burma that reminds me of Khao san road
    and its quite commercialized.
    The ONLY time saw no tourists was when i went down the Chindwin river an didn't see another white face for 10 days
    Bagan, at sunset at the "places to be" is a zoo

    I live on noodles, fried rice,try to find a shan or Chinese restaurant
    Where ever u are its quite easy to travel, but as stated hours suck....boats departed at at 4 am ,trains 6-7am,( and slow but prefer them to bus travel) bus's late at night, its only flights that seem to arrive, depart at civilized hours.

    People are great, but out in the boonies few, if any speak English, unless u find some old men that fought with the brits

    Incredible Cuisine- I'm at home with food poisoning, so I'll try to be objective about it. Some of it is really rather nice: Shan Noodles, Tomato salad and more than just a few of the curries are pretty decent. The vegetables have been the biggest let down for me- drowned in oil. However, to counter this there is some truly fantastic Indian veggie food to be had. The Chinese food on offer is disappointingly average. I've also eaten some Thai food that was some the best I have eaten.The amount of oil is also a big turn off for me

    Hotels- always found somewhere comfy to rest for $30-$50. I haven't done backpacker digs here and don't intend to. I don't share bathrooms, I need aircon and I want a double bed. Fussy,eh?

    Traveling: Not as easy as Thailand- the buses leave at odd hours and the trains are bouncy-really! That said, I have found the VIP buses to be far superior to their Thai counterpart. The trains, to be fair, do have a certain faded glory kinda atmosphere about them that I like.

    The People: Just lovely- welcoming, friendly and keen to show you their country and help you out. The highlight of life so far in Myanmar has been the people.

    Stuff to see and do: You better like pagodas! For me the highlight of my holidays in Myanmar has been the hiking opportunities in Shan State. Actually, Shan State in general seems to be nicer than Mandalay. The food would be the most striking example. I'd recommend coming over before the countryside gets too developed.

    Not been to the coast yet but it is on the list- it's certainly not cheaper than Thailand. Some of the resorts at Ngapali will set you back over $100++
    good info, very posiive. I feel the same
