We recommend to take some warm clothes for the road, because in some parts of the country mornings and evenings can be bit cold. It is also a good idea to take quality shoes for driving. The locals drive usually with flip flops but good boots feel so much safer. During the day it usually gets so warm that wearing a t-shirt is just enough. For the dustier parts we recommend to take some kind of cloth to hide your mouth and nose from the flying dry dust, some times there is a lot of it.

We have long co-operation with the best tour guides in the country and years of experience organizing adventure tours around Myanmar.
