Do most people enter via Thailand, or is it possible to fly in to the capital?

    The quickest and easiest way to enter Myanmar is flying into Yangon. Of course you can cross from Thailand (by land) at a few border check-points however your access is limited to a few days (I think no more than 2 days) and distance for travel (you essentially enter a 'tourism zone' that you cannot travel outside of). Remember - while the Burmese are exceptionally welcoming and friendly, the government still doesn't want foreigners wandering aimlessly across the countryside.

    For a true taste of Myanmar (well.. as much as the Junta will currently allow) I recommend flying into the capital then jumping on an internal carrier (there are some 4 or 5 internal airlines offering services at good rates) and heading to other cities/ towns such as Mandalay and Bagan. You can always hire a taxi (complete with driver and guide) for only a few $$$ a day and they will take you pretty much anywhere you could want to go. over 9 years ago
