Voice of Travelers to Yangon
Short vacation in Yangon
My girlfriend and I, living in kengtung decided to make short trip vacation to Yangon last fall. We took a break from work and flew to Yangon and as we had already planned, enjoyed the recreational activities in Yangon. We bought tickets to Yangon online after a referral from a friend. Purchasing the tickets online was cheaper compared to visiting the travel agents who sold their tickets more expensive compared to the online tickets. When purchasing a ticket to Yangon as an international traveler, it is advisable to purchase your ticket six weeks prior to your departure, tickets are cheaper during this period. We chose to travel by aeroplane, we didn't want to waste time travelling by road. Yangon Airways offered 4% off their ticket for any one visiting Yangon. The experience enjoying the outdoor activities, exploring the scenic and historic sites in Yangon was awesome. We came back rejuvenated and we are on course to achieve our respective goals in our places of work.
Birthday celebration in Yangon
I am Htin from Chauk. I celebrated my birthday in Yangon last week. I wanted an adventure on my birthday and started planning early last month and timed for the cheapest ticket to Yangon. I searched online for the cheapest ticket one week prior my departure to Yangon. Ticket to Yangon is cheap two weeks or more before your travel time and it is advisable to purchase your ticket weeks before traveling. On ticket comparison, cheapest ticket to Yangon was by FMI Air, they were offering a 3% off the price of any ticket bought that month. Even though, the flight was short, their flights attendants were friendly and offered great travel experience that I guess was satisfying to everyone.
