How to Pick Your Hotel by The Region
- Yangon will probably be your first stop before you get yourself familiar to the country, quiet and cozy room, great breakfast and easy access to restaurants should be what to look for in a hotel.
- Nothing specific should be noted for Mandalay hotel except for being centrally-located.
- Most hotels in Bagan don't have huge rooms, but it doesn't hurt to choose something of great value, nice view and swimming pool as your children can get bored easily by all the pagodas.
- Waterfront, spacious room, quiet surrounding, leisure facilities and nice on-site restaurant are the typical standards for hotels in Inle Lake.
