Rental cars and Car hire in BURMA

Burma is one of the few countries in the world where car hire and self drive are not available or are officially forbidden. In the current, rapid development in the country, however, changes are likely to arise soon. The Real Myanmar provides a safe and trusting way to discover Burma by car safe and convenient.

The Golden Rock (Mt. Kyaiktiyo): To enjoy it you need perfect weather, good physical condition and enough time

The situation right now: Individual travel with private cars is possible as long as you not looking for  “self driving”. Either at the airports – mainly in Yangon or Mandalay – or in the city centres  locals will offer their own cars für daily rent. The prices are negotiable, but the tourist carries the (high) risk of missing insurance and has to slove problems in case of an accident themselves.

But: Most of the local tour operators offer car rental including driver. These offers are more secure, but also more expensive.

The costs vary: rates between 80 US - $ (cheap), 95 US $ (average) and 110 US- $ (higher) are on the market (including repairs, parking fees, etc..).

The daily rate depends primarily on the particular route (the daily kilometers) and possible toll amounts. Keep in mind: You also have to pay the rent if you stay in one place for the whole for sightseeing (Bagan oder Nyaung Shwe for example).

Meanwhile, the supply of cars in Burma has increased considerably. The quality of cars, mostly imported from Japan or Korea, has improved significantly. But the daily rates have risen, too. The main reason: significantly higher gasoline prices and rising utility costs and risning cots for driver accomodation.

But costs can be reduced by combining car hire and flights. Very popular: The flight from Yangon to Heho (Inle Lake) and there you rent a car, which then can be used for travel on Kalaw or Pindaya Caves towards Mandalay. Especially on this track, it is worthwhile to travel individually and independently.

Difficult: One way rentals aside the main routes (Mandalay, Yangon, Bagan) are expensive as most of the operators charge double, because the car has to return empty.

IMPORTANT: The road conditions in Burma can not be compared with Western countries. Rarely daytime speeds can be over an average of 50km / h. Travelling more than 300 kilometers a day is only possible when you start early, but even than the risk of delays is high.

The route Yangon to Mandalay follows a "highway". This distance is easy to cover in one day. This is hardly possible for the journey from Inle Lake and Bagan: Here one must reckon with about ten hours of driving time. An early start is urgently needed. Especially driving at night still pose a risk. On the way you will often find hardly eat or appropriate sanitary facilities. Flexibility is required for overland travel.

Rough times for a highflyer?

Balloons over Bagan in

The message hit like a crash landing: the world famous Balloon Rides over Bagan, Burma's most important tourist attraction next to the outstanding Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, is threatened by massive headwinds. The reason: The Department of Archaeology and National Museum under the Ministry of Culture published new rules for the rides: Business with the rides could get pretty rough!

 

Since October 2015 balloons must now fly between the altitudes of 90 metres (300 feet) and 600m (2000ft), and land well away from the ancient buildings. To date, flight altitudes were permitted up to only 50 metres (150ft) and routes directly over the more than 3,000 pagodas were no  .......

Myanmar as a sporty destination - impossible? False! Since 2013 The temples of Bagan are the spectacular setting for a marathon – the track includes snakes and brutal heat. Nevertheless, without a doubt this race is one of the most spectacular running events throughout Asia

 

The question arouses hilarity: "Are snakes a danger?" - The answer arouses horror: "Yes! If necessairly, please go to the toilet before the start! During the race stay always on the track! If not possible: Kick on firmly and make noise".

  Pasta Parties on the evening before a marathon race extend more relaxed generally. But at least at this moment, at least the throng of international starters have no doubt: .......

Eating out in Burma can be a very authentic, but also a very rustic experience. Upscale restaurants (outside hotels) were decades as rare as a quiet place in the old town. Mostly, a few tables and some more chairs revolves around a mobile food stall along the roadside. Food stalls came and went.

 

Not seldom the quality of food was a limited culinary delight and sometimes not easy to enoy for tourists. Perhaps it is also because of this long very limited supply, which in many places rather wore a dull name the Burmese cuisine - and a bit of experience in Asian cuisines for the guest mostly could be helpful.

With the economic opening.....

KYAW THEIN TUN – MANAGEMENT, STRATEGY AND FINANCE

The Real Myanmar was established in 2013 by the German journalist Peter Hinze. His idea at this time: a company without political and economic effects of higher levels of politics and society.

 

To date, this is difficult to achieve in Burma, but even more so The Real Myanmar still feels connected to the people of the country in a special way.

 Peter Hinze was first time in 1994 in Burma and met Aung San Suu Kyi under house arrest in Yangon for an interview. In the meantime, the former editor and co-founder of the German news magazine FOCUS visited the country frequently.

With his Thai wife the 58 year old lives in Munich, where the couple also run an Asian Massage and Day Spa (SAI SPA Munich). Peter Hinze is an worldwide ultramarathon runner (eg he ran in 2013 at the premiere of "The Bagan Temple Marathon").
