Carlos Melia – Transitioning from Yangon to Bagan
My day began very early at Belmond Governors Residence, my hotel in Yangon. 5AM our bags should be at the door of our rooms to be collected. Was time to say goodbye to Yangon and move to our next destination, Bagan where we would boar our luxury boat Belmond Road to Mandalay, our home for the next 5 days, on our voyage along the Ayeyarwady River, to our final destination Mandalay. But before that could happen, lots of things were planned for our day transitioning from Yangon to Bagan.
Early morning began with coffee at my room at Belmond Governors Residence, and ready I was to head back to Yangon International Airport to take our flight to our next destination in Myanmar. The fantastic team of Belmond Myanmar, made all so seamless and effortless. As we arrived to the airport, each of us was handed its ticket, and off we were whisked to the VIP Lounge. My luggage, was being escorted and guarded by their professional team, and the next time I saw it was at my cabin, onboard the Belmond Road to Mandalay luxury river cruise, in Bagan.
Right on time, we boarded our one hour and twenty minutes flight up north, onboard a 70 seater ATR 72-500 by Asian Wings Airways. I must say I was quite impressed with their service. Comfortable seats, a basic meal and we were landing in Bagan.
