I'm hoping to get some feedback from the Fodors community on the following itinerary that a Burma-based agent put together for me and a friend. I'm most specifically interested in whether or not the hotels listed are good and if the guide prices are average or inflated (and if you think we could arrange guides for cheaper on-site).
