Myanmar overland

I know there are many threads on the topic, but just trying to keep it active and stay on top of latest info. Wanting to drive across from Thailand to India at the beginning of 2015. Any advice from people currently doing it or in the future would be great. Permits, travel agency used, cost?

Hey guys

Thought I'd jump in on this one as my wife and I will be arriving in Singapore early feb and heading for the UK via Burma and Iran.

We'll be travelling in my LR Defender so no bikes I'm afraid but definitely up for splitting the costs across either or both of them. We can always take the guide with us on board too

Send me some details of when you're anticipating heading there and I can l let you know what we've found so far,

Hi Guys, I'm also looking to do Myanmar sometime early in 2015. In the Planning stages for a Melbourne to England trip starting in August. Going solo but more than happy to join forces along the way, especially for the Myanmar crossing. Anyone contacted one of the Myanmar guys for tour details? I've seen some good posts so can send links, etc if ya want.

We are leaving Australia in October. Haven't contacted an agent yet as it is difficult to workout how long we will take to reach Myanmar. I have Tins details but other posts here list cheaper options. It seems it is becoming much Cheaper!
