Bored of sitting at home? Some suggestions to discover Myanmar on 2 wheels in the coming weeks.
*  Do a morning ride in Thanlyin off the main roads with Uncharted Horizons – easy biking level for anybody: https://www.facebook.com/uncharted.horizons.myanmar/
*  Go by e-bike around the Bagan temple zone – any hotel in Bagan can arrange it or book with a travel agency and go with a guide to explain more about the hidden less known temples as they start to re-open. Hotels like https://www.heritagebaganhotel.com/ and http://areindmarhotel.com/ are already open and have e-bikes for rent.

*  Rent an off road motorbike or a Royal Enfield do some great new trips with Discovery DMC; options include Dawei or nearby Yangon over the weekend: https://www.facebook.com/discoverydmc/

* Mountain biking around Inle Lake – also possible for families as child seat, tagalong and children bikes are also available: www.facebook.com/GrasshopperAdventuresInleLake/
As information and regulations can change quickly we suggest to book with a travel agency who can double check latest procedures and requirements. Currently you don’t need any special papers to travel around Myanmar. The hotels in Ngwe Saung and Ngapali are not open yet.
