For other destinations in Burma, we generally wouldn’t recommend getting a hire car, because the major tourist sites tend to be very close to the city centres, and other places to visit can easily be seen by taking a bus tour.

Why? Why not? Ratings Comments

We would suggest that Yangon is the other way round – the tourist sites in the city centre aren’t as impressive as they are in places like Mandalay or Bagan, whereas Yangon is surrounded by a superb range of national parks.

That’s why it might be worth considering getting a hire car here, but it’s by no means essential.
