Wow! I wish I had the chance to go to Asia. For the best advice, look on the foreign office website, as they give relevant and up to date advice.
Also, if the person you are travelling with has experience, you are in good hands and they are unlikely to take you somewhere where they would be placing you in danger
Have a nice trip!

1. Stay in local run guesthouses and use local run transport as much as possible. This stops your tourist dollar getting to the corrupt government.
2. Take plenty of crisp, clean, dollar bills as there are no ATM's out there.
3. You will need to fly into Yangon as you cannot cross the borders like you would if visiting Cambodia/Thailand/Laos etc...
