We currently live in the Washington DC area. The most convenient trip from DC to Rangoon requires one stop in either Tokyo or Seoul, with total travel time at about 22 hours at best (about 14 hours to Seoul/Tokyo, then about 6 to Rangoon, plus layover time). Less convenient itineraries might require an additional stop elsewhere (Dallas, Seattle, Bangkok, Hong Kong) and therefore require more time. - Mar 2017
