In this post I will write up my bus/train times, and from here to where, and where to there?? I have included a map so you can check out where I’m at!!
I will keep it as one post so it will be updated regularly along with my travels.
Yangon – Pathein = 4 hours
Pathein – Gwa= 2 hours,
4 hour wait for next bus, on the side of the road, kinda cool watching the locals going about life
Gwa – Thandwe = 7 hours
Thandwe – Ngapali beach = 15 mins max (tuk tuk)
Thandwe – Mrauk U = 17 hours, 5.30 arrival (the road is fairly new and not shown on this map)
Mrauk U – Bagan = 14 hours + minibus = 45 mins + taxi 20-30 mins
Bagan – Mandalay = 5 hours
Mandalay to Hsipaw (train) = 11 hours (free pick up for Mr. Charles hostel)
Hsipaw to Shwenyaung (Inle lake) via Kalaw (night bus) = 14 hours
Inle lake to Loikaw (mini bus) = 7.5 hours
Loikaw to Yangon (bus) = 17 hours
Total travel time in Myanmar = 98.5 hours, this does not include treks, taxis, tuk tuks, bikes, or all the long waits at bus stops and stations etc.
