Myanmaaaaaaaars slooooowwwww bus times………

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.
