  Travelling by Car / Express
        Travelling by bus is the simplest way to get around Myanmar if you are on a budget – and it is the only way to get to certain destinations (unless you are prepared to pay for a private car). Bus schedule is frequent with 5 trips at 5pm, 6pm, 7pm, 9pm and 9.30pm (all night trips with air-conditioners). The 9-hour trip is cheap and comfortable for most tourists.       Yangon Highway bus station at "Saw-Bya-Gyi-Gone" only about 4 km from the Yangon international airport. Here there are both airconditioned and non-airconditioned buses leaving for many destinations such as Bagan, Meikhtila, Mandalay, Kalaw, Heho, Taunggyi, Kyaikhtiyo, Mawlamyaing, etc. Normally almost all buses going long distance (such as to Bagan, Mandalay and Shan state) leave Yangon in the afternoon and arrive at their final destinations in the next day morning.

      In larger cities such as Yangon and Mandalay, there are local bus networks, which are popular and sometimes crowded. Understanding routes can be difficult for visitors as signs are not written in English and numbers are in Myanmar script, but with a little help from locals, buses can be a fun and cheap way to get around. Journeys rarely cost more than K300.
Getting around Myanmar by bus Please note that the map above indicates primary bus routes accessible to foreigners, not all bus routes.

Important notes on bus travel in Myanmar

  • The long-distance buses on major routes are modern, air conditioned vehicles, but some older buses in less touristy areas are in worse condition. In extreme cases, they may have no working windows, and may have people, sacks of grain, or even live animals filling the aisles!
  • On most major routes it is possible to choose between different levels of luxury, which is reflected in the price of the ticket. VIP buses (sometimes called Express buses, although they are not always faster) are very comfortable, usually having reclining seats and 2+1 seating (as opposed to the usual 2+2). For more comprehensive information on routes, go to individual destinations.
  • Many bus schedules operate over night, which allows you to make the most of your days.
  • Most longer journeys feature at least one refreshment stop. These offer you the opportunity to stretch your legs and get a drink and a bite to eat. Buses do not generally have toilets.
  • Water, and perhaps a small snack, are sometimes supplied on buses; ironically these are usually to be found on the most comfortable buses, on which you need them least. Take your own bottled water for longer journeys – just in case.
  • Air conditioned buses can get cold. It’s a good idea to have another layer to cover up with, although blankets are sometimes provided.
  • Myanmar pop and rock videos or romantic movie dramas (not the most sophisticated of styles) are often played on buses – loudly. A personal music player is highly recommended.
  • Some off-the-beaten-track routes cover very rough, dusty roads – and can become impassable in the rainy season, so journey times can vary. Although buses tend to be more reliable than trains and public boats, on less well-trodden routes it is possible your bus might need to cool off or have minor repairs.
  • If you do travel to less touristy parts of the country (particularly border areas), it is a good idea to have photocopies of your Myanmar visa and passport photo page, which may be demanded by officials.
