Default Transport for Mandalay-Bagan in August


I'm planning a 9 or 10 day trip to Mandalay and Bagan via Yangon. I intend to go to these places as these would be the driest during August. I have some questions.

1. From Mandalay to Bagan, I hope to take a river boat. I'm partial to the slow ferry, but wouldn't like it's uncertainty and likelihood of breaking down. What are the options available in July, and which would you recommend?

2. Depending on what is my exit strategy, I will either travel from Bagan to:

a) Yangon by bus? Is this advisable during the rainy season, safety, prices, night buses?

b) Mandalay by bus?

c) Mandalay by flight? I'm trying to reduce the number of internal flights as they are quite costly.

Thanks in advance for your comments and help!

Smile Transport for Mandalay-Bagan in August


May be my comment will be late for you but I hope it will be help you to find out more. From Mandalay to Bagan by river boat during that period is not sure to operate for tourist. You should take by bus or flight. It's much better for you.

From Bagan to Yangon by bus is possible. No need to worry about safety and also night bus you can take. But it's will be arrive to Yangon so early around 4 am to Bus Terminal. If you don't want to take domestic flight from Bagan to Mandalay by bus also possible.
