Getting around Myanmar doesn’t have to be difficult. Know your options ahead of time, and book in advance so you don’t have to figure anything out last-minute. There is a wide range of options — from comfortable private transportation to trishaws and trains.
Private transport is the best option for travelers who want to tailor their transportation for optimum convenience.
Anywhere provides private ground transportation with air-conditioned vehicles and friendly drivers. This is probably the easiest way to get around — professional drivers arrive at your hotel, so you don’t have to figure out directions to a pickup point.
Shuttles are a convenient option for people who want to take an overnight trip—this is a popular option for travelers between popular destinations like Yangon, Mandalay, and Bagan.
Shuttles are also more comfortable for buses, and better suited for long hauls.
In order to see as much of Myanmar as possible, opt to include a few domestic flights in your itinerary.
Drives between major destinations can be very long and arduous — not to mention roads are not always in great condition.
