Travelling by bus

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).

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.

In large cities such as Yangon, Mandalay and Naypyidaw, the long-distance bus stations are located far from the center of town, so you will need to buy your ticket online here or in advance from a booking office or hotel in the center of town.

Tickets can be bought at bus stations, but it is recommended to book early for popular routes (such as Yangon to Bagan, Mandalay or Inle Lake), particularly during the high season from October to May. Things can get particularly busy during the Thingyan (Burmese New Year) water festival in April.
