Mandalay to Thazi for train connection -

Can anyone advise if it is possible to hire a car and driver - or taxi, for the trip from Mandalay to Thazi - and possible price to do so - thank you

It would have to be around midnight..

We wish to take the train from Thazi to Shwenyuang (then onto Lake Inle)

We know there is a train from Mandalay but it does not connect with Thazi departure - means wasting one precious day in Thazi.

Do not want to fly Mand - Heho.

Any advice much appreciated - thanks.

110 miles, cost about 70,000 Kyats for a saloon. A van will be more expensive.

Very easy to hire. Check @ your hotel.

Can't you take the 17:00 train from Mandalay to Thazi, arriving maybe 21:50, then getting a guesthouse for the night? Cheaper and more sleep than a midnight drive, which given Burmese roads might not even be totally safe.
