Travel Time & Money n Myanmar

I have some questions:

1. Are there early morning buses from Yangon to Mandalay (3AM to 5AM)? How long is the travel time?

2. How much car rental from Yangon to Mandalay? how long is the travel time and is it different from the bus?

3. Will $50 and lower be accepted for changing into Kyats? or just $100 bills?

Thanks in advance!

For your questions:

1. Bus from Yangon to Mandalay often leaves in the afternoon. It takes about 12 hours by bus.

Please note that both bus stations are located in the suburb of the cities.

2. Basically, you will take the highway, it is not different way for the bus. It costs you from 350usd for 1 way trip.

3. You can exchange even smaller note. $50 note is very good to exchange.
