are there any buses from Kyaukme to Inle Lake and Inle Lake to Hpa-an and ideally some night ones? Could you recommend something to me?
Dear Paul W,
Of course, there is a bus named Shwe Loon Pyan (1600-0700) from Hsibaw to Inle Lake VIA Kyaukme.
There is no directly bus to Hpa An from Inle Lake. First, you can take Taunggyi to Mawlamyine (Shwemandalar Bus__1000-0730). There, you can take not only a boat but also a car or a motor bike to Hpa An. The view from Mawlamyine to Hpa An along Than Lwin River is amazing. But the current of Than Lwin River is fast and rough.
thank you, it really helps me
Yes, there is a overnight bus from Nyaung Shwe to Hpa-An , The route take about 18 hours , the bus leave Nyaung Shwe at 16:00 and arrive to Hpa-An at 10:00 am . Can get the ticket in Nyaung Shwe( some Travel-service Offices) The ticket price is about 25000 Ks (Myanmar Kyat)
For the day bus, have to transit from Yangon.
Nous avions demandé à notre GH où nous pouvions trouver des tickets, mais ils nous ont répondu qu'il n'y avat pas de bus direct entre HPA AN et KALAW.
Mais nous l'avons finalement trouvé ! C'est un petit bureau en centre-ville !
HPA AN > KALAW = 23 000 kyats par personne
Départ : 19h30
Arrivée : 6h30 du matin
KALAW n'est pas le terminus.
Bus très bien, air conditionné (prendre un pull), polaire, bouteille d'eau, etc.
At first we asked to our B&B where we can buy tickets, but they answered us that there is no direct bus from HPA AN to KALAW.
BUT we finally found it ! It's a little office in downtown !
HPA AN to KALAW = 23 000 kyats per person.
Departure : 7:30PM
Arrival : 6:30 AM
KALAW is not the final stop.
Bus are fine ! AC (take a pull), with blancket, bottle of water, etc.
The direct bus from Nyaung Shwe to Hpa-An is 14 hours (pick-up from your hotel at 4pm for a 4:30pm departure) and can be booked through Thu Thu travel agent in central Nyaung Shwe. The total price, including hotel pickup, is 25,000 kyats.
