Hello,

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?

Thank you

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.

Hi Sakya,

I am also planning to leave from Hpa-An to Inle by bus, so you mean the bus you took is from Hpa-An to Kalaw and then to Inle, which took 15 hrs in total?

Thank you for all the info.

Bonjour,

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.

------------------------------

Hi,

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.
