Can someone tell me how far away is Ngwe Saung beach from Yangon city?
What would be the best transportation to get there?
Thanks for replies.
260 kms.. It takes roughly 4-5hrs driving in a car, add another couple of hours on that if you're travelling by bus. Buses to Pathein run pretty frequent, give yourself a whole day for the trip. Haven't heard too much about these flights that Air Bagan should have started by now, Yangon to Pathein, I'll have to get back to you on that one.
Ngwe Suang Beach is about 255km from Yangon, 4.5 hours by private car and around 6 hours by bus. Easier way to go is to take the flight from Yangon (daily departure, 100USD and 1-hour flight) to Pathien and take a 2-hour bus/car drive to Ngew Suang afterwards. You can check out the flight information in Air Mandalay or Air Bagan websites.
Have fun in Myanmar!
Air Mandalay doesn't fly to Pathein.
Air Bagan said that they are going to fly twice a week to Pathein. But no fixed schedule yet. There is no flight up to Dec 31. There is one on that day. It cost you about US$ 70/person.
If you are not going to spend there for a long time, you better hire a taxi for round trip. If you hire for one way they have already calculated for the back way also.
Yep, flights should have started last month, some resorts are fully booked for Xmas & New Year & some were booked out last week & some were empty, seems a little up & down at the moment . Flights to Pathein only takes 30mins & the journey from Pathein to Ngwesaung is 50kms, shouldn't take much longer than an hour.
Not forgetting that anyone catching that 30minute Yangon - Pathein flight if & when it happens will be deprived of all that spectacular rural scenery. A new train track is being built at present from the outskirts of Yangon where the buses to Pathein leave from going directly to Pathein, when that's built it'll be without doubt, one of the most scenic train journeys in country.
