Bus from Yangon to Thazi?

I'm planning to catch a train from Yangon to Thazi, then from Thazi to Shwenyaung (for Inle Lake).

In case I can't get the train or for some reason it's not running:

1. are there buses from Yangon to Thazi?

2. where in Yangon do I get the bus?

3. What are the depature times?

4. How long does the ride take and how much is the fare?

Many thanks in advance!

Thanks, superthi. Very helpful and much appreciated. For the bus, do I have to go to the Aung Mingalar Highway Station to buy the tickets in advance, or can I get a ticket if I turn up ah hour or 2 before the departure?

For the train, where do I buy the ticket - at the train station in Yangon?

Thanks again!

Hi Zentraveller8,

When you arrive Yangon, you can find so many government local agents in downtown area. Don't try from broker agents on the roads, especially black guys. Also don't change money on the road from brokers. You can change every banks and government official money changers.

You can buy bus ticket in advance from government official local agents. You don't need to go Aung Mingalar Highway Station. Also train tickets from agents.

For Bus you will buy one day in advance.

For Train you will buy three days in advance.

If you want to know
