I have to let you all know of a cheap taxi service from Bagan to Mandalay. The price was 50USD in a very nice clean car (this is the complete price not 50USD each person) . We found Nyo Nyo on the high street in Bagan his number is 09-402560779, his company is called EVER SMILE and our driver was called Aung Aung. We stopped off only once for something to eat as we left Bagan at 4pm and we arrived in Mandalay 8pm.for a safe and comfortable journey door to door I highly recommend HIM. It's a much better price than the hotel which was 135USD or the other companies which where 120-125 USD.
