Bus VIP, JJ Express, Feb 22, 2020
Too cold and too fast (2h30min be for scheduled arriving!) for a bustrip!

Bus VIP, JJ Express, Jan 24, 2020
Bumpy ride but seats are comfy. Served a hot meal at first stop. Arrived an hour ahead of schedule but lots of taxis at terminal in Bagan throughout the night so no problem getting to hotel.

Pleasant journey. I have a good night sleep

Bus VIP, Bagan Min Tha, Dec 17, 2019
Bus seem to arrive too early in the morning at 3 am instead of the approximate 5.30am schedule. We were stuck at the bus station with taxi cahoots that maintain their steep prices. All these is really giving Myanmar tourist industry a bad image. Arriving too early too we were not able to check in early without paying extra cost.

Bus VIP, Bagan Min Tha, Jun 7, 2019
For the price I was paying, It was reasonably acceptable as I sat in the row with 1 chair and I was at the most front. The dissappointing thing is no bottled water was given, bus staff not able to communicate clearly with us on the time of the main bus breaks, especially at that time they were more foreign tourist.

Bus VIP, Bagan Min Tha, May 2, 2019
Is called VIP just because it has 3 seats in a row instead of 4. Is not bad but not like others VIP's companies. It was punctual
BL
Bus VIP, Bagan Min Tha, Apr 25, 2019
Leg rest & lever broken on seat. Arrived early at 3am, better to leave later & arrived 6-7am.
