train #12 Upper Class, Myanmar Railways, Nov 22, 2019
Did train 12 0500 Mandalay - Yangon in Upper class ie comfort seat. Ticket service from 12Go was excellent. Seat comfortable for the whole 18.5 hour journey. No restaurant car but plenty of on train vendors. I just wish Myanmar Railways would make life a bit easier by having accurate information on train times in English available at stations & on the net. Staff at Mandalay were very helpful. All the information in English that was at Yangon has now disappeared.

This was the easiest bus ride with reclining seats, a bottle of water, your own TV to watch movies, a snack and an attendant on board. I can’t believe how fast the time went by for a 9+ hour ride. JJ Express was the best!

Jj express is kind enough to deliver us to Yangon’s downtown zone freely. That’s the good point

Comfortable ride, with washroom/meal stops every 2-3 hours. Arrived on time, and made sure that the non-Burmese-speaking passengers know about the free bus transfer downtown. Good value and good service.

train #4 Sleeper, Myanmar Railways, Feb 18, 2019
Very noisy. Cabin is very dusty and very old. No air-conditioning and the ceiling fan is not efficient. No restaurant. And other passengers sitting/sleeping on the corridors and talking. No proper sink to wash the face or brush the teeth the following morning.

train #6 Upper Class, Myanmar Railways, Jan 27, 2019
Good experience with train. Nice scenery and got a nice sunset view. A bit bumpy and noisy though. Very cold at night (this is winter) as the windows cannot be fully closed. The issue is with buying the ticket through website because it was confirmed only a day before the travel date. If couldn't get the ticket, I travel plan would have been in a mess with a flight to catch in Yangon. I understand that they need to get it personally at the ticketing office. But, i also understand that tickets can be bought 3 days in advance. Why not buy 3 days in advance and confirm it in stead of last minute. At least, we have some time to make adjustment if needed. Customer service is very prompt to my emails. Thanks for that.
