So.... first class sleeper in Myanmar is not what you'd see elsewhere in the world. Take a jacket or extra blanket and pack snacks. The sleeper is not assessed from the rest of the train.... I'd do it again I. A heartbeat, just better prepared.

Bus kept stopping to pick people (friends up ) tooting of the horn !! Lights kept going on and off and we were sitting near the back and every time some one got on ,, all they wanted to do was talk ??? Nightmare !!

The train left on time and arrived in Bagan at 11am. The 12go arrival time of 9.30 is incorrect. We booked all 4 berths and had lots of room. Watch out for people selling food for the journey on platform - they are charming but try to charge far too much. We ordered sweet and sour chicken with fried rice from the official train steward who advised we would get it at 7pm and sure enough we arrived at a station and the food was handed to us. It was very tasty and plenty for 2 people - cost 6,000 kyat. We enjoyed the journey through the countryside and slept reasonably well. A pillow and sheet are provided. As it got cooler we switched off the fan. For security during the night we closed the windows and doors. The toilet facilities were fine - take own toilet paper. There was some water to ‘flush’ with. All in all a trip well worth doing

We elected to pick up our tickets at the office. It was very hard to find. The directions were not accurate, and when we finally find it we were sent to another office down the street. Very frustrating and unprofessional. The train ride was just as described.

A must do once trip !. Not much sleep with the rocking and noise but what a way to see the countryside. Food good, though a little expensive for what is was. Toilet was basic , it’s all you need. The county and the people , priceless !

Fun but freezing I felt like Jack on titanic at night! Get dressed. You can order a great food for the entire journey.

Bus VIP, JJ Express, Feb 6, 2020
Seats were very comfortable and very friendly staff! Snacks were good. When you are trying to sleep its not nice that they put all the big bright lights on at every stop. Our big negative point was that our backpacks in the bagage storage were completely soaked!! All of our clothes where wet!! So I recommend to all of the backpackes to put their raincover on it!

train #61 Sleeper, Myanmar Railways, Feb 3, 2020
Like the previous review, our schedule was fixed and we only got confirmation 2 days before departure. The service charges seemed high for the anxiety, minimal communication and service. The train was as expected from other reviews and l have experienced sleeper trains in India, but it took much longer and was swaying so much that l was actually concerned for my safety. Typically l enjoy the train to see the countryside but l trip is enough in Myanmar.

AC was a bit too much. Wished I had a winter parka while there :)

Bus VIP 31, Mandalar Minn Express, Jan 28, 2020
nice, big chairs (which you can adjust according to your needs), during trip we got water, fanta, some snacks, can watch movies and listen to the music. The only small minus was very weak english of the stuff but honestly speaking- not necessery part.

A bit of anxious while waiting for the confirmation as nearing to the boarding date, since no way to contact them directly.

We ordered the tickets on line on 12go.asia they replied immediately. We had them delivered to our hotel . I had a few questions which I submitted and they were very quick with a response. The tickets arrived a day ahead it was very professional

The plane was comfortable enough and the pilot and crew were wonderful. Snacks could be tastier but that was not important. I think the company makes it easy to book and the journey was easy and the plane arrived with only a few minutes delay. Well done!

Being in a sleeper didn’t have access to restaurant car, which made Food very expensive - paid 55k for 3 people for dinner and breakfast

The “vip lounge” is a total mess... but the trip was fine, no complains, except - as usual -polar cold in the bus, bring clothes

Bus Business, Elite Express, Jan 12, 2020
Seats were comfortable. BUT it was really cold. Blanket provided isn't enough. Needless air con on. We stopped at 1am and everyone was made to wake up and get off the bus for 30minutes. No toilet on bus, which is a surprise for VIP price.

Bus VIP 31, Mandalar Minn Express, Jan 9, 2020
The ride was nearly perfect. On time, great service, snack & water provided, good driver & comfy chairs that reclined well. The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because the aircon which made it a freezing cold ride and that there wasn’t a bathroom on board as advertised. Other than that great trip!

Seamless booking and collection of bus tickets. Comfy and safe journey throughout. However, bus terminal at Yangon was far from city, recommend to grab and buffer more time as traffic can be quite bad.
