Yangon - Inle Lake Transfer

Posted by blazej on 19/12/2009 at 05:15

Hi, I am looking for a way to get from Yangon to Inle Lake (or at least Heho). I think that preffered connection would be by train. But I couldn't find any info on connections between Yangon-Heho, or Thazi-Heho. Or maybe I should look for a bus?

Best regards,
Blazej

A flight from Yangon to Heho (a small town and airstrip) is easy enough and takes little over an hour. Take a taxi from the airport to Inle.

A train will take you to Thazi from where you can try and find onward transport to the Inle area - there's no such thing as a 'connection' in Myanmar. Trains are paid for in $$$ and your money goes to the govt.

A bus from Yangon to Shwenyaung (the highway junction for Inle) takes about 20 hours.

A good agency for flights, etc is www.mrmyanmartravel.com .
