Excellent journey, comfortable & arrived 2 hrs early
Some confusion with disembarkation - initially stopped at taxi area 2 miles before bus station to encourage customers to get off early

Overall good experience. Train was late, instead 9:30 arriving at 15:00. Was super hot at the day time.

They came to pick me up to my hotel for free. (You need to call them for pick up, though).
Very comfortable seat, with thick blanket. They offerred nice hot coffee before departure, and nice cold towel and toothbrush, etc. for 30-minute break. Everyone needs to get off the bus for the 30-minutes break for security reasons (as the driver locks the door).

An incredible experience. Facilities were adequate but expected.
火车 #62 卧铺, Myanmar Railways (Myanmar Railways), 2020年1月15日
We had nice seats and the staff was very kind. Only the food and drinks onboard were a bit more expensive then if you’d buy it outside. But overal good experience!

The driver was driving very fast. Way too fast.

Personally I'd rate our experience 5 stars because it worked out for us, but the train left nearly 7 hours late and was slower than expected. We left at 10:30pm(meant to be 4pm) and arrived in Yangon at 6pm the next day (meant to be 9:30am). We didn't have any connections to make though, and the ride through the vast farming land and villages was actually quite a relaxing way to spend the day. The 2 of us were the only ones in the sleeper berth carriage which has 2 long thin beds and 8 more regular seats which flatten out into very short "beds", surprisingly easy to sleep even with the loud noise and rocking of the train. No food in the carriage as its separate from the rest of the train, but people in villages will come up to the window with reasonably priced fruits and food. If you've got the time and no flights to make I'd recommend the train, otherwise avoid it.

The experience was great. We knew the train was slower than the bus and the conditions were a bit more rudimentary. We got a 4 bed cabin with toilet. Beds were ok. The train is noisy and in the night it gets cold (no glass for the windows). Bring your own food or expect to pay quite a lot for the fried rice and vegetables that the train offers. Once we got in the train we were asked for what we'd like for dinner and breakfast. We thought the meals were included as they didn't mentioned the price and it was the first thing we had to do once in the train. Our surprise came the day after when we had to pay 34.500mmk for x4 fried rice, x4 vegetables, x2 coffees and a water. If we had known the meals weren't included we wouldn't have ordered so much food.

Seamless and safe journey back from Bagan to Yangon. Complimentary transfer bus pickup directly from hotel to bus terminal, and bus to Yangon city area too. Good stopovers/toilet break and in-bus snack & water.

More uncomfortly ,unclean, nasty toilet than expected ,from a 1. Class sleeper

Good airline, they offered us a light meal even being a short flight. I just don't give 5* because the flight arrived delayed and also the back seats didn't move.
公共汽车 VIP舱, JJ Express (JJ Express), 2019年10月30日
Not too bad, seats are comfy and spacious. My screen is not working!
Would be better if transport was provided after arriving at the bus station (which is really far from the city) as these taxi drivers around once we alighted were all surrounding and trying to scam us with ridiculous price just to get to the city.
公共汽车 VIP 31, Mandalar Minn Express (Mandalar Minn Express), 2019年10月4日
Got picked up at hotel by bus company staff to terminal. Comfy seats, hot coffee before departure..snacks and extra drinks were distributed. Stopped for a meal and continue journey. Over all pleasant ride from 9pm to 6am.

Very good attendant and driver! ????

The BUS is def one of the most comfortable I've been and the staff is also very friendly and helpful during the trip. However, you must be aware that at least half of the trip is made in bumpy roads and you have to be open minded in order to not be afraid. There's about 500km done in a Highway (from 00 to 5am aprox) and you can organize yourself to have a rest / sleep in this specific time slot.
One thing I must point out and really disliked, is the drop off situation. We're asked by the JJ staff where we wanted to exit - there were two stops, bus station and downtown. We replied that we wanted to exit in the downtown next to Sude Pagoda because our hotel was there.
Entering Yangon, you have to switch to a smaller BUS that is supposed to take you to one of the exits you chose: bus station or downtown.
Well, this BUS only made one stop that was the BUS station and made everyone leave. Downtown stop was not a stop and as soon as you exit the BUS you are approached by taxi drivers that want to take you. This seems like a scheme to make everyone catch a taxi.
My advise is that everyone uses Grab as soon they arrive at this station and avoid using those taxis waiting. At least you pay for a fair price and avoid dealing with this unpleasant situation at 7 in the morning.

I bought an express ticket from Bagan to Aung Mingular but instead this bus makes multiple stops along the way to pickup random people by the roadside. I think this wasted time and we were not informed about it. The music is turned on super loud and it was only lowered after we complained. On a 9 hour bus ride, you tend to want to get some sleep but this was impossible due to the loud music. The bus conductor also did not tell us how long a stop would be, so we had to constantly check so that we can manage time and not get left behind. I know its an economy ticket but the cleanliness on the bus really does need to be improved.

very good. With free fetching service. Nice bus. Relaxing

Not headphones, there was no electricity connection.
火车 #62 卧铺, Myanmar Railways (Myanmar Railways), 2019年6月23日
Overall, It was a good experience .Tickets were delivered to the Hotel in Yangon per our agreement during booking process. This service was not granted on the return from Bagan to Yangon.
If I had to make any recommendation, it would be to remodel the sleeping coach. It was old and the restroom was absolutely disgusting.

The trip was enjoyable but the AC leaked a lot, all our bags left the seat compartment were wet.

The bus was alright and almost on time...not so many foreigners so you get to taste local experience...staff friendly and even they did not speak english they tried their best to explain...if you asked them that you needed break for physiological needs they stopped...i think if you dont expect western standart and that is probably why we travel to such contries then its ok...only thing i did not like was that we stopped almost at the end of journey at some village just for some local shopping such as fruits etc.

It was ours best travel by bus ever. Very spacious, excellent seats, enterteiment system with good movies, we were feeling like in the best airlines, like Qatar Airways. Your personel is absolutly polite. And pickup from hotel, absolutly excellent journey. And at least we were in Yangon before time. So absolutly first class. Thank You.

19 hour train ride sounds daunting and horrible but it was actually really great. I’m from the US and never did anything like this. I surprisingly went to sleep easily and didn’t have any dizziness after waking up from my 8 hour sleep. Simple to understand, had great food (but somewhat pricey food for myanmar, about 7,000 kyat a plate). Would definitely recommend this route for the low price of $25 USD since it’s basically a plane ticket and hotel wrapped into one!
火车 #62 卧铺, Myanmar Railways (Myanmar Railways), 2019年1月26日
Excellent service - my tickets were delivered to my respective hotels in Mandalay and Bagan 1 day prior to departure, with an email notification to ask for them at the reception - so, even being an inexperienced traveller you feel you are taken good care of.
火车 #62 卧铺, Myanmar Railways (Myanmar Railways), 2019年1月19日
Tickets were delivered to the Hotel as bespoken during booking process and confirmation email was sent as well so the Support Service was 5star.
The Sleeper train though wasnt really what we expected as it was nothing like the pictures they have online. The 4 sleeper cabin only had two beds (booked 3) and the other 2 beds were the seats which you could pull together to sleep. Allthough it was a private cabin, clean and with a private bathroom. Ride was quite bumpy but an experience which you should do ig you have the 18hours and have a look at the breathtaking landscapes. The food they supplied (You could pre order your Breakfast and Dinner) was really expensive, be careful.

Comfortable bus. Good pick up arrangements at Bagan. Drop off at Yangon could have been better as the ride is long from Aung Mingalar to downtown and standing with luggage is tough.
公共汽车 VIP舱, JJ Express (JJ Express), 2019年1月5日
Surprised how this wasn’t the worst travel night of my life. Arrived early and was able to get sleep. I would make the pick up van more efficient, one loop in town only, if people aren’t there and ready, too bad. Also, i would explain the drop off a little more clearly. There are taxis on the side of the road that can take you to town.

The trip was great and super confortable. We used JJ Express on our way to and from Bagan. We noticed on our way back that their new buses are even more confortable than their older models and a better entertainment system. The snacks were tasty. The staff were always very kind and everything was very orderly. I would definitely consider traveling wit JJ Express in the future.
公共汽车 VIP舱, JJ Express (JJ Express), 2018年12月30日
Seats were still wrapped in plastic, guess because it’s a new bus.
Head rest was really uncomfortable. Luckily it was removable.
Overall the ride was good.

Pick up service was ok aswell as JJ Express service, but the Stewardess said that we choudl take a taxi to the Airport from the first stop at 5.30, when the arraiving time was told 7.00. We end up waiting at the airport depature/arrival hall for several hours.
公共汽车 VIP舱, JJ Express (JJ Express), 2018年11月21日
they dropped us off in the middle of nowhere at 5:30 in the morning with no further information. the bus attendant said that we could take a taxi from that point to downtown but in fact, they have free shuttle bus and didnt let us know.

EXPENSIVE! Book a cheaper but just as good bus service via your hotel. Or if you want to go with JJ Express, book directly with them at their website. 12go is an agent and it charges two to three times more. 12go is also not responsive and uncontactable in times of crisis and emergencies.

First 2 hours you can hear loud Birman rap, air-co goes from 10 to 26. I must admit they are very resourcefull when it comes to overbooked buses. They put plastic chairs in the middle. For my standards was ok. Picked me up from the hotel on its way.

火车 #62 卧铺, Myanmar Railways (Myanmar Railways), 2018年9月27日
Communication was perfect, and ticket was delivered in guest house I stayed.
A very long trip of 18 hours, arrived 1 hour later than scheduled, but a fantastic experience to see burmese way of life.
As for all overnight trains in Asian countries, going to toilets at the begining of trip should be better.
Shared cabin with 4 local people (only one stayed overnight), everyone were very kind and gave me some local delicious food bought in intermediate station.
Windows (no window) are fully open (store can be close if we want), it is like sleeping under the stars.
A must !
