98.8% of 4,489 travelers were presumably happy with Myanmar Railways as they left good or no review

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

★★☆☆☆
Very noisy and uncomfortable train journey, but that was expected based on other reviews, and apparently the line and trains are in process of being upgraded so once complete would hopefully be a lot better. Some great views of countryside and villages in the morning. Food available regularly, recommend sleeper carriage for extra space.

I expected aircon but there was no aircon. The ride was very loud so I didn't sleep much. The food was good (fried rice no meat). There was a little misunderstanding because I thought they asked me if egg was oke but apparently I ordered an extra scrambled egg (which turned out to be an omelet).

The food was way too expensive.. They really make a lot of money, always ask the price before.. Other then that it's a long ride and you probably gonna be late but it's fun, you kind of have to try at least once.

1. The online price is much difference to the local office. 2. The train is not to good which shake too much. You can’t sleep during your trip. 3. I prefer to use bus next time rather than taking this train. 4. The train is very old school; dirty and some insects. Conclusion, It’s good to explore something new, but for the next time i will take a night bus. It

More uncomfortable than I thought it would be. Sixteen hours unable to sleep very much due to motion and noise of train. Do not recommend to anyone. Much better to fly, Not very safe! There were five members of the police on board the train. — to protect the passengers from loosing their belonging and possible physical attack. This must have happened on previous train journeys, being reason for their being there.

Obsolete, loud train that bounces and rocks and rolls for just under 16 hours. You take this train for the experience and I'd wanted to do it for a long time. It's a trip you won't forget!!

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.

I give 5 stars to 12go because their communication and service was perfect. However, the railway system in Myanmar needs some work. The bed was comfortable in the sleeper cabin but the cabin was cold even with the windows shut. There was a fan on the ceiling if it got too hot though, which was nice. No mosquitoes in my cabin. The worst part was the shaking of the train, could barely sleep. BUT! I asked the man at the ticket counter in Bagan a few questions. I think he noticed I was a female solo traveler and changed my cabin so I would be alone, as opposed to with other people, probably men. I really appreciated that. And the crew working on the train were very nice as well.

★★☆☆☆
Ride from Mandalay to Bagan was very uncomfortable, our seat cushion had an issue where it could not stay out. I keep having to readjust it every 1 - 2 hours or so. We even switch the cushion that was slightly better but don’t expect too much with the “upper class” ticket. Train was dirty and dusty. We had to wipe down the arm rest since that was so sticky and our wet nap turned brown, no joke. It was much worse with the loud kids in our train laughing and talking loudly all night. Sadly there are no quiet hours even though our train was 2100 - 0500 arrival. On the way back to Mandalay from Bagan we booked a private driver, trust me it will be your better choice if it’s within your budget

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!

15.5 hours, upperclass, Yangon Mandalay, day train. The Seats are very comfortabele. The train it self is an old Chinese train, partly cleaned. Toilet was ok but Asian type. Lots of food offered the whole trip from walkers through. Charming. Also beer. Beware for the cooked food ... can be contaminated. Track is often bad which makes the train wobble a lot but long parts are ok and the train makes good speed. The views are good and that was my main reason to take the day train.

★★★☆☆
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.

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.

A unique experience & must do, take plenty of warm clothes and/or a blanket though coz it gets very cold over night & don’t expectalot of sleep as it’s very noisy & bumpy. Another tip, beware of the guys at Yango Stn in fluro tops wanting to take your bags, as it can prove very costly!

The train ride from Yangon to Bagan would definitely be one of the highlights of our trip! The view along the way was just insanely amazing: we got to see the messier suburbs of Yangon and all the rural landscapes along the plains. It truly is a glimpse of what life is in Myanmar outside the “touristy destinations”. The train was quite bumpy and uncomfortable (especially after midnight) but we still got a decent 6 hours of sleep. A friendly guy came and collected our meal orders at the start of the ride, and by dinner/breakfast the food was delivered right to the window. This is definitely a magical experience, and although it might not be for everyone, I think it is one of the most memorable train rides I have ever taken.

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.

As a family of 4, with our own compartment and western style toilet (!) we had a great journey. We locked both doors and were uninterrupted for the entire trip. We had plenty of water and snacks as there is not much chance to get food/drinks en route - once in your compartment, there is no possible way to the rest of the train. We took blankets bought from the market in Yangon and were glad we did. Chugging through the countryside was a wonderful bird's eye view of rural life in Myanmar: pigs, poultry, oxen and ploughs, happy locals waving to the train. Lovely fun. Not much suspension and quite a rollicking journey but THE best way to travel. We picked up the 12 AsiaGo tickets at the named address in Yangon where they were very helpful.
