Aung Mingalar to Pyin Oo Lwin destination reviews
train #3 Sleeper, Myanmar Railways, Jun 24, 2019
Very bouncy. If you are a person who finds sleep difficult you won't get much on this trip.

This is a good way to get to see some of Myanmar countryside and was one of the main reasons I took the train. The carriages and tracks are old and are in need of upgrading. If you are a light sleeper be warned it is a bumpy and noisy journey, but I was expecting this and I managed to get a reasonable nights sleep. I would consider doing this again once they have upgraded the trains

We used JJ Express VIP. It was great reclined chairs, water, and food provided, entertainment system in the back of the chair. Could not have asked for more. We could actually sleep for most of the journey.

Do this trip only if your fascination with the passing scenery and tide of humanity exceeds your tolerance of noise, discomfort and heat. Mine does luckily so I thoroughly enjoyed this unforgettable experience.

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.

Trip was fine but train was dirty, old and crowded. Very little English spoken. No coach numbers on outside of train. Food was ok.

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).

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!!

Ride is exactly what you'd expect - long and bumpy. Nevertheless, it's an unforgettable experience and something worth trying.

The ride is not comfy and the train not clean. But its an experience ????

Was a long day on the train but a wonderful experience. Tickets were easy to purchase. Thankyou

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.

Couldn’t sleep because locals shouting all night selling their food. Already they stop at a time. Not all night.

While it was a true adventure, the rest rooms could do with some work.
bus Express, JJ Express, Jan 6, 2019
A very comfortable bus. The driver/s and their assistants were all very helpful. My only complaint would be that we weren’t advised there was no toilet on the bus. So I had to ask the diver to stop for a quick loo break on the side of the road for both myself and my son. Traveller tip ~ don’t drink beer before getting on the bus!

It was a nice experience, could not sleep that much, but that's ok. Beautiful countryside, super friendly stuff. Would do it again and can recommend it to everyone. Service by 12goasia was on the point, office easy to find. Thanks!

Train on time, sleeper OK, but noisy, dinner/food was very good. Toilet if you better avoid or use in the beginning of the trip. I used at the end and there was no water to wash hands.

Office in Yangon very hard to find, the Fantastic Condominium entrance is behind an outside restaurant so you need to take s step of the sidewalk into the garden to see the sign. Train was ok, toilet surprisingly clean in the beginning, better to go when stopped at stations due to movement as it is a squat toilet. I didn't sleep much because of the movement but enjoyed the ride anyway. Compared to Thai trains it was bumpier and dirtier.
