bus VIP, Bagan Min Tha, Jun 7, 2019
For the price I was paying, It was reasonably acceptable as I sat in the row with 1 chair and I was at the most front. The dissappointing thing is no bottled water was given, bus staff not able to communicate clearly with us on the time of the main bus breaks, especially at that time they were more foreign tourist.

Is called VIP just because it has 3 seats in a row instead of 4. Is not bad but not like others VIP's companies. It was punctual
