I love train travel and always take the option when available. I’m glad I had this experience. I was prepared in understanding the conditions. However be aware, it is the most violent train ride you’ll ever take. Similar to driving high speed over speed bumps while trying to sleep.

The trip from Bagan started with us being picked up from our hotel. After 5,5 hours we were dropped off at our stay in Mandalay. Despite the fact that the bus was overfilled we could accomodate our luggage in a better way than when we went the other direction. Also the fact that we were dropped off at our hotel was a big bonus. In Bagan we were ripped off by taxi crooks when arriving at the bus station since drop off at our hotel had been stopped by authorities(?!). We do not give five stars since the minibus is just a bit too small for so many passengers with luggage.

Can purchase by self one day before date departure at Bagan railway station. Much more cheaper comparing with online ticket. The train is old and shaking all night long, hardest to sleep well and mice is running around too. Good luck buddy!

Overall it was a great service considering that they picked us up from our hotel and even offered to drop us to our hotel in Mandalay. They also provided water and wet wipes to passengers which deserves a thumbs up. I gave 4 stars because we left Bagan not on time but that was negligible.

5 star for the driver and conductor. They fetch us right in front of our hotel and was really on time. The trip was not delayed and arrived earlier than we expected. I loved that the driver/conductor initiated to drop us off to a point/place near the mandalay intl airport and where we were able to hail a cheap ride.

We took OK Express because of the later departure time from Bagan to Mandalay (at 4pm instead of the 2pm bus by JJ Express). Turns out OK is a bit like a local bus and picks up / drops off people along the way, which is fine! Just took a little longer than I expected. Also it started raining and water was flowing in on the floor along the side of the bus.... however - the bus got us to our destination just fine and we were plenty happy with the direct pick up and drop off at our hotels.

Love the service and hospitality, pick up from hotel and send to hotel in Mandalay. For me the this minivan going to Mandalay from Bagan is good. They even stopped and gave water bottles to some animal caretakers!

I’m rating 5 the support of 12go. It took them some time to confirm the booking and I got a bit worried. But when I got to the train station and saw how manual it is to print the tickets I understood why is not promptly confirmed. As for the train, well, Myanmar Railways could definitely improve the trains. Very shaky, dirty... but well, that’s what I was expecting !

Late reply from 12go asia. Additionally, the train was terible, hot and dirty. The real price of the ticket was 4000 kyats while It was increased 4 times by 12 go asia.

We were picked up on time at our hotel in New Bagan with a pick up and got on the bus in Nyaung U. There is not much space for luggage and it was squeezed under the seats. We made 2 breaks, one short toilet break, one lunch break. Not the most comfortable bus for 5 hours ride but it was ok and you get what you pay for. Got a water bottle and were dropped off at our hotel right on time.

Despite leaving almost 30 minutes late and picking up roadside passengers all along the way, the bus arrived closed to an hour early, and made an effort to drop me off at the hotel. The ride was crowded, but good value.

Very basic bus, but fine for a daytime journey of only a few hours. The service was great though, very helpful and friendly operators and even dropped us at our hotel!

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.
