The plane was comfortable enough and the pilot and crew were wonderful. Snacks could be tastier but that was not important. I think the company makes it easy to book and the journey was easy and the plane arrived with only a few minutes delay. Well done!

Being in a sleeper didn’t have access to restaurant car, which made Food very expensive - paid 55k for 3 people for dinner and breakfast

Seats were comfortable. BUT it was really cold. Blanket provided isn't enough. Needless air con on. We stopped at 1am and everyone was made to wake up and get off the bus for 30minutes. No toilet on bus, which is a surprise for VIP price.

The ride was nearly perfect. On time, great service, snack & water provided, good driver & comfy chairs that reclined well. The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because the aircon which made it a freezing cold ride and that there wasn’t a bathroom on board as advertised. Other than that great trip!

Seamless booking and collection of bus tickets. Comfy and safe journey throughout. However, bus terminal at Yangon was far from city, recommend to grab and buffer more time as traffic can be quite bad.

train #61 Sleeper, Myanmar Railways, Nov 26, 2019
We are seasoned travellers in our very early 60’s and love to experience all forms of transport in the countries we visit. My main concern after booking the tickets was that they could not be confirmed until a few days before travel which could have caused a problem for the rest of our trip. However this is not the fault of 12goasia and their communication via email on questions I asked could not be faulted. Picking the ticket up was an interesting experience as although we had a full address, buildings were not easily identifiable. Of course we could have paid $10 to get tickets delivered to our office but their emails about ticket pick up were very detailed concerning office hours etc. The first class train was definitely not to same standard as those we have used in Thailand or Vietnam. I was glad I had booked all 4 beds in our carriage so we could relax and spread out. The trip took 19 hours in the end from Yangon to Bagan. Very bumpy journey but I must have slept more than I realised. Food we bought on the train was actually very tasty with dinner and breakfast delivered to us, which was just as well as we could not move from our carriage! Not for the faint hearted but a great way to see the countryside and relatively cheap dinner, bed and breakfast with transport included!

The bus was very narrow and a lot of passenger. Next to me was a family (daddy, mom and kid), late night the kid cried and made I unable to sleep. However, Staff of bus operators really nice and kind.

train #61 Sleeper, Myanmar Railways, Nov 12, 2019
Really rough ride. Took about 20 hours. Nice to be able to lie flat (unlike on airplane), but still tired and sticky upon arrival. Compartment was spacious enough for 3 people, and seats/beds and toilet functional. No air conditioning, but open windows provided nice breeze and good view of countryside and people and activities in villages and fields. Compartment completely isolated from rest of train. No food or water available except for few hawkers at occasional stations( very brief stops)- glad we brought our own water, peanuts and crackers. Interesting cultural experience, but wouldn’t choose to do again.

Previous comments regarding this trip are factual. The train trip is a long (19 hours in our case), grubby and jolting journey but we have no regrets. It was truly memorable and provided a reality check regarding train travel from days gone by plus an opportunity to see rural living. Make sure you take plenty of water and other provisions even though some items can be purchased along the way. Useful to have a longyi/blanket and insecticide as carriage is fully airconditioned (open windows!) Another suggestion is don’t wear white. Collection of tickets from Pegu has already been accurately described.
