Myanmar: Yangon to Mandalay (video)

 

WATCH: Bus Travel from Yangon to Mandalay in Myanmar 

Our video travelogue of 27 Days in Myanmar continues with the drama of getting from one place to another with limited communication. Enjoy the RIDE!

September 30, 2012 I woke up at 6am and tried to call two bus companies to see if we could gets seats for four from Yangon to Mandalay. I was able to sleep through the night as there were no monks and alms at 4am (see other movie!)

I did not figure out if there were seats but did learn about internet in Yangon from an American man going by bus to Bagan with temperatures of 40degree C. He claimed that at Trader’s Hotel for $3usd Tiger beer, you can use the internet on the UN satellite and it is very fast. We did not have Internet at Beautyland II. And we still did not have seats. We did learn the day before about buses leaving Yangon.
This movie is from our 28 days in Myanmar (Burma) from September 28, 2012 to October 26, 2012 and our year TRIP in South East Asia, see all the videos from our trip
