Transport Options

Much of the one-hour drive into town from Mandalay Airport is through fields and scrubland swaying with mango trees and palmyra palms and liberally dotted with gilded pagodas. If you're arriving in Myanmar for the first time it's a great first taste.

There are free shuttle buses for some hotel guests. Otherwise, it's taxi time! There's a fixed rate of US$10/K12,000 for a private taxi, or US$5/K4000 for a shared taxi. Cheaper guesthouses will order you an airport car for about the same price as a shared taxi, but big hotels ask for a fair bit more. Taxis on the street typically want double fare, as they’ll find it hard to get a return ride.
