Transportation Guide using for Myanmar Tours

SEA Wanders offers a wide variety of transportation for our customers, from car transportation to flight airway, from boat and ferry to train transfer. With our sense of selection, our customers will not only have the most comfortable feeling but also the best condition to enjoy your Myanmar (Burma) travel

For regular road transfer

We use the private car and private driver in anytime you travel by roadway. We will select different types of transfer to suit a range of group eg saloon for 2 customers, commuter (4 - 5 seats) for 3 customers, Toyota Hi-ace (9 seats) for 4 - 5 guests, Minivan (14 – 19 seats) for 7 – 10 guests, Mini coaches (22 seats) for a group of 10 – 15 guests and buses for group of over 20.
Our selected allocation ensures not only the comfort for your travel but enough space for the guide and your luggage. Road conditions in Myanmar is still under standard condition, but you will mostly travel on the paved road. That is the reason why we make our best efforts to make your Myanmar travel at ease and relax.
Even though the road condition is not good enough but the road width is rather considerable. Even in some trekking areas (for example: Loikaw and Kalaw), the largest type of car we provide is the 45 seat coaches so the large group can still enjoy trekking on the route.

Driver Skills picked by SEA WANDER Tours

Our professional drivers are all having their driver license and know-how attitude for travel industry serving. We all have short-training with the Car Company so that all drivers will show their friendly smile but formal service to all of the guests. One of the very good points is they know their way in – out of the city, without the help of GPS.
As a country once governed by the UK, English is the second language after Burmese. Most of our drivers can speak English. However, their local dialect is somehow quite strong. Rather different from some EU countries, drivers can give guiding services but the drivers in Myanmar and most of South East Asia countries cannot. We always manage a tour guide to support you not only in understanding matter but more enjoy the information at the visiting sites.
Burmese law regulates that the drivers must drive on the right hand-side while most of the cars have steering wheel to the right, too. That makes Myanmar traffic very interesting. (We found a very interesting post about this here)

For domestic flights and airlines

Myanmar has several airline carriers, including: Air Bagan, Air Mandalay, Air KBZ, Yangon Airways, Asian Wings, Mandalay Yadanapon, and Golden Myanmar. SEA WANDER uses Air Bagan as our priority for all domestic airline bookings (see airlines list here). The company run by a private owner and the planes are the newest so far. (Even Myanmar still use widely ATR and Fokker planes at the time of November 2014). The service is good and you will have a light meal if the flight is longer than 1 hour. One of the special points about Myanmar is that in case one airline has to cancel their flights, they will work with another carrier in order to allocate you with another similar flight time.
Up to now, most of the airlines apply e-ticket system already. Sometimes, you are still issued paper tickets then keep them very carefully (seriously!!!) Refer more about Myanmar domestic flights guide here!

Boat and Ferry Service

For budget travelers or adventurous ones, we will strongly recommend traveling by boat and ferry where needed. The most popular route is from MandalayBagan and vice versa. There are a few companies, both government and private, offering ferry transfer service. After trying and really experiencing services, we decide to use Malikha River Cruise and Shwe Keinnery for their good service status. These two companies are run by the private organization, local owner.

Overnight River Cruises
River cruises in Myanmar are available in Irrawaddy and Chindwin rivers. Operating a cruise on river cost lots of money and only big companies can afford. This results in the price for a Myanmar river cruise trips rather expensive. Our top choice is Road To Mandalay cruise (which organized by Belmond Group, their base is in Singapore) for short cruise trips normally from 4 – 6 days. For longer itinerary, we pick Pandaw and Paukan for their long-standing reputation.

For Train Travel

We only offer train travel for real adventurous customers as this type of service requires a perfectly good health to prevent dizzy and faint while the train is moving. Our expert has experienced it and posted a guide here. Myanmar Government is the sole organization controlling the railway so the price is affordable for all Burmese. However, the rail bumping is a significant problem. You cannot expect to have sound sleep or read anything while onboard. The overnight train is no air condition, only the fan to harmonize the air and the door is locked by a hook that can loose easily when the coach bumps. Despite this fact, SEA WANDER tours still recommends short train such as Circle train in Yangon for an exotic experience. For those ones desperately want this adventure, we do organize bearable berth cabins for our customers. There are not many soft berth cabins and each cabin will be prepared with 4 berths.

The official website is www.evisa.moip.gov.mm. Online payment by credit/debit cards is accepted.
following, you should book international flights early in order to get your favorite flight and splendid prices. You can choose any airline but the thing you should pay attention is transit time. Some just take few hours. Some be able to bring up to a day. In this situation, you should manage a hotel close to the airport for resting. This is just a small point in your trip but fails to do so, your burma trip becomes hard right from the begin.

Step 4: go to Light and Neat

Pack things for up to two weeks get to is not easy if you want to keep it neat and light. The general advice is just to bring really primary things, otherwise, you could find your trip heavy all the times and increase the risk of losing your own items. Take a landscape of our suggestions below:
  • Several weeks prior your trip, make a list of what you will need to pack.
  • make sure your own documents (passports, visas, driver’s license) are in order.
  • We offer that you make photocopies of passports, visas, individual ID and any other important visit documents and pack them separately from the originals. If you lose the originals while traveling, you'll inclue copies for easier reporting and replacement.
  • You be able to consider bringing a small supply of over the counter medications for headaches and/or anti-diarrhea pills. Pack a list of medications including dosage and generic names.
  • We suggest that you pack a portable alarm clock.
  • Avoid placing valuables like cameras in your checked luggage.



We found an very interesting and detailed post on packing your lugguage guide by an adventure expert here. The list is really useful for any traveler.


Step 5: Well-prepared for Culture Crash

myanmar is an Asian country not open to the world until just a few recent years. You should prepare for the difference in numerous aspects of your home country. For example: the price of the hotel is particularly as high as in the Western hotels but the conditions and standards be able to be rather far from those hotel standards (more on myanmar accommodation); you may meet Burmese men with black teeth because of chewing betel tradition or wearing long skirts - called "longis"; you can fly on free seat domestic flights and stop at the midway for transferring and collecting more passengers (more details here) etc... There are numerous other things. But if you get on well with these features, you will be awarded back to warm, honest, friendly burmese people and a featured culture that was hardly seen in other parts while traveling in Asia.

The Second Largest Ringing Bell - Mingun

Mingun bell is stored at Pahtodawgyi pagoda in Mingun, a town in Sagaing Region, located 11 km up the Ayeyarwady River on the west bank from Mandalay, burma. With a short drive out of Mandalay you may reach to the bell and spent some hours to admire the biggest bell of the world till 2000.

The Mingun temple is a monumental uncompleted stupa began by King Bodawpaya in 1790. It was not completed, due to an astrologer claiming that, once the temple was finished, the king would die. The completed stupa would possess been the largest in the world at 150 metres (490 ft). Visiting Pahtodawgyi pagoda you could see huge cracks which were affected by the earthquake of 23 March 1839
King Bodawpaya also had a gigantic bell cast to go with his huge stupa, the Mingun Bell weighing 90 tons, and was the largest ringing bell in the world till 2000. That is the must seen place when you consider spending some day in Mandalay, burma. The weight of the bell in Burmese measurement, is 55,555 viss or peiktha (1 viss = 1.63 kg), handed down as a mnemonic "Min Hpyu Hman Hman Pyaw", with the consonants representing the number 5 in Burmese astronomy and numerology.
The bell was said to inclue been cast on the opposite side of the river and was transported by using two boats, which after crossing the river, proceeded up two specially built canals. The canals were then dammed and the bell was lifted by raising the water level by the addition of earth into the blocked canal. In this way the bell was originally suspended.
The Mingun Bell was knocked off its supports as a result of a grand earthquake on 1839. It was resuspended by the Irrawaddy Flotilla Company in March 1896 using screw jacks and levers using funds from public subscription. The party to celebrate was attended by numerous and an hourly boat was required to carry visitors from closeby Mandalay.
