Boat trip Mandalay to Bagan

Jump to last reply

I am currently planning on taking the slowwww ferry from Mandalay to Bagan - the one the locals take (that takes about 14- 16 hours). Would like to hear from anyone else who has taken this boat. At the back of my mind is taking the Shwekeinnery - the faster tourist boat. From reports that I have read, the slow boat is alot more interesting with lots of photo ops but just not too sure if I can hang out 15 hours in a plastic chair. Thanks

Joan
