Myanmar Travel Guide

Boat Travel

There are two methods of boat travel in Myanmar—luxury riverboat cruises such as Orient Express, and regular ferries. The latter is further divided into two categories—slow, and what is called express but is still fairly slow. Ferries run Yangon to Mandalay and back, with stops in Bagan in Pyay. A ticket on the Mandalay–Bagan express ferry will cost you $35 (the Shwe Keinnery, daily) or $43 (the Malikha runs only certain dates; the schedule is announced a month in advance).
