Road

Road conditions in Myanmar can be classified as acceptable, poor, very poor and extremely poor. Even the acceptable road in Myanmar has only 2 lanes. In raining season, some roads are impossible to pass.

 

Larger towns in Myanmar offer a variety of bicycle rickshaws or trishaws, horse carts, ox carts, vintage taxis (taxi) and thai tuk-tuks or tiny four-wheeled 'blue taxi' Mazdas. There is no modern model of vehicles in Myanmar. Furthermore, service of air-conditioned car is expensive.

 

While Myanmar law requires vehicles to travel on the right-hand side of the road, there is a combination of both left-hand and right-hand drive vehicles in use throughout the country. This adds to the already hazardous driving conditions.

 

Water

There are many cruises running on the Ayeyarwaddy River and the Mekong River. Most of them are running by companies from European or Singapore companies.  

 

Airlines

If you want to travel in Myanmar by air, you need to have a travel agent or tour operator to book the air ticket for you. There is information about the blacklist of airlines prohibited from providing flight service for US citizens. As a local tour operator, our suggestion is putting all your worry down. All airlines are connected in some way. For the service and flight experience, we would recommend Air Mandalay.

 

Air Mandalay established on 6 October 1994 and started operations on 18 October 1994 with a flight from Yangon to Mandalay. It was the first domestic and regional Joint Venture Airline in Myanmar. It was established as a joint venture between Air Mandalay Holdings Singapore and Myanma Airways.
