Myanmar Transportation

Getting to Myanmar

By Flight

There are very few international flights to Myanmar. Bangkok, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur are the best connections from around the world to get into Myanmar. Your tour begins in China, and you can catch a weekly flight from Kunming to Yangon, whose international airport is the main entry of the country, while a Thursday flight from Chiang Mai to Mandalay is an exception. It's recommended to travel via Bangkok to string up a seamless Indochina tour just as this tour suggests: 31-Day Panoramic Southeast Asia.

By Land

There are three Thai and Myanmar border crossings for visitors to reach Myanmar: Mai Sai, Mai Sot, and Ranong. It's possible to get a visa-free entry, but extra paperwork and an entry fee of around 10 dollars are needed.

Getting Around Myanmar

By Flight

Since the road in Myanmar is in poor condition, flying is the most comfortable choice for travelers. When booking domestic air travel, be patient with the time it needs to take and confirm your flight 24 hours ahead. Indochina Odyssey Tours will be able to help you with the distraught booking procedure, which can be done by simply contacting us.

By Train

It's always not suggested to take a train to travel in Myanmar because of the frequent delays, slow speed, poor service, and terrible sanitary conditions of the toilets. Oftentimes, foreign visitors are even overcharged

By Car

A hired private van is your best transportation when you want to tour independently. Consider using the professional driving team at Indochina Odyssey Tours, which hires only licensed drivers who are all expected to be well-dressed and non-smoking. Your vehicle in each destination is air conditioned, insured, clean, and regularly maintained.

By Pickup Truck

It's the Myanmar-style tuk-tuk that is usually converted into a canvas with benches on the rear. Since taxis could be expensive to hail, the inexpensive fare of pickup attracts mainly the locals and monks for short distance commute. For those who go off the beaten track, pickup is a nice choice to experience the real lifestyle of Myanmar people.

Visiting Myanmar is just a few clicks away by contacting us for a custom Indochina tour.
