Bagan Magwe Pyay Travelogue - Pyay Forum

Since my hope of visiting Mrauk U was shattered at the last moment, I resolved to return to Bagan (was there in 2010) and then take the comfortable coach back to Yangon. They said they would let the coach sway around my guest house at 7:00 a.m. I bought my coach pass at the Hwy coach terminal near Shewzigon for 6500 Kie.

It took me a little over 5 hrs to get to Magwe and I was kept busy by Myanmar DVD's that played Madonna & Pat Boone covers. The natives seemed to have fun when I was singing along in English! Once in Magwe (pronounced Mah-GWAY), foreign nationals have to report to the small policestation at the coach terminal, simply give them your pass and it will take a few mins.

I was apprehended by a Trinhaw rider and I asked him to take me to a guest house I had known about, but the place was a garbage heap and they wanted $15 for a room with a bunk and nothing else. They seemed more worried about their lunches, so I went and had the chauffeur take me to the'notorious' Rolex Guest.

It was actually quite cute for a cheap place, and I was negotiating to get a room for 12,000 kyats, a large room with 2 single berths and a coldwater showers. He got on the next day's 6:45 a.m. to Pyay. 4,000k for a six-hour drive is not a poor business.

The" coaches", who called to the natives when we came over to see if they were on the way to Pyay, said it "Pyeh". Tried to find a reasonable guest house in Pyay, so many sleazy places asking $20 or so. Eventually I chose to go to the Smile Motel, where I was offered a $24 room for $22, as I stayed for 3-night.

It is a beautiful place, and I drove around this afternoons to see some of the places of interest in the old part of the country; and to my amazement, the natives say "Pee" to the people! {\a6} (7hrs, 4500 kyat). Please be aware that when you arrive in Yangon it will take you 45 min to one hr to get to the centre from this departures.

In the city I payed 5000 Kyats for a cab (the 3 natives with whom I exchanged 1000 kyats each). Someday I saw two aliens in Pyay, the other nights I saw none at all. I' m definitely going to see Pyay again!
