In Yangon you can make reservations through your guest house or your accommodation. Well, if not, there are operatives at the main railway yard. I' d say most busses run in the mornings, but there are some overnight busses that I wouldn't recommend. I will be in Yangon at 9:30 a.m. and I will not stay overnight in Yangon.

Well, I suppose I'd just look for an operative near the main railway yard and take the chance of taking the overnight coach if there are no afternoons. The trouble with the dinner coach is you get in around 2:00 a.m. When booking your ticket through the main railway box, you can go to the coach terminal for $1, otherwise you can get a shuttles from Sule to the coach terminal for the same fare.

Particularly the caverns Stalagmiten and Stalaktiten are unbelievably nice. Under the limestone massif a tradional wood ship takes us back to the parking lot.

Later in the afternoons we will go to the Fledermaushöhle, where every evening more than a thousand mice come out to find nourishment. We will take a trip by personal ferry to Mawlamyine (Moulmein) after having had our breakfasts. On the way we stop at U Nar Auk Monastery, constructed during British colonialism by the best artisans of that age.
