Transport Mawlamyine to Dawei by bus - Mawlamyine Forum
I am fighting to find coach itineraries, timetables and frequencies of trips from Mawlamyine to Dawei on-line. Does anyone have up-to-date information about timetables, itineraries, and timetables to Dawei? I would like to stay a few nights in Hpa-an and then drive on to Dawei. It was figuring that I could either boot or coach from mpa on to mawlamyine in the morning (March 23) and a subsequent coach forward to Dawei on the same date (any updates on boat information/times etc from mpa on would also be very much appreciated. on.
What many you would say are the railway to you and the coach to Dawei. Alternatively, take a van....van between Dawei & Ye is just over 3 hrs, or all the way from Mawlamyine to Dawei, with a half hr midday break in Ye, is only 6.5 hrs....hardly deserving to stop in Ye, I would be spending the leisure of Dawei and the beach.
Sometimes the procession lasts eight hour, I ran into someone in Ye who had taken it. It took me a coach that only needed a little more than 3 hour incl. midday rest. When does the platoon depart from Mawlamyine?
Getting to Dawei
Please use the quick links below to go to the required section about transportation in and around Dawei. KBZ also demanded $116 for Yangon, with a $65 deal up to $110 based on timing and date. At the beginning of 2016 Mawlamyine International Airports was shut down, so the only way to get there is by public transportation.
Dawei's airfield has the old tavoy-sign TVY and is a few kilometers outside the city on the north-east. At the end of the line for now, Dawei has frequent trains departing northbound to Ye, Thanbyuzayat, Mawlamyine, Bago and on to Yangon. Dorei and Sgaing.
Although rail travel is often an appealing option to long, narrow buses, you will have probably already learned a little about Burma's railroad. It' s noteworthy that even according to Myanmar Railways, Dawei after Ye is formally the slower move in the whole land and some say the state.
The longer distance to Mawlamyine is therefore the second most slow, and you will also switch from the folded out old vehicles in Ye, as far as possible, to the folded out old vehicles with a V. I.P. car (economy class) for the second distance to Mawlamyine and point further towards the south.
Because of the shortage of busses heading south, this may be one way to get to Dawei, but it is probably best to avoid it. The price for Mawlamyine is 3.500k yat or 6.500'VIP' year. As you can guess, the former is the fabric of folk with ratty chairs, travellers who sleep on the car floors, salesmen in all directions, hens and so on.
There is a once-daily service from Sagaing at 05:40 and the semi-damaged cabin serving as Dawei Central at 06:10 arrives in Ye at 14:38 and Mawlamyine at 20:25. Our estimates are 14hrs and 15minutes for the 370km drive. Affirmed masochist can drive on to Yangon, where the theoretical estimated pick-up hour is 06:30 the next mornings.
For those who want to see Burma's railways - and they can be great entertainment - we suggest short journeys such as Yangon Circle or the two-hour Yangon-Bago tour. There is only one street between Mawlamyine and Kawthaung, connecting Myeik, Dawei and Ye with busses and mini busses that depart from all these cities and Yangon as the final stop and depart on the way, or Yangon as the start.
We are not able to figure them out for some reasons, they fall off but do not start on the way. Traveling south-north in southern Burma is simple and uncomplicated, as each city has a pile of exits to Yangon and you can simply bail out wherever you want.
But in the opposite sense, once you're outside Yangon, it's another thing. Only a few busses go to Myeik from Dawei, for example. For example, all these busses from Yangon via Dawei to Myeik will not collect people in Dawei, even if they get off there.
If you are on the motorway in front of the small Ye, for example, you can sit and see Dawei take off to Yangon or Yangon to Dawei Busse the whole days, but without a crazy fortune nobody will come and get you. You' ll have to go back to Ye City and find either one of the many Yangon bus services that stop at all points in the north or the only Dawei everyday bus from Ye.
Coming from Dawei this means that we could only find one overnight coach from Mawlamyine to Dawei - Dawei to Myeik is a similar one. From Dawei to the Thai frontier at Htee Klee is 22,000-25,000k yat with a 12-seater miniibus. The busses take four to five hour and are picked up at the hotel.
The cost of a van to Myeik is 25,000 kyats and it will take about seven-hour. An abundance of busses - 12-seater and large - drive northbound to Yangon and will depart at Ye or Mawlamyine. We used a firm that calculated 9,000 kyats for Ye and 12,000 kyats for Mawlamyine in a climate van.
First part of the trip will take about four hour, second part about 3 hour and 30min. incl. bus and tram stop. Since the beginning of 2016, there have been no longer any buses between Kawthaung, Myeik and Dawei.
