Since Yangon is a centre with an internatonal airfield and most of you will be arriving in Yangon on your first night, a few overnight stays in Yangon will help you to get a short orientation about Myanmar.

While you can select a perfect choice, remember that all these trips will give you memorable adventures over a great vacation in Myanmar. It is 611 km from Yangon. Travelling by midnight coach can help you saving a great deal of cash (the cost of a coach pass is about 20USD/person for an air-conditioned V.I.P. coach and you can book 1 nights in a hotel).
It' a very good option if you're not ill and can stay on the coach, as it's quite loud when you travel with locals and the drivers turn on Myanmar sounds. Buses usually leave Yangon at 6pm and arrive in Bagan around 4am (the next day).
So, if you decide on an accommodation coach, make sure you reserve your Bagan accommodation in anticipation and get ready for the shuttle from the coach terminal to your accommodation. Myanmar's Indonesian rail standards are not as high as in other Asian nations such as Vietnam or Thailand, etc. It is incredibly sluggish, the car is loud and your berth in the cab is quite difficult to get to rest.
