Yangon Chaung Tha ExpressChaung Tha Express Yangon
Arrival from Yangon to Chaung Tha Beach in Myanmar by coach March 2013
We have two busses a day from Yangon to Chaung Tha Beach. From Hlaing Thar Yar bus terminal the first one departs at 06:00 a.m.; about 40 min cab drive eastwards of Yangon town. Alternatively, you can buy your ticket in one of the many stores in Aung San Stadium opposite Yangon inner cities railway stations.
Aung San Stadium fares are higher, about 10,000 kyats, but then you're sure you have a place on the coach. There' s a second coach leaving at 21:30; it departs from Aung San Stadium via the railway terminal. It is 9,000 kyats and runs all day and you will be arriving at Chaung Tha around 04:00 am.
However, if you don't care about the flight times, this could be a good choice, as the coach departs directly from the city and saves you the fare for a cab to Hlaing Thar Yar railway stop. First part of the journey takes you to Pathein and from there it is only 45 kilometres to the shore, but the last part leads through undulating country and has many turn.
Chaung Tha Central Station is situated in the south of the shore, the coach goes into the northern part of the shore and passes almost all resorts, you can ask the coach to stop when you see your resorts. It is much quicker but also more costly to arrange a personal cab to Chaung Tha Airport.
In Yangon, some Yangon based companies can arrange for you to be transported privately. Travel from Chaung Tha Beach to other destinations:
