Over the years, the Death Railway that once linked Myanmar to Thailand has become one of the most renowned in Asia. From Yangon, the capitol, there is a daily "fast train" to Mandalay. Though it is only 650 km away, the railway system in the countryside is very outdated and the trip lasts about 15h.
One of the advantages of the bus over the other is that it is much more comfortable to use. From Yangon to Yangon by rail, click here to search for properties near Yangon Central Station on Booking.com. From Mandalay by rail, click here to check out Mandalay properties on Booking.com.
