Buses serving most destinations around Myanmar depart from Aung Mingalar Bus Terminal (sometimes known as Highway Bus Station); a taxi from downtown Yangon costs K8000 and takes one hour to an hour and half, depending on traffic. A taxi to Yangon International Airport takes approximately 30 minutes and costs K3000. There are ATM facilities at the main bus arrivals point.
Buses to Chaung Tha beach, Ngwe Saung beach, Pathein, and other destinations in the Irrawaddy Delta region depart from Hlaing Thar Yar Bus Terminal (also know as Dagon Ayar or Highway bus terminal), across the Bayintnaung Bridge (K8000 taxi from downtown, one hour to an hour and half journey time). Minibuses to Bago depart from Saw Bwar Gyi Gone bus station, near the airport (there are buses every day throughout the day to Bago, tickets cost K2000).
There is no English Language signage at Yangon’s bus terminals, and the two main terminals are very large – it is advisable to show your ticket to your taxi driver, so you are taken to the correct place when you get there.
For details of bus journeys to and from different places around the country, go to destinations. Bus tickets that cannot be bought online here can be bought at the bus terminals; or from bus company offices at Aung San Stadium (just north of downtown, by Yangon Central Railway Station).
