Take a bus - NOT! Bus, Rangoon / Yangon Review

There are a range of bus services around Yangon - but, there is a major need for you to either have the phsical space needs of a sardine, or exceptionally good holding on skills if you end up on the back!

The buses were generally as old as the hills, and obviously a major people moving mode of transport in this city. Bicycles and motorbikes are not permitted in Yangon, so mass people moving is the only option, if you don't own your own car.

In addition to the bus option, there is a train, which we did not sample.

Taxi Taxi, Rangoon / Yangon Review

The taxi fares in Yangon are relatively fixed - and there is little room or need for negotiating fares.

They are, one and all, relics of at least 30 years of age, but we found this mode of transport very easy to get around with. The drivers were generally courteous, and had enough English for directions and even small talk. Never mind that the windows often don't work - and airconditioning is a rarity.
