Had an excellent experience on three trips with JJ Express. Transited from Yangon to Inle, Inle to Mandalay, Bagan to Yangon. All three trips were at night, and all three were comfortable and well run (all three were booked for a 1st class seat). All buses were on time, and shuttle buses were offered at both Bagan and Yangon.

I had the chance to take the JJ Express service between Yangon and Inle lake and it was very well organised. Departed on time from Yangon, we stopped 3 times along the path. Staff was kind, wearing uniforms and helpful. They apply metal tags on luggages not to confuse them with other passengers.
They organised very well our journey, putting people who had to go to Inle lake into another bus going there, instead of Taunggyi.
Only one suggestion:please clarify that the bus station in Yangon is quite close to the Airport and not downtown.
I suggest to book in advance JJ Express!
Thank you!

Hi Excursion55297945122, Thank you for taking time to write detail review. It is true that the bus depart from Aungmingalar bus station outside Yangon near the airport. We also have a complimentary shuttle pick up service in Yangon downtown. We hope that you have great time in Inle where people row the boat standing with their legs. It is an experience to share with your friends and families. "Je zu tin ba deh", with many thanks JJ Express family

We used them 3 times on our journey around Myanmar and all 3 times the service was very good and the bus arrived earlier than stated. The seats are comfortable, there is an English speaking person on board and you get snacks and sometimes even dinner (from Inle to Yangon). The only two issues that I had was the air con is way too cold and you only get one thin blanket to cover yourself and that one one of the journeys there was a constant beeping noise coming from the front of the bus which didn't stop at all for the entire journey. I appreciate that you maybe couldn't fix the noise but the air con situation needs to improve. No reason for the buses to be so cold, it is not possible to sleep.

Hi kazia66, We are honored to be the choice of your transportation service during your stay in Myanmar. We have known about the AC feedback. Unfortunately, local passengers are so used to the cold air con (they are also prepared and they dress warmly for the trip.) We are always in a dilemma for adjusting the temperatures. We will look into the issue once more to find the solution. Aside from this minor nuisance, we hope that you have a great time in Myanmar to share your experience with your friends and families.

The bus left Mandalay smack on 9am and cost $12 each. I loved the tv screens on each seat, that was a big surprise. Some really good films too. I watched The Shawshank Redemption and Harry Potter. I wasnt sure where the bus would drop us off but it made a detour to Nyaungshwe, dropping us off at the JJ office about 5pm. Much earlier than I was told. All in all this was a brilliant, comfortable journey and I'd recommend to anyone. Also, we booked our seats in advance on the internet from England which was very convenient, even able to book our seats.

Hi penelope_pit_stop123, We hope that the bus ride is just a small wonderful experience in your whole trip in Myanmar. We hope that you have a great time both in Mandalay and Inle to share about those experience with your friends and families in England. "Je zu tin ba deh", with many thanks JJ Express family

This was one of the best overnight trips by bus that we've ever made. The bus had only 2+1 seats in every row, so it was not crowded. The chairs were wide and could slide forward a lot. There was space to put your hand luggage, water bottle and snacks. There was wifi on the bus and blankets. The lights were out most of the time for those who wanted to sleep; there was only one stop (toilet break). Very comfy and relaxing.

We did Yangon to Mandalay. We were the only people on the curtesy bus from near central train station, which is definitely better than a taxi as it takes you straight to the correct check-in at the huge bus terminal outside Yangon. VIP coach is very comfy (road is poor so not so easy to sleep on a night bus) and stops at big clean service stations twice. At Mandalay we were taken from the main drop off point almost to our hotel. Very good service, but the journey itself is really boring !

Hi MikeFromBewdley, We apologize for the poor infrastructure the country has. We hope that your journey is not defined by your time on our bus but your stay at Mandalay where you can see the moat, palace and ... We hope those are the things you will miss and share with your friends and families. "Je zu tin ba deh", with many thanks JJ Express family

We took VIP overnight bus from Yangon to Mandalay,they provide a VIP waiting lounge before departure. On top of it they provide some snacks & water and blanket (air-cond is very cold). Overall drive feel safe & smooth. The bus stewardess is very attentive and professional.

I travelled with JJ Express for three overnight trips in Myanmar. Comfortable, great service and value for money. Always on time, snacks and meals provided on some of the routes, arrived early in my destination every time.

Good service. They checked to make sure everyone was in their seat before leaving each stop. Bus was clean. They put a tag on your luggage and give you a copy of it for security. Caught the bus from Yangon bus terminal and it took me to Mandalay bus terminal. Then another bus, which is included in the fare dropped me off near Mandalay train station. Al this for $US10 in December 2019. I used a number of bus services in Myanmar and this one was the best.

Best bus company in Myanmar. Relatively comfortable as far as busses go, good movie selection and decent complimentary snacks. Service was remarkable, we ran a bit late to the station as the bus is hard to find and they waited for us after we contacted them. Pretty difficult to sleep still and they leave the AC on full blast but otherwise a really pleasant overnight bus ride from Yangon to Inle Lake.
