Good to know
Kalaw sits in the center of Myanmar, and is surrounded by hills. This is a great place to stop at on your way to Inle Lake. From Kalaw, you can join in on many trekking tours around the surrounding nature reserves. Within some of the hills sit caves with sparkling Buddhist temples inside of them. In general, Kalaw is mostly untouched by tourism and the locals welcome travellers warmly. In Kalaw live descendants of Burmese and Indian railway workers who built for British rule. In turn, there is a vibrantly diverse gastronomy in Shalaw. Support the locals by discovering new food and groceries at the local market.

Your buses are too cold. I was freezing the three times I rode with you. Not good‼️‼️‼️
Night bus to Kalaw
Pick up bus sent to hotel to meet travel bus. Very prompt and efficient. The only thing was that we were unaware that the arrival time in Kalaw was 3am not 6am as we expected. But our hotel was very accommodating. No problems in all.
Good travel
The bus was clean and on time. They pick-us up directly from our hotel in Bagan. The seats was big and confortable. We arrive very early compare to the indicate time.
