I spent 76,500 Kyat about PHP 2,950 (USD 63.5 ) for transportation and accommodation.
Exchange rate at the time of travel (July 2016) was
1 USD = 46.4 PHP = 1,208 LAK
Route Mode * Travel Time Amount
Guesthouse to Bus Terminal Taxi 1.5 Hours 10,000 Yangon to Bagan Minn Thar VIP Bus 9 Hours 18,500
You can actually go to the bus terminal sharing taxi with other guests from the same guesthouse. Unfortunate for me, there were no one else going so I had to shoulder all 10,000 Kyat.
2 nights in Eden Motel III 18,000
A bed is USD 8 for one night with free breakfast which consists of egg, two pieces of toasts, butter/jam, a plate of watermelon chunks, banana, coffee and cream.
Sunrise in Bagan Plains 30,000
The bus leaves Yangon at exactly 8:00 PM and arrives at the bus station in Bagan really early in the morning. Upon arrival, the bus would be swarmed by taxi drivers making various offers. I went with the one who offered to take me to Bagan Plains in time to view the sunrise then take me to my hotel for a total of 30,000 Kyat and I wouldn’t have to pay the 25,000 Kyat entrance fee to the Bagan Zone which is valid for three days. I didn’t know that I wouldn’t be allowed to visit the most prominent Burmese Temples in the area without the entry ticket. So I suggest you go with the righteous taxi drivers even if you pay more (or may even be less), your money goes to the right hands.
Myanmar food is 2,500 Kyat
