How to go from Bagan to Ngapali?

Dear fellow travellers,

great we are all so enthusiastic about Burma!

Question: in january we would like to spend the last few days of our holiday at Ngapali. Our trip is more or less fixed till Bagan. What would be the best to travel from Bagan to Ngapali?

Is it by plane via Yangon, or is over road an option?

Road is not a realistic option. Flights from Bagan or Heho, possibly via Yangon.

Last year, Air Mandalay have direct flight from Bagan to Ngapali but it is now depend on their weekly schedule. So , check with air mandalay upon your arrival. They fly depend on the demand.

For example, last week they have flight from Bagan to Ngapali but this week from Mandalay to Ngapali on 21-11-07 , another flight on today , 19-11-07 , Bagan-Mandalay-Heho-Ngapali- Yangon. Every week they change. So , you have to check upon arrival. Please note that in their schedule they mention as , Bagan as (Nyaung-U) , Ngapali as ( Thandwe).

Another possible is by car . Bagan to Pyay ( about 8 hrs drive), stop over night and then Pyi to Ngapali (about 9 hrs drive) if you have time. Usually, in January, road is already repair and not so bad but we cann't tell exactly.

Otherwise, you have to fly back to Yangon , change plane or stay over night at Yangon and fly again to Ngapali.
