Bagon to pyin oolwin travel

Is it possible to travel via bus from bagon to pyin oolwin without having to stop in mandaly? Or would a car/driver be the best way?

I don't think so. Will have to go to Mandalay and then change bus stations but check if there are any Bagan to lashio buses.

in 1 word- no , in mandalay there are many traffic jams, so you will have to stop several times. joke aside, why not stay a few days in mandalay. it offers much more than pyin.. bagan - mandalay bus 5 hours, stay at garden or nylon hotel, 23 us, ( tv ,big bathroom,ac,fridge, sometimes window) visit inwa and ubein bridge sunset, next morning shared taxi or bus to pyin, maybe 10 us dollars, 2 hours. hotels can book everything.

Ok, we need to come back to mandaly after visiting pyin oo lwin so we can catch overnight train from Mandalay to Yangon. Don't really want to double up on staying in mandaly. If we were to catch a bus from bagon to mandaly then a share taxi from Mandalay to pyin oolwin how do u go about getting a share taxi.... Not sure how a share works? We r a party of 2

Thanks In Advanced :)

Take direct OK Mini Bus to Pyin Oo Lwin that leaves 7:00 AM from Bagan to Pyin Oo Lwin & it arrives at there about 1:00 PM. Then , You have time to explore Kandawgyi National Gardens before you leave to Mandalay by share taxi.
