From Dawei - Buses going to Mawlamyine and Yangon will usually stop in Ye, but some will charge the full price for the final destination. Buses leave Dawei at 5am, 2pm, 3pm and 5pm. Some have air conditioning and others do not. Ticket on non-air con bus at 3pm costs 7,000kyat from sellers in downtown Dawei. Ride is 5.5 hours or so.

Buses drop off on outskirts of town where motorbike taxis will bring you to the centre for 1,000 kyat per person.

  • Mawlamyine- Buses to Mawlamyine run at 6:30 am, 9:15 am, 11:45 am and 3:30pm with varying companies. The ride is 4 to 5 hours long. The 9:45 and 11:45 buses do not have air conditioning and the cost is 6,000 kyat for foreigners. Apparently the company that runs the 6:30 and 3:30 buses does not charge foreigners more than locals.
