Kansai Airport to Osaka

Kansai Airport to Osaka

After our long flight, we were itching to get to our hotel to put away our luggage and get some rest. Kansai Airport to Osaka is relatively easy to reach but which kind of transport you take depends on which part of Osaka you want to go to. From Kansai International airport, you can go into the city with car, buses, taxi, ferry or train. Kansai airport is also the closest airport to Kyoto. It can easily be accessed by train. When I was researching information for our trip, I found that it depends which train companies you will use the most to get the most value. JR trains were the best option for us for what we wanted to do. We were also staying near Shin-Osaka so the fastest and most convenient for us was the JR Haruka Limited Express. It’s also great value if you go to Kyoto.

Air Asia Mandalay Free Shuttle Bus

Air Asia Mandalay Free Shuttle Bus

 

Air Asia Mandalay free shuttle bus is a free transport service to and from the airport. There is only one bus schedule a day and this coincides with the schedule of the flight. This is a really good service as the airport is quite far from the city so taxi fares are a bit expensive especially if you have no one to split it with. The only disadvantage I’ve observed is taking it from the city to the airport, it arrives really early for your flight. They don’t really open the gates until an hour before your flight so you have no option but to loiter around the airport with no internet connection and hardly any seats.

Inle Lake Travel Guide

 

Inle Lake is probably the fourth most popular destination in Myanmar after Bagan, Yangon and Mandalay. You can reach it through the town of Nyaung Shwe. This is the nearest town for the lake and where all the buses and vans stop. This is also where you will find a lot of accommodations and restaurants. The town of Nyaung Shwe is basically a good base for exploring Inle Lake. It is a freshwater lake and the second largest lake in Myanmar.

Bagan Travel Guide

Bagan Travel Guide

 

I made a graphic Bagan travel guide hoping that it might help someone who is planning or curious about travel to Bagan, Myanamar. I really enjoyed my time in Bagan and it has probably the most authentic place I’ve been to so far. It’s very raw and not crowded at the time I visited, that also means the usual conveniences are not there but that also adds charm to the place.

A Myanmar rest stop for buses and vans

A Myanmar rest stop for buses and vans

 

This Myanmar rest stop we were at was not very big. There were maybe 2 buses at most but a lot of them were local looking taxis and vans. It seems like a local stop too, not too many foreigners. It had a huge restaurant and some stalls outside selling mangoes and snacks.

OK Van Express from Mandalay to Bagan

OK Van Express from Mandalay to Bagan


When I was researching for this trip, I read about OK Express and that it was a good service. They do door to door so they pick you up from your hotel in Mandalay and drop you off at your hotel in Bagan or vice versa. If I had known this, I could have traveled at night without any worries. Anyway, it costs 9000 kiats or $9. They have maybe 3 trips a day. I took the earliest one at 8am.
