Mandalay Taxi Service – Honest Mandalay Taxi Rental

If you are in Mandalay and you are looking to hire a chauffeured car or taxi to bring you around, I recommend Mr. Zaw Win Maung.

Mr. Zaw Win Maung was the taxi driver Thiri Thitsar Hotel hired to fetch me from the highway bus terminal. He told me that he also does full-day taxi hire within and around Mandalay.

He can bring you to Pyin Oo Lwin City, Monywa, Amarapura, Mingun City, Sagaing, Innwa (Ava) and within Mandalay (Northern and Southern side).

My Myanmar colleague, Su, and I hired him to bring us to Amarapura (for sunset at U-Bein Bridge), Mingun City (for Mingun Pahtodawgyi,  Myatheindan Pagoda and Mingun Bell). This costs K25000 per trip, it’s cheaper if more people go together.

The next day, we hired him again to bring us to Pyin Oo Lwin where we visited 7 places in Pyin Oo Lwin. This costs K40000 per trip, it will be cheaper if shared among more people.

I like that he is very honest, the price stays the same no matter how many people go together. He doesn’t bring you to tourist traps and try to get you to buy souvenirs. He gives good recommendations (he recommended December Garden restaurant which turned out to be really good). The only down side is he is not fluent in English so communication may be a little problematic. If you do not have someone who can speak Burmese in the group, download pictures of the places you want to go and show him.
