    Whistle.........Taxi....Taxi....!!!
    Hehe..Don't be surprised to find these Bullock carts as Taxi in Mingun. You can take the taxi from Mingun Paya to Hsinbyume Paya. Just a short distance, you can actually walk, but if you feel like sitting on a bullock cart, then go ahead and take pictures for rememberance.

    After a heavy breakfast in Mandalay city, off we went to this jetty along irrawaddy river to take a chartered boat trip to Mingun. Its about an hour boat and 11km ride to Mingun. The weather is pleasant with cold breeze and tend to get hot later, and our boat don't have a roof. Haha..

    Boat trip to Mingun

    Mingun river bank from temple

    It is about 11 km upriver from Mandalay on the opposite bank of the Ayeyarwaddy and accessible only by river. The 45 to 60 minute boat trip to Mingun is very pleasant with plenty of life on the river to see. (see my Burma's transportation tips)

    Mingun Paya

    You can get to Mingun by boat from Mandalay in about 45 minutes. I had a taxi that I hired for the whole day so I missed that beautiful ride. I paid $32 for my Taxi for 13 hours. It was probably about $20 more than I had to pay. The small blue taxi's are smaller but alot cheaper than the way I went. I had fun and covered alot of ground that day so I'm not losing much sleep over it. You can also ride one of these shared pick-up trucks(picture) to get between towns. I'm not sure of times and actually I'm sure there isn't any posted times. In Myanmar nothing leaves until it is full!
