About Myanmar Road Trips


Experienced, safe, courteous, friendly English-speaking driver-guide

Tour in a clean, air-conditioned, well-maintained later model Toyota 5-6 passenger sedan, lovingly cared for by Zaw Zaw, who is also an able mechanic. Zaw Zaw is courteous, safe, doesn’t drink alcohol nor use tobacco or chew betel nut. He will drive wherever you wish, including finding restaurants to suit your tastes. Even larger vehicles can be arranged on request.

Choose from Zaw Zaw’s itineraries, or design your own tour. You can travel on the new highways or the old roads, overnighting along the way. Plan to satisfy your particular interests–ecological, cultural, spiritual, or whatever!

We can arrange air-conditioned accommodations at smaller, safe and clean 2-3 star hotels with reasonable prices. Premium international hotels may charge considerably more and are easily booked on travel sites yourselves. We can make reservations for clients, but they pay directly to hotels. We do not accept fees or commissions of any kind–including hotels, restaurants and vendors. Let us plan with you! Zaw Zaw knows his country well.

For additional information or reservation, email us at: zawmyintaye@googlemail.com or call Zaw Zaw at +95 943030200.

  1. Hello Zaw Zaw – after being back in Austria we finally find time to write you

    Thank you very much for your service! The trip through Myanmar with you as guide and driver was fantastic – your service, your knowledge of the area, of the plants and the people made our travel interesting and fascinating. The way you pointed different sights to us gave us great opportunities to take photos and marvel at your beautiful sceneries. I especially love the different colors of your rice-fields. Your insights of social and political life in Myanmar helped us to understand the Myanmar people a lot better. Your save and sound driving brought us safely back to Yangon, and after seeing how some of your fellow drivers are acting w appreciated your controlled way of driving even more. Your service of finding and booking accommodation in a category where it is at the same time comfortable and clean and on the other hand at an affordable price proved to be perfect.

    We can recommend your service to anyone who likes to visit Myanmar – to travel the countryside with a private car is the perfect way to visit a country – to see a lot of different areas and attractions in a relatively short time. (Until now we have always been traveling through Asia by bus and train – which is ok but this way you see much more an are closer to the people!)

    Thank you very much again for your service and the wonderful time we could spend with you in Myanmar. – You live in a beautiful country with friendly and very nice people.

    Best regards

    Gerd and Renate Schwab/Austria

  2. Hello Zaw Zaw,

    We would like to thank you for the very nice trip we did with you. We spend 2 weeks together and you showed us the beautiful country of Myanmar. You showed us the best places and everything was really perfect.
    You have chosen very good hotels and you had the best hints for the restaurants. We enjoyed the Myanmar food too much.

    Zaw Zaw is a very nice and careful driver, who knows the country and the sightseeing places very good. He knows what could be interesting for his customers and helps to fulfil all their wishes. We were very happy that he booked the hotels, because he knows the different hotels quite good. From the pickup at the airport till our last day we enjoyed the service of Zaw Zaw too much. Every day Zaw Zaw showed us new interesting places. We saw many padogas, monasteries, beautiful countrysides, but also many markets or places where the local produce their goods.

    It was better than our expectations, because with a local driver you get more insight of the country and it´s wonderful people.

    We were very happy with you and we can recommend your service any time.

    Thank you very much!

    We wish you and your family good luck!

    Best regards,
    Sabrina & Tobias from Germany

  3. A review from clients Dirk and Lieve from Belgium-March 1, 2015
    “We are world travelers traveling with our own car. We looked for a solution to get across Myanmar from Thailand to India. Travelers with their own car need to have an official guide. Our jeep had no room to take two officials so we had to look for an affordable solution. Friends of ours did already three trips through Myanmar with Zaw Zaw. Since Zaw Zaw’s car is big enough to transport 6 people we invited Belgian friends to join us and to share costs. Three people flew in from Europe while we entered Myanmar at the Thailand border in Mae Sot. All paperwork was well prepared by ZZ and the border crossings went without any problem. We traveled almost 4 weeks in Myanmar. ZZ booked the hotels in the price range we asked for. The choice of the restaurants was good. We had in unforgettable journey in the golden country, everything was organized to the perfection. November 2014. Dirk & Lieve Kontich – Belgium.”

  4. Dear Zaw Zaw,
    thank you for ten unforgettable days we spent as a family with you in Mandalay, Bagan and Inle-Lake. You helped us discover your lovely country and the Myanmar people, your culture and history. You knew the best restaurants with Myanmar food always considering our European digestion, helped us choose our hotels and kept an eye on our sightseeing programme and the day’s planning, when we forgot time whilst admiring even more Buddhas, Pagodas and taking lovely sunset-fotos. Thank you so much for caring for us, my four men and myself, in your lovely country! We wish you only the very best!!

  5. I found Mr ZawZaw from travel blog review and engaged him for 8 days trip in Myanmar. Before i arrive in Myanmar, i was quite worry of my choice as during the email and text communications, he was a man of few words. However, in real person, he is a nice, responsible person and crack few jokes at times. Seeing the local ppl with tobacco chewing and spitting habbit, i am really thankful he is non of the kind. I strongly recommend him if you are visiting Myanmar.

  6. Hello. We are arriving in Yangon on the 1. Of December. We are 2 adults and 2 children age 9 and 10. We have until the 19th December to visit your country. How much would you charge to drive us around the country on the classic tourist trail?

  7. Many thanks for your service of driving us to Nay Pyi Daw at the start of December. Zaw Zaw was a professional and very safe driver on a road known for its poor road safety. We had a very good experience with a reasonable price. I would recommend Zaw Zaw to anyone who is in need of a driver in Myanmar.

  8. We would like to thank Zaw Zaw for our experience in Myanmar one month ago. We spent 8 great days with him last January touring that wonderful country called Myanmar. He drived us from Yangon to Bagan,, Mandalay, Kalew, Inle Lake, and Ngwesaung Beach. We decided to discover the country by land instead of taking a plane because we thought we would see more of the country, and we did not regret it. We are very satisfied with his job. He was always very motivated, friendly and reliable. Besides being a good driver, he knows perfectly the attractions of Myanmar (monuments, pagodas, hotels…) and can explain everything well in English. Finally he invited us to spent the last night at his own guesthouse and presented us his family.

    We strongly recommend Zaw Zaw to anyone who needs a car with driver to tour that interesting country called Myanmar.

    Dear Zaw Zaw: I wish you good luck and much work in the future! (sorry for the late comment)

  9. Dear Zaw Zaw,
    We are back in the UK. Many thanks for the wonderful time and memories. Your positive attitude and professionalism made our Myanmar experience much more than we hoped for. We are so fortunate to have found you and used your services.
    If anyone wants to speak with any prior customers please do not hesitate to have them contact me.

    Kind Regards

  10. We would like to thank Zaw Zaw for the wonderful holidays we made in Myanmar.

    We spent 8 great days with Zaw Zaw last January touring that this wonderful country. We drove from Yangon to Bagan, Mandalay, Kalew, Inle Lake, and Ngwesaung Beach. We decided to discover the country by land instead of taking a plane to see more of the country and the people, and we do not regret it. We are very satisfied with his job. He was always very motivated, friendly and reliable. Besides being a good driver, he knows perfectly the attractions of Myanmar (pagodas, monuments, landscapes, hotels…) and can explain everything well in English. We strongly recommend Zaw Zaw to anyone who needs a car to tour that interesting country called Myanmar, or a good guide to introduce the country and the people. At the end, he invited us to stay at his own Guesthouse and we could know his family. Greetings to all from Europe!

    Dear Zaw Zaw: I wish you good luck and much work in the future! (sorry for the late post)

  11. My friend Nick and I have just completed an 8-day tour of Myanmar with Zaw Zaw and we had a wonderful time. The itinerary was Yangon-Inlé Lake- Bagan-Yangon with various stops suggested by Zaw Zaw in between.

    Throughout the trip he was completely reliable and totally safe. We asked him to arrange accommodation and he found perfect places to stay.

    I can recommend Zaw Zaw to anyone thinking of taking a trip to Myanmar. You won’t be disappointed.

  12. We just got back from our first trip to Myanmar and had a wonderful time! Zaw Zaw took us around Yango, Bago, Lake Inle and Bagan. Our experience was enriched by his local knowledge and his help in recommending hotels (which were fantastic and really great value) and places to eat (we had some fantastic meals). The long journeys were very entertaining and comfortable in Zaw Zaw’s large vehicle and his driving was superbly safe on the country’s “challenging” roads. I can honestly give Zaw Zaw the highest possible rating on all fronts. We left the country on a high feeling that we had spent 10 interesting days in the company of a very dear friend.

  13. Hi Zaw Zaw

    We are a couple and travelling in Myanmar in April. We want to go from Hsipaw to Inle (Nyaung Shwe) overnight on the 8th of April and from Nyaung Shwe to NaiPyiDaw on the 12th of April. Is there any possibility? What would it cost? Best regards, Laura

  14. Wonderful trip with Zaw Zaw from Yangon to Pathein, Nwge Saung, Gwa, Ngapali Beach, Pyay and back to Yangon
    An amazing trip thanks to Zaw.Zaws careful driving and sense of humour
    we would highly recommend Zaw Zaw to anyone planning a trip by road in Myanmar
    Thank you Zaw Zaw
