How can a ten-hour bus ride, let alone in Myanmar, rival the train to Chiang Rai? When it is the JJ Express VIP bus to Mandalay it can. You would think that you are boarding an Emirates A380 flight when you hop on this bus. The seats are angle-flat, you have your own personal television that has new movies in English (check out that new Rambo!), and there’s even a drawing with winners being awarded neck pillows, eye shades, and extra blankets. It really is an enjoyable experience. Add in the great rest stops for some food and alcoholic fuel and JJ like the Oriental Express has you hoping that the ride goes for a little bit longer.
