The Yangon circular train is a must do if you are visiting Yangon for even a day or two. It's a 3-hour slow Journey that circumnavigates the Outer Perimeter of Yangon City. It is super cheap probably about $0.50 in US dollars. And it's a...More

Local price for tourists. On platform 7, buy your ticket at the ticket office. They have a sign up displaying the departure time. A lot to see, houses and people. We got off 1.5 hrs into the trip at a huge fruit and vege market....More

Caught the circular line train from Yangon with our 3 teenagers - it was hot, dirty, smelly & colourful - we loved it. A real eye opener for 200 Kyat per person for a 3 hour circular trip. We jumped off after 45 minutes and...More

This is a must see for those who want to see, hear, taste, smell and touch real Myanmar. If you are used for luxury coach trips, you will probably not visit Myanmar at all. Once you are in Yangon, you can try this mini adventure....More

Took the three hour journey to get a real feel of what it's like to live in Yangon and outskirts. Not disappointed. A twenty cent ticket offers you a glimpse of this bustling metropolis in all its glory and unfortunately misery. Take the trip to...More
