Tours and Tickets by Yangon Circular Train
Overview
Trade a touristy itinerary for a day-long immersion in local history and culture, from Yangon’s only synagogue to the commuter train that links local neighborhoods. Exploring with a personal guide means one-on-one time to learn about life in Yangon as you visit the Thiri Mingalar Market, Bogyoke Aung San Museum, U Thant House, and Nagar Glass Factory; included lunch and snacks are a great chance to sample local flavors.

Might have been charming many years ago but not anymore. it is in the process of being modernize and it is just a train ride now.

Went for a trishaw ride on a three-wheeled bicycle as a part of our city tour. They took us to a train station where we caught the Loop or CircularTrain that makes a big loop around the city. Interesting to watch the people riding the train, the vendors selling items and the sites you pass by on thetrain. Got off at the main train station and caught our van.

A great way to see Yangon and it's population in their daily lives. Us tourist are just part of the decors, they don't take interest in us( which is great) but sale to the locals, making the experience even more authentic . I would highly recommend those 3 hours in the train

This is a MUST SEE when in Yangon. It affords a good view of Yangon, & the amount and diversity of items sold on-board is staggering ! The cost for a complete circle trip is less than 20 cents

We had a few days in Yangon in February 2020 and decided one day that the circular train was going to be the days activity. We walked to the station after hearing the reports that it was only partially operating from a few different sources. When we got there we were advised that the full circuit of the train is only open on weekends otherwise it just runs a partial loop either way. Train staff was very helpful various food vendors available near and in the station before you leave. Tickets are very cheap. there are some scamming vendors on the platform trying to sell you water and such for four times what it’s worth so beware of well-dressed young women who appear very helpful. The train ride was slow there was food available on the train from various vendors coming and going. A lot of local cultural outfits were seen and appreciated as well as the view from the windows. The seats are hard and was the hardest part of that day but getting up and moving around is fun too and even hanging out the doors and taking pictures was not a concern to anybody. After arriving at the station you walk through intowards the tracks, go left and up the stairs and over on to the far platform where you will find the ticket booth for the circular train.
