Went with 5 friends and we chose without a.c. carriages. It had fans but the ones above our seats weren't working! You can see outskirts of yangon, many locals, markets, tons of rubbish and some greenery too. Times and prices are attached in the photos....More

200 kyats ( about 0.12 US$) for 3 hrs circular trip, you can see the local life. Train runs at about 20-30 km/hr and stops very frequently about every 1 mile. We were guided to platform #7, and buy the tickets there. The ticket agent...More

My favourite thing to do. 200 kyts for a three hour trip around real life yangon. Chaotic, noisy and utterly fantastic

For only 200 kyat this is the steal of the century. Riding for 2,5 hours seeing life around the railroad track in Yangon gives a good insight into the city beyond the city centre. The train is relatively comfy, goes quite slow and stops often,...More

Brilliant - watch people hop on and off selling their wears. Old train, very noisy and ‘rocky’ like the old uk trains in the 80’s! Wouldn’t probably do the whole 3 hours, 30 mins was good enough for me!

In the morning as it’s not so hot. We did it around 9AM once it got a few stops away from Yangon there was only a handful of people on it! Have a great time in Yangon.
