Really enjoyed this since it affords one the opportunity to see people going about their daily lives. I got to talk to the locals on the train; they were all so friendly, as was pretty much anyone I came into contact with in Myanmar.

Thanks to my excellent tour guide Moe Moe, I had a wonderfully fulfilling day exploring Mandalay and area. Moe Moe and her driver picked me up on time and reviewed the day’s itinerary. Moe Moe is completely fluent in English and is an informative and knowledgeable host. We visited all the sights according to plan, shared a delicious lunch, and enjoyed a beautiful sunset at U Bein Bridge. Moe Moe clearly has a good eye for photography because she kindly suggested and took excellent photos of me in the beautiful surroundings with my camera. This tour is a great way to capture some of the history of this lovely area of Myanmar. I would definitely recommend.

We started the tour by viewing the rich architectural buildings and cathedral, which was a great way to experience the colonial heritage in Myanmar. The circular train was an interesting way to see a different perspective of local Myanmar life. Passengers ranged from regular commuters to people returning from the market, preparing their freshly bought produce for resale. Our guide Peter was very knowledgeable and gave insights to the Myanmar way of life. He showed us the fruit and veg market and described the way locals prepared food. We also joined the evening tour, which visited the pier, another fruit market, electronics market, and finished at Chinatown with some barbecue food. It was a fun day with great company.

This was a viewing recommended to us and one we were interested in but could not expected what we experienced ! We finally got on the train with the guidance of our driver and sat under of fan in a rear carriage! What an experience we had from the guard with the automatic rifle to the Buddhist preacher a minute did not go past without a change of scenery around the city and a change of personnel wandering the cabin as we were offered food and gadgets ! This was seeing the life of the city in microcosm! Work is being done so the total trip of three hours is not available but our one hour plus trip endured that we experienced C21st Yangon;the Rangoon of George Orwell and the happy and welcoming nature of the Burmese community! Tragedy they have lived so long under dictatorial military rule but the essential tolerant and Buddhist nature of the society is seen on this train trip I believe!
