Reviewed March 31, 2013

Longer than you think, and transfers not so convenient when you get off and back on. But a wonderful slice of Yangon life,w ith vibrant market selling on board.

“Escape heat of the day and get out of the city on this easy excursion”
Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Got to platform 7, buy a ticket for a $1 and take this 3 hour round trip. It goes city, suburbs, country villages and farming. Whilst there was a hive of station trading about a third way round, the best part for me was the second half in the fields. Plenty of activity and sights along the whole line. You have to be quick with camera and as you are watching all the while you dont notice the time pass by

“This is a must do”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We took the train to mix with the local people and this we did. Whilst communication was difficult they were pleased to see us and helped us as much as they could. The experience of having big bags of fruit and veg due for the market the next village along. One chap even brought on board a Rattan settee and two chairs. Take the carriage that has the plastic seats they are more comfortable. The station master actually held the Burmese back to allow us to get on first which was a little embarrising , but the locals remained friendly towards us

“Glad we went on a weekday.”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Stayed on the train for nearly 3 hours, really enjoyed watching the locals interact, got some amazing pics & images. Left the train at Myittar Nyunt as it was close to Chaukhtatgyi Paya & Ngahtatgyi Paya, had a drink in the local shop, then taxi to the sites.
