We loved this jump into the everyday Myanmar life. Every minute, something is happening, people selling a surprising variety of goods or people standing outside the door to cool down and so on. It was a real great fun and a great moment. You can do the all around town or choose the get in one station and stop whenever you want.

Interesting day event. A slow trip around the capital. Very helpful ticket office on the platform. We have been on the railway twice and it is a good way to get a quick picture of Yangon. On each occasion we have got off at different stops and explored more on foot. A worthwhile activity.

Truthfully, there was not much to see from the train. Windows had darkened band across them, obstructing the view outside when passengers are seated. Riders also pulled shades down blocking the afternoon hot sun and also the view.

The interesting part, though, was not the view outside, but the action taking place inside the train. We enjoyed observing vendors selling baskets of fruit, competing with other vendors as they made their way up and down the aisles with delicious-looking bunches of grapes and other snacks.

We stayed on the train for about 45 minutes and arranged for a ride back. I would not recommend taking the train for 3 hours, the ride is bumpy and uncomfortable and there are more interesting things to see and do in Yangon.

It's a long slow journey but quite entertaining. You might have to stand for the first part of the journey as you leave the city, but seats free up after a few stations. Very interesting to observe the vendors walking through the train selling all kinds of products. The trains themselves seem to be mainly old Japanese commuter trains with diesel locomotives.
