The Yangon Circle Train, Yangon
Myanmar, Yangon and Around

Info : The Yangon Circle Train

This half-day trip allows you to travel out into the rural areas surrounding Yangon and to get up close and personal with the people using the train to go about their daily business.  The train departs from Yangon Central Railway Station and slowly makes its way out into the suburbs: the trains are fairly old and do not offer a luxurious experience, but this is a fantastic way of meeting local people and observing a little something of their day-to-day lives.  Local people are generally very friendly and curious to see foreigners travelling on their transport system, and so may well strike up conversation.  You will also see streetfood hawkers with baskets and trays of snacks to sell to passengers waiting on the platforms.

An hour's journey out of the city brings you to Insein, about 20 miles from downtown Yangon where you disembark and take a stroll through a local market before returning to the city.  The train takes around three hours to complete its loop.

Customer Feedback
[Our cruise] was excellent in every way and we had a memorable holiday. Terry our guide made the trip for us. I couldn't recommend [it] more highly, perfect in every way. Loved the informality of it all and the evening cocktails were delicious. Trips ashore clambering up the banks of the Irrawaddy into little villages were quite delightful and locals fascinated by us. Excellent mixed itinerary organised by our guide which took in all aspects of life.
