If you have some time to spare in Yangon, then the circular train is definitely something you should add to your list. When we were there they were repairing the rails and we could only go 1h one way and then back, but it was...More

Granted some aspects of this ride are fascinating - seeing local people and circumnavigating the city - but there are some other aspects that made this for me less than a superlative experience. First and foremost, many tourists understand this as a human safari and...More

There is no other better way to see the whole Yangon than this 3 hours circular train ride all the way from the city center through the slum area. If you like people watching, this is the best option too. You will meet the friendly...More

The train trip was quite long. There were many hustlers on the train trying to sell you food products. You were able to meet the locals.

Although the Circle Line in Yangon is being renovated you can take it west as far as Insein or east a similar distance. Quite frankly an hour there and another one back is as much as you need. We did not walk around at Insein...More

I enjoyed it. Not a top line train or anything. Actually I road in a train that was old and retired from Japan - all the words and signs in the train for stations were from Jalan. It emphasizes the rural-feel even though it’s in...More

Unfortunately the train did not do the full round the day we took it, only one hour in one direction. It was a very interesting ride though, you get to meet the locals and see the suburbs of Yangon. Highly recommendable.

When I was in Yangon, it rains almost every day from 3pm onwards till late night. So it is better to get it done before 2pm and back to town for lunch. 😉
