The round trip takes about 3 1/2 hours. The train is very basic and provides a glimpse at the lives of the more unfortunate residents of Yangon. It is a sobering experience but I can recommend it. It is not necessary to go full circle....More

It is one of the most important public transport in Yangon. The price is very cheap but the service is very bad. The seats are bad and some passengers are lying down on two or theee seats. You can't expect a seat on the circular...More

As many rightly mention, the trip is worth for allowing you a direct contact with the local crowd. That's indeed a relax and pleasant experience. Our disappointment comes more from the endless garbage of all kind that surrounds the tracks during the entire journey. We've...More

I booked a tour with Urban Adventure to get an experience on Yangon Circular train. Good sightseeing trip. It is an impactful trip for me. It may change one's perspective on their own life, and hopefully bring back some positive changes.

A cheap (30 cents) way to spend 3.5 hours mixing in with everyday life in Yangon. Not clean, not sanitary, very hot, not plush, but very real and also safe. Watching the people getting on and off at various stops, seeing the city and countryside...More

We rode the line for an hour or so before grabbing a taxi back to downtown. It’s a methodical journey with authentic rocking carriages. People come and go with produce to sell. Fantastic value at 200MMK per ticket. I would ride it again.

About 3 hours is about right for the entire loop. You can get off at any of the stops on the way. In that case, once you finish exploring the area you went off, just take a taxi back to where ever you want to go. Either... More
