Can start the train trip from Yangon station , meaningful experience for local life. Suggest go 30-40 min , and you can either return on the train or by taxi.

See Yangon as the locals do - sit back and take it all in. We spoke with many locals on our trip who were very helpful and kind and offered us their food!

What a shame......it's a lovely old building that's in need of some tender loving care. Just clean it up and repaint would be a start.

By taking the City Circular Train you really get a taste of the life of Yangon and the people who live there. It is a 3 hour ride, however you can hope off and explore different neighborhoods...if you are adventurous!
