The circle train is a really fun experience in Yangon. The train is used a lot by commuters in the morning and evening rush hours but is very quiet through the middle of the day. I'd suggest avoiding it during peak times. We took the...More

Interesting way to get a bit closer to the locals. All manner of folk ride this commuter train, along with the inevitable vendors. Loved the lady carrying watermelon slices on her head. The train passes through rural, urban and market scenery, so you get a...More

Going to the station, being directed to the ticket office, rushing to board, people loading large bags and boxes. It's interesting for about 1 hour, then it is the same inside and out. It still costs only 200 Kyat. I recommend getting off at Insein,...More

Great scenery. You can hop on and off wherever you’d like but make sure to take a look at your google maps to see where you are and if you are near a road to access a taxi. Very safe and fun experience.

A must for anyone visiting Yangon. Tickets cost 200 kyats, which is just 15c or 11p in English money. The journey is a totally immersive trip into Yangon city, suburban and rural life as you travel slowly from the inner city through crowded neighbourhoods, out...More

With tour guide luckily. Hot sweaty and no English announcements, yet geared towards only tourists!! Shows the worst side of the city with homes along the track. Leave out and get a guide to take you into markets etc as ours did afterwards.

Commuting Burmese style and a great way to see parts of Yangon that are off the tourist trail. It is fascinating watching the vendors ply their trade, which they so do efficiently and impressively. However, it does get quite hot and the train doesn't move...More

This the activity that I enjoyed the most in Myanmar after visiting major tourist cities like Inle Lake, Bagan, Mandalay, and Yangon. The train takes about 2 hours to complete one circle. You don't have to go the full circle, but I suggest that you...More

Had little time on our hands so decided on the circle train on recordation from a friend. The cost was 200 Kyat (20 cents Aust) and took around 3 hours. What a great way to see the local Yangon. You see the best and the...More

I'd say go for the counter clockwise one, it's the same platform of the ticket selling place (platform 6 or 7), get off from danyangon station, there are always taxi available outside of the market, it's around 9000-10000... More
