Inside Burma Tours

Yangon's Circular Train

There is no better way to experience Yangon life than a ride on the city's commuter train.

Clickety-clacking through 29 miles of bumpy track in true old-fashioned train style, the Yangon circle train is the Yangoonie's favourite way to travel around the city.

Climb aboard the Yangon circle train for a slow journey through the suburban outskirts, observing scenes of daily life and meeting friendly locals. Hopping off and on at leisure to explore a vibrant fresh markets and diverse neighbourhoods on foot, immersing yourself in the everyday life of Myanmar's largest city. Sit alongside commuters, watch as vendors hop on and off to sell snacks and cold drinks to the passengers, chit chat to the local inhabitants or simply gaze out the windows to observe the lively streets while the train slowly chugs along.
