  • I gladly spent one evening (it was raining incessantly) by train around the city with the circular line. I admit I was afraid not to find platform, ticket office etc. instead at the entrance were very kind and with a basic English they directed me (albeit with some confusion about the number of the track). Inside is full of girls who try to sell everything but they are also kind and help tourists (among other things speak English well). Lifetime experience, take the circular line (see reviews).

  • Enter at this station and take train that carries around Yangon, is an experience that allows you to experience the local reality. Cleaning aside is worth trying.

  • Yangon City Centre. Has many stalls selling fruit and eating around the station. I feel and think, like a lot of people out here, so many people gathered here a dream coming source of the vibrant city of Yangon is here and will be watching the streams of people indefinitely.

Where to stay in Yangon (Rangoon)

It can be difficult to find decent budget accommodations in Yangon, especially downtown, where rooms are usually small and booked months in advance. Look farther away from the city center for cozier budget options, often with complimentary breakfast included. The Kandawgyi lakeside features a number of high-end establishments.
