Welcome to the capital of Myanmar. What? Yangon is not the capital? Oh yes, the capital moved to Naypyidaw in November 2005. But the city continues to remain Myanmar’s biggest as well as the country’s economical and important commercial center. Include in cool sites and destinations such as Shwedagon Pagoda, colonial buildings and unique life not seen anywhere else and you’re in for a heck of a ride. That’s right, hop on the Circle Train and truly experience Yangon!
Be warned, the train is slow. But that’s a good thing because you’ll have time to truly breathe in the environment, no pun intended. Smells of betel nuts, people carrying food and groceries and Burmese snacks and treats is part of the experience. You’ll also be in the company of your average Burmese during the day and also get to see villages and the overall colorful atmosphere of Burmese rural life.
If you expect air-conditioning, first class service, ultra soft and cushioned chairs with tons of leg space, you will not get it here. This is how average Burmese travel, and the experience here is meant for you to be a part of that. We highly recommend the window seat. Just stick you r head out an be a part of the rural environment. The entire loop takes about three hours, so sit back, relax, enjoy and breathe in Yangon! If you are looking to vary your stay in the big city, this is the tour for you!
