While in Yangon we finally took a delightful morning trip on the famous circular train.
The full circle takes a few hours but because the tracks are being upgraded so its not possible to do a complete city donut at the moment.
Our tickets cost less than AUS$2 to go nine stations.
The trains were slow but very clean as was the station and most scenes out the window.
Many stations don’t have platforms and the carriages often feature moving ‘shops’ selling their wares to commuters.
We got on at Central Station which is downtown and alighted at Hledan Station to walk across the tracks and stroll through a colourful busy suburban markets selling everything from aloe vera to stinky durian … before stopping for a cuppa in a tea house.
Our final leg was on a local bus followed by a trishaw back to our accommodation.
It was a nice little excursion.
