From the hotel you will be taken to the train station, which is called the Circle Train for a reason - this train travels in a circle through the outskirts of the city for 45 minutes. Thanks to the slow travel speed, you will have enough time to let your eyes wander over the everyday hustle and bustle of Yangon. Here you will get to know the "real" life of the locals up close and discover the city from a rather unknown side. Not only outside the picture changes every few seconds and opens the view on landscapes and the life of the population, also inside you will get to know the culture and the people. Meet monks, market people, businessmen, families and children riding this train and experience exciting stories of colorful Burmese life.

Get off at the Island market and immerse yourself in the bustling daily life of the vendors. Stroll through the lively square along numerous stalls selling a wide variety of things. Use the time to capture these impressions forever in the form of photos and to get into conversation with the locals. Maybe you will also find a suitable souvenir.

We will organize the return trip for you with a private vehicle.
