- Train Guide
Yangon is Myanmar’s largest city, and its cultural and financial centre. The 716 km of rail track between Mandalay and passes through the fertile flat plains of central Myanmar over the course of 15 hour journey. To fully appreciate the scenery we recommend taking the 06.00 departure on Train #12. The other trains all depart in the late afternoon and travel overnight to arrive in Yangon in the morning.
The most comfortable train to book is Train #4 departing at 17:00 because it has upper class sleeper seats and a restaurant. The other overnight through train, Train #6, is newer but has no sleeper car.
