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.
