Yangon Central Railway Station Tours

3 Reviews
Yangon Central Railway Station
Yangon’s Central Railway Station isn’t only the gateway to Myanmar where you can catch the train for further adventures around the country, but it is also the place where one can observe the fascinating everyday life. The station is a hive of activity, with thousands upon thousands of commuters passing through its halls every day. Especially photographers love coming here, interacting with the commuters and maybe even hoping onto the Circle Train for a three hour ride through the suburbs. This iconic line rattles slowly over 29 miles of bumpy tracks and through 38 stations, while vendors hop on and off, advertising their wares, and the uncomfortable benches in the stuffy train cars make your backside hurt.

The Central Railway Station was designed by the famous architect U Tin, who created the station in his distinct fusion style of Western and Burmese elements after the original structure was destroyed by the retreating British forces. With its green tiered pyatthat roofs and golden towers, the bright white paint job, the big windows and graceful pillars, the building has become an iconic sight in Yangon. But although the elegant station is spectacular to look at from the outside and without a doubt very photogenic, it’s the little moments and the activity inside, that make the trip to the station worth it. 

Practical Info

Since the Yangon Central Railway Station is the main hub in the city, it can of course be visited any time of day. You can find it in the city center on Bo Gyoke Road, just a short walk from the Sule Pagoda and City Hall.
Address: Kun Chan Rd, Yangon, Myanmar

Beyond Yangon local discovery with public transport

Best Yangon day escape tour. This tour is using public transports such as train, tuk-tuk, taxi, boat trip over Moeyungyi Wildlife Wetland Resort and walking to some villages in the hidden places. Even people of Yangon have never seen some of the places. Train ride through beautiful countryside for less than 2 hours is enjoyable and see people life on the train and at the stations. Bago Central Market visit, 37 Nats stories to listen, Hinthargone legend, and Royal Mother of Bago story are interesting cultural introduction. Later we go to Moeyunegyi Wetland Resort where over 125 kinds of native and migrated birds land for the foods (best time for birds watching is November to March). Boat trip to lotus field is joyful. Home cooked lunch in a community village. We can meet 20-30 women workers making cheroots and later we learn recycle iron workshops and at the end, hike up to Dae-zun-par Mountain for the fantastic view. Along the way can see hermits and nuns. Finally we go back Yangon.

Yangon City Tour with a Local guide

In 1755, King Alaungpaya conquered central Myanmar and built a new city at Dagon, a fishing village that had existed for centuries around the Shwedagon pagoda. He renamed the place Yangon, meaning 'end of strife'.In 1852, the residential areas of the town were damaged by the 2nd Anglo-Myanmar War. After the war, the British seized the power in lower part of Myanmar and reconstructed a modern city, Rangoon (corruption of Yangon). Under the supervision of Englishmen, Dr. William Montgomery and Captain Fraser, Rangoon became the most beautiful and cleanest city in South East Asia and made it capital. It is easy to get a sense of how prosperous of colonial Rangoon was from the monumental architecture that still graces the city's downtown.
