In the seventh platform,to buy tickets.over the bridge, close to the sixth platform, some similar to Harry Potter's film, mysterious platform. There is no toilet on the train,...More

If you are a train buff you should take a ride on a local train. Very basic but a real life experience. Only costs about 20c. Try to go outside peak hours. Old carriages but you get local sellers walking through the train. A great...More

If you have extra few hours in Yangon this is the perfect activity. The train moves slowly around the city and you get to see some local housing, local markets. Definitely worth experiencing and it costs 2 USD ish.
