Myanmar Travel by Train
The most renowned and possibly longest rout train is Yangon – Mandalay. It departs at 5 pm, ends at 8 am of the following days and takes 15 hours sharply. If you must get this good-hearted of trip, make sure that you are strong enough to survive when the trip finishes. Generally, Myanmar’s trains are ancient. The railway tracks were degraded seriously and the carriages shake so intensively that it is impossible to read or even walk. Throughout the way, trains shake continuously, sway left to right, then jump up to down. It will be very much beyond your imagination and completely in the opposite side to trains travel in Vietnam or any other SEA countries. Inside cabins, fans – yes, soft berth – yes, air conditioners – no, lock – kinda…yes, actually a hook which easily loose off because of train shaking. The advice is to try to look for some fasteners to keep the door “locked” (!?). The train moves rather fast but due to the rail way condition that makes the whole carriage bounce steadily.
