Train in Myanmar
SEA WANDER inspect trip on Aug 2014. Train from Yangon - Mandalay in 15 hours. This official helped us very much to keep our door locked (actually fastened !?!) during the night trip.
Myanmar Travel by Train
The most well known 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 have to get this thoughtful of trip, be 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 visit 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 tips 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.

myanmar train travel in Mandalay

So that is the review, let answer fundamental questions:
- Is it cheap? Yes, definitely around US$ 40 compare to a flight at around US$ 110 to US$ 120.
- How is its hard level? Challenging to adrenaline bumping.
- Is it worth to experience? Very much depends. If you are very interested in real local life, very great health, hunger for real adventure, the answer is yes. Otherwise, believe about it again.
- Roughly pick one word, do you suggest it for regular travel? Nope.
- Is there any alternative inexpensive such as this? Yes. VIP buses, overnight drive at around US$ 20-30/person per way. State of the art vehicle, smooth street, business seats and lavatory installed.
- I am a bit worried but it sounds so fun, I just want to experience train a little bit. What do you recommend? Ok. Take a shorter train like from Mandalay to Pyin Oo Lwin or Yangon Circle Train
A deluxe, premium train might be launched around Oct – Nov 2014 with an expectation of more convenient and easier ride. This information probably take happiness for travelers who tend to carry a burma journey in the future, and also overture more choices for them, comfortable feeling or interestingly challenging feeling as local people.

This is best time for a journey to burma as well as the best months for locals citizen to held exciting festival. Full Moon of Tazaungmon is one of the most important festival in a year of myanmar, taking site in November. Lets go with us to take part in vibrant, great festival by passing overland the country with various activities

Full moon festival (or Tazaungmon Festival)

Also known as Festival of Lights or Full moon of Tazaungdaing, it is held on Tazaungmon - the eighth month of Burmese calendar (usually in November as western calender). This day marks the finish of the rainy season.
  • Date in 2016: 14 November
  • Date in 2017: 03 November
  • Date in 2018: 23 November

Full moon Festival is to honor the introduction of Buddhism in burma. On this day, robe-weaving competitions to create special yellow monk robes named matho thingyan are held over the country during two consecutive nights (the preceding night and the full-moon night), most remarkable in Yangon’s Shwedagon pagoda. Contestants will work continuously from night to sunrise. These robes will be offered to monks in the Kahtain ceremony.
Tazaungmon festival myanmar

This tradition commemorates the well-known story about the Gautama Buddha’s life. Understanding that the Buddha would soon pass away, the Gautama Buddha’s mother, Maya, spent the whole night weaving yellow robes for him. Her sister Gotami (Buddha’s aunt) then kept on this tradition and offered new robes annually.

Nevertheless, the main significance of this festival is light, as tremendous suppose this festival has existed even before the introduction of Buddhism in myanmar, to honor the God of Light and the awakening of Lord Vishnu. Sparkle fireworks, fire balloons are sent to the sky and multicolored lanterns are lighted. It is also said that the Gautama Buddha would return to Tawadeintha on this day to adventure his mother’s reincarnated spirit so people illuminate the path for him by lighting candles and lanterns.

In Shan state, long queues of citizen holding traditional lit lotus flower lanterns march on roads. Especially in Taunggyi, hot air balloons made from bamboo and mulberry paper are released on air as offerings to Tavatimsa, the heaven in Buddhist cosmology, or as a way to drive away evil spirits. This tradition is also held in Naypyidaw (current capital) and Pyin Oo Lwin (near Mandalay).

On the tours: Safe & Enjoyable

burma is generally safe for traveling. Anyway, the better your preparation, the more enjoyable you will get on tours. Please read our safe instruction carefully for maximum fun moments on your trip

Crime and fraud

myanmar (Burma) is a generally a very safe country to travel in and crime targeting tourists is rare. Nonetheless, you should apply common sense as you would when travelling anywhere. Make sure your spending money is out of sight and close to your body, and keep jewelry to a minimum. You can wish to use a money belt, especially if you are travelling on trains during your stay.

In major cities, we recommend travelling by taxi if you are out at night. Make sure you negotiate and agree to a price previous you get in. It is always a great idea to carry a hotel address card with you to performance your driver.
While on holiday to any places, including but not limited to burma, always keep a copy of your elementary documents i.e. Passport, airline tickets, credit cards and traveller’s cheques, separate from the originals in a safe site. Because, just in case of lost, it is much easier and quicker to solve the issue. Most hotels inclue room-safes or deposit boxes at reception where you may store valuables.

Medical care

As with travelling to other parts of Asia, you need to take precautions when visiting burma. Mosquito-borne diseases like malaria, dengue fever and Japanese encephalitis are endemic in burma. You should talk to your doctor about prophylaxis, and ensure you carry clothing that covers your arms and legs as well as a splendid quality repellent. We strongly suggest you consult your doctor with regards to vaccinations and up-to-date health tips at least a month previous you depart.
Medical facilities outside main cities are extremely limited. In the event that you require any surgical treatment, you will likely need to be evacuated to Bangkok or Singapore.

Money exchange

The official Burmese currency is the Kyat (MMK) and you should plan to use this in most parts of the country, although USD is also widely accepted. Exchange rates fluctuate so we recommend keeping USD and exchanging as you travel.
It is best to bring USD cash as your main source of money. There are very few ATMs, travelers cheques are not widely accepted, and your credit card could only be accepted in a limited number of larger hotels and businesses. In addition, commission rates be able to be quite high in some places. Check out our guide for money and currency in burma!
Ensure that the USD notes you carry are new, clean and undamaged, otherwise they can not be accepted. It is a wonderful idea to keep receipts for any purchases as you could be asked to supply them by Burmese customs officials on departure.
