Circular train and the golden pagode shwedagon brought me to the heart of Myanmar. Yangon is unlike other part of the country, it is quite similar to other South East Asian country having roads packed with vehicles. But their kindness and friendly smile on their faces are the most unforgettable experience and something I felt different from the others.

The three hour train ride is probably the best getaway from the crowds. It runs through all the local suburbs with people boarding and departing in short period of time. It is cheap and you can stay there as long as you can!
