Myanmar Train Ticket Booking

Travelling by train can be one of the most interesting ways to experience Myanmar, as railway journeys offer scenic views and chances to mix with locals that are often not otherwise possible.
Myanmar Train Ticket booking is crafted to provide you the convenient tool to book online and avoid the language barrier for planning and booking tickets at the train station.

Some features of Trains in Myanmar

Ordinary class: simple wooden seats, usually very crowded. Available on all trains.
First class: usually wooden seats with cushioned bottoms. Only available on certain trains.
Upper class: comfortable, large seats. Be prepared for general lack of cleaning and upkeep – and broken adjustment mechanisms! Available on all trains.
Standard sleeper: four-berth and two-berth lockable compartments, with bedclothes provided. Washbasin and toilets at the end of each sleeper carriage. Available on Yangon to Mandalay, Yangon to Bagan, and Mandalay to Myitkyina routes.
Special sleeper: self-contained compartments (maximum four people), with privacy (separate entrance, toilet, sitting and sleeping areas) but no access to the rest of the train. Water and fresh bedclothes provided. Usually only available on Yangon to Mandalay route.

Some special notes:

  • You will need your passport to buy a train ticket.
  • Many train journeys have multiple stop-off points, often allowing you to get out of the train, stretch your legs, and grab some refreshments.
  • Trains can get cold at night, so make sure to take warm clothes.
  • Buying train tickets can take a long time (sometimes as long as half an hour), as station staff go through the antiquated and bureaucratic form-filling that is required for foreigners, and friendly station masters take an opportunity to practice their English.
  • Monks have free upper class travel; they are often very chatty and offer interesting conversation!
  • Trains, and transport in general, tend to be heavily booked during then Thingyan festival in April. Please book far in advance.
