Tickets at the Station
Myanmar Railways (MR) does not offer online booking. Instead foreign visitors wanting to travel independently on Myanmar trains must wait in line with local customers, and then once at the counter fill in long forms before finally being given a part hand written ticket. At busy times the ticket buying process can take upwards of an hour and frequently involves frustrating conversations with ticket counter staff who have difficulties speaking or understanding English.
- Travel Tip: If you book online you can avoid all these difficulties. Our representatives at 12Go in Yangon will do the queuing for you, and the form filling, and make sure that your train ticket is ready for collection in Yangon 1 or 2 days before you travel.
- Service Fee: Most customers find that the small service fee is well worth the convenience of being able to arrive at the train station and simply board the train. Older travellers will remember when it was a common practice in many Asian countries, such as India, to get one of the staff working at their guesthouse or hotel to buy their train ticket because the process of buying a ticket at the station took a long time and really was not very enjoyable. Booking online through Myanmar Trains is the same thing, just through a company over the internet rather than by asking the person at a hotel reception desk to buy your tickets for you.
