Great way to meet local people and spend a few lazy hours sightseeing. We took the whole route, but fell asleep for half an hour, which was nice as well.

In the morning as it’s not so hot. We did it around 9AM once it got a few stops away from Yangon there was only a handful of people on it! Have a great time in Yangon.
