How to Catch a Train in Myanmar (Video)


If you haven’t taken a train in Myanmar (otherwise known as Burma), you might want to watch this video for tips on how to catch a train in Myanmar. It seems, at some stations outside Yangon, some of the trains don’t stop at every station — so you’d better be able to run fast if you plan on jumping aboard.

Of course, no word if this is the norm in Myanmar (I tend to doubt it), but it’s still kind of fun to watch. Especially the guy grinning like a loon once the woman who’s with him is safely (we hope!) on the train.

Did you also notice the older woman manages to get on by herself, no assistance needed, while the younger woman needs two men to help her board the train?

What is the younger generation coming to, all over the world? 🙂
