Posted on May 31st, by Juan in Monuments & Sights. 3 comments

This well known colonial building is the former Myanmar railway headquarters. It is located on the corner of Bogyoke Aung San Road and Sule Pagoda Road in Yangon (just next to Bogyoke Market)

It consists of 3 colonial buildings which are surrounded by beautiful gardens and a spacious entrance.

The colonial building will be turned into a five-star hotel in two years following the Government’s demand for more luxury accommodation in the city.

The Government is focused on improving the quality and quantity of accommodation on offer in Yangon to host the increasing number of business travelers and tourists.

Yangon Central Railway Station. The circle line route starts from here and takes 3 hours to do a complete loop around Yangon’s suburbs, if you don’t get off at any station. Don’t forget to bring your passport with a valid Myanmar visa and one dollar.

Yangon train station is the largest railway station in Myanmar and it’s located in downtown Yangon, just a 10 minute walk from Sule Pagoda.
