If you get caught in a squall at Da Nyin Gone Station, you can escape to the covered platform. Unless the rain is very heavy, this will help you avoid squalls. Even though there are only a limited number of covered areas on the long platform, it is safe to go to the uncovered areas where vendors have set up store. There, the merchants open parasols. You can get in under them.

The sun in Myanmar is very strong. Therefore, people who work in the sun take measures to protect themselves from sunburn. The easiest way to prevent sunburn is to wear a hat. Many people wear hats similar to the non-la hats often seen in Vietnam. The next most common practice seems to be to put up large parasols and do business under them.

In the Da Nyin Gone Station, many peddlers set up their stores like an open-air market, and each of them put up a parasol. I don't know why, but what is interesting is the color scheme. The interesting thing is the color scheme of the parasols, which all have the same color scheme. It is the same color scheme used for beach parasols in Japan, so it is strange to see them standing in a place that is not even a beach. Seeing the parasols open on the railroad tracks was somewhat exciting.
