The people in the Da Nyin Gone station were not only those who had come to catch the train. There are also many peddlers. There were more people doing business and shoppers than people who came to take the train. The vendors were selling vegetables here and there, and the station was like a market. I came here to visit the Da Nyin Gone market next to the station, but the station itself was already like a market without even leaving the station. Looking at the station crowded with vendors, I felt an atmosphere similar to that of the market in Mae Klong, Thailand. But this one is much more minor. While Mae Klong was swarming with tourists, there were almost no tourists here.

I climbed up on the bridge to get a bird's eye view of the station. I saw peddlers working along the tracks. I could also see many vegetables lined up on the platform. Perhaps the reason for selling on the platform is for the convenience of shoppers. If you buy something here, you can get on a train right away. Though trains do not come that often.
