What You Can Expect:
Yangon City Sightseeing Tour
Your guide will pick you up at your hotel and lead your small group on a full-day sightseeing tour of the sprawling city, which includes a relatively small downtown area. Here, explore colonial buildings and the Yangon River where tree-lined streets stretch along several lakes.
As you tour by air-conditioned vehicle, your guide offers commentary about the colonial architecture, religious buildings and parks, offering insight into the diverse population of Yangon, where world religions coexist in the former capital. Get to know the real Yangon, the largest city and major hub of Myanmar, home to some 3.5 to 5 million inhabitants.
Stop in local teashops (own expense) along the way, and see the Sule Pagoda—a Burmese stupa located in the heart of downtown. Admire the harbor and one of the colorful local markets before heading to the Strand Hotel for a complimentary drink. You’ll visit Chauk Htat Gyi (reclining Buddha) just before lunch, enjoying typical dishes from tribes all over the country such as Kachin, Shan and Rakhine.
Afterward, another local market will lead you to a small station where you’ll hop aboard the famous circular train for a 30- to 45-minute ride. Enjoy the slow pace of this antique railway, used by locals, monks and vendors who transport their goods. The train will bring your small group right behind Bogyoke Aung San Market at the heart of Yangon. You’ll have time to explore the city’s largest selection of Burmese handicrafts before your guide takes you back to your hotel.
