Itinerary

Day 1

Yangon

Welcome to Yangon, the commercial and spiritual centre of Myanmar. After your airport transfer to our hotel, the day is to spend as you wish, acquainting yourself with the bustling streets of downtown Yangon or adjusting to the time difference before the activities of the next day. In the evening there will be a welcome meeting from your tour guide.
Overnight: Yangon

Day 2

Yangon pagodas, tea rooms & markets

Today we explore the fascinating city of Yangon and its famous religious monuments. In the heart of downtown we begin with a photo stop in front of Yangon City Hall, before visiting the Sule Pagoda, which is a peaceful place to retreat from the bustle of the city. The pagoda is near Maha Bandoola Park which is encircled by a host of colonial buildings and heritage sites, including Independence Monument and the High Court. We also see the hollow, golden Botahtaung Pagoda before lunch at the Yangon Tea House, which is reminiscent of the grand tea houses of colonial times and serves a delicious cup of traditional tea.

After lunch we take a stroll around the colourful Bogyoke (Scott) Market, which sells an array of goods, including gemstones, handicrafts and clothes. After some retail therapy we visit the giant 70 metre-long reclining Buddha of Chaukhtagyi Paya at Chaukhtagyi Pagoda, which has a crown encrusted in diamonds and other precious stones.

Later this evening we enjoy an excursion to the most revered Buddhist temple in Myanmar, the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda. Standing at 90 metres tall, the gold leaf central stupa dominates the city’s skyline and turns vivid hues of yellow, orange and red when the sun begins to set.
Overnight: Yangon  |  Breakfast, Lunch

Day 3

Yangon Circle Line Train Trip

This morning we drive to Pasondan Jetty, where we cross the Yangon River by local ferry arriving at Dala Village. The village is a striking contrast from bustling Yangon with a relaxed village feel. Sit back and relax as we take a trickshaw, (three-wheeled bicycle taxi) through the small lanes, market streets and friendly village neighborhoods with stops made at points of interest along the way. Returning to Yangoon we take the Yangon Circle Line Train just as thousands of Burmese do each day and discover local life and charactor filled neighbourhood along along our journey. We end the day with a visit to the Gems Museum where precious stones and minerals, mined in the country are displayed. This evening offers free time.
Overnight: Yangon  |  Breakfast

Day 4

Yangon - your way

Spend today in Yangon as you wish, exploring the vibrant city at your own pace. Stop for drinks and barbeque in buzzing Chinatown, enjoying dishes of rice congee and grilled pork skewers, browse the stalls of Bogyoke Aung San market, walking through the rows of art, rare gems and jewellery, and visit Kandawgyi Park, a tranquil green park where there are many places to eat and drink along the lake. At the heart of Yangon is the downtown area, an easy to navigate centre full of colonial-era buildings and a historical charm. Ask your guide the day before for any suggestions and recommendations to ensure you spend your time here in the best way.
