Myanmar is well known for its fascinating history, vivid traditions and rich culture - on this 5 hour tour of Yangon, you will get to see the best of it!
Ready to see what all the fuss is about? Burma (Myanmar) has a truly fascinating history, tradition, and culture, and this Yangon city tour will give you the opportunity to explore some of the city’s icons and better understand local life here. Meet up with your English speaking guide and head to Chaukhtetkyi Pagoda, home to a reclining Buddha that's one of the most honoured in the country and one of the largest in all of Myanmar. After the visit to the Pagoda, your cultural tour of Yangon will continue with a walk through the local residential area, through Kandawgyi Park. Along the way, your guide will share local stories and anecdotes, as well as answer the many questions you likely have about local life in the city. We'll pause for a tea break and people watching before heading into the Shwedagon Pagoda, the real highlight of the tour. Its magnificent gold dome rises for a staggering 98 meters and is decorated with precious stones.
The highlight of the tour was definitely my guide, Kay. She was friendly, knowledgable and was genuinely interested in showing Yangon and the local way of life. In terms of value for money, you'd definitely stretch your budget further if you did all three venues on a self-guided basis, as stated in the itinerary. However, the added personal touch of having a guide definitely made it a memorable afternoon.
