Thanlyin is the earliest establishment in Myanmar by Portuguese mercenary Filipe de Brito and was once an important Port City of the Mon Dynasty that held the title of Myanmar's main trading center from the 14th to the 17th century. The suburban town is now a peaceful sleeping village just two bridges across from Yangon. And you will get a chance to explore it in full on an 8 hour tour together with an English speaking guide. Start off with a visit to Kyaik Khauk Pagoda, a Buddhist Stupa and a popular pilgrimage sight. After the cultural part, have a break over lunch before enjoying a drive to Kyauktan, a Buddhist town to the south of Yangon. There, hop on a boat to visit the famous YelePhaya Pagoda set on a small island in the river.
