    A nice place to visit apart from staying in Yangon. Apart from visiting different pagodas, the tour guide also brought us to some places that was not in the itinerary like china town, Indian town when we came back to Yangon quite early. The place for lunch was worth to go to taste traditional Myanmar dishes in a decent restaurant. Both the tour guide and the driver were nice and helpful. We had our trip from 8am until 6pm which we all thought it’s a reasonable trip with good service quality.

What To Expect

Escape the busy pace of every day life and spend some time exploring new places with this 10-hour daytime excursion from Yangon, Myanmar. In the morning, you'll get picked up at your hotel/accommodation in Yangon, before you proceed toward the Twante Township. Known as a quiet town with a vibrant culture, this is the ideal place to visit for travelers looking to get away from the city or simply discover new cultures and traditions! On the way, take in the stunning view of the lush greenery and the picturesque Yangon River. Once you arrive, begin exploring Twante's peaceful streets with your guide, who will tell you all about the town's history as you walk toward a local market. Check out the various products being sold at the market, typically composed of pottery and earthenware made with styles and techniques unique to this particular area, before you enjoy a delicious lunch at a local restaurant (own expense.) After lunch, stop by a pottery function in Twante, where you can see some more of the town's distinctive pottery and discover how the residents are aiming to revive these clay crafts by transforming them into all-purpose items. If you wish to see Twante from a unique perspective, you can also pay extra to hop on a trishaw, where you can enjoy a break from all the walking as the driver takes you through the narrow streets. The tour ends with a visit to Shwesandaw Pagoda, a famous tourist destination and Buddhist pilgrimage site, as it's said to contain a couple of Buddha's hairs. Marvel at the gorgeous sight of the setting sun painting the sky and the pagoda various colors, before you pack up and get dropped off back at your accommodation.

    Our guide was great, knowledgeable, and accomodating. Our driver however had problems with directions. Our driver also kept us waiting for him after we had our lunch. Overall great tour and guide, although the pottery tour & local market was underwhelming.

    The driver was very nice and polite.He speak English well. Twante is near Yangon but i can feel the different mood. Actually, it is nothing much to travel but to see what outside downtown is like. Food is not so clean, you got to aware about it. Shwesandaw temple is beautiful but smaller than I ve seen in Pyay.
