Yangon City Tour

Yangon is Myanmar’s largest city and has a noteworthy mix of the country’s old an new. You’ll see some of the most interesting colonial architecture as well as one of Myanmar’s most famous Buddhist sites, the Shwedagon Pagoda. This tour has several optional stops, allowing you to customize your experience of the city.

Get a sense of Yangon’s multicultural influences in Little India and Chinatown neighborhoods. These neighborhoods have streets lined with temples and busy restaurants. Continue to Chaukhtatgyi Paya, a 213-foot (65-m) statue of a reclining Buddha. Murals surrounding the statue depict the life of Buddha and is a good beginner’s guide to Buddhism.

Next, you have the option to visit the Bogyoke Market. This is an indoor market in a colonial-style building complete with cobblestone halls. It has been a central feature in Yangon since 1926 and is known for its jewelry vendors.

Head to Kandawgyi Park, a pleasant green space next to the city’s main water source, Kandawgyi Lake. On the lake, you’ll see Karaweik Barge, which is designed to look like a royal palace. Right behind the lake, you’ll see the glittering gold stupa of Shwedagon Pagoda, the next stop on the tour.

When you arrive at the temple, your senses will be overwhelmed with white marble and the gold leaf and diamonds that form the main pagoda. Huge, mythical beasts called chinthes guard the entrance. Inside, you’ll learn about the many relics of Buddha, including 8 strands of his hair. This stop concludes your tour and completes your introduction to Yangon culture.
