Welcome to Yangon! Our guide and driver will wait for you here and transfer you to Yangon. Lunch at restaurant in Yangon before check-in hotel. After refreshment we will start our visits the Sule pagoda, said to be more than 2,000 years old, a great attraction to Buddhist pilgrims and visitors to Yangon. With the location right in the very hectic center of the city, visiting Sule Pagoda is also enjoying hustling life of Yangon, tasting local foods and walking around to observe Burmese people with their charming traditional costume and famous hospitality and kindness. Go on to the colonial quarter, visit the City Hall, Mahabandoola Park, Fruit Market, Botataung Pagoda and Nanthida Jetty before returning to the hotel.

Breakfast at the hotel before transfer to the Golden Rock via Bago. We will stop en route at Taukkyan War Memorial, dedicated to the British soldiers who died in Myanmar during WWII, to listen to our tourguide about an important time in contemporary history of Myanmar. Upon arrival at the base camp of the Golden Rock (locally named Kyaikhtiyo), we will change to a government’s truck to climb up the hill for about half an hour, then walk on foot uphill for about another hour to arrive at the Golden rock. At the end of the road, the sunset on of the Rock and the surrounding area will amaze us with their magnificent view - a quaint temple on the top of a nearly-but-never-fallen giant rock, which is covered day by day by real golden plates from pilgrims. Check in hotel.

Wake up early if you wish to catch the brilliant sunrise at the Golden Rock before returning to the hotel for breakfast. We will then get down to the mountainfoot and drive to Thaton -1st capital of the Mon Empire, 72km away from the mountainfoot of Mt. Kyaikhtiyo. This is the land of legends, though not much ancient vestiges left by now. In 1057AD King Anawrahta of Bagan had conquered Thaton because King Manuha of Thaton had refused to send him the holy Buddhist scriptures “Tripitaka”. After this incident the 1st united empire had been set by King Anawrahta. Go on to visit Shwe Zayan Paya (pagoda), built during the Mon Era, before we continue via Mottama (62km away) and cross the ferry to Mawlamyine, the former capital of Mon State. Mottama (Martaban) is situated now at the rivermouth of Thanlwin River and used to be a very important seaport in 16th century. On the opposite side across the river is Mawlamyine or Moulmein, nowadays is the 4th biggest city of Myanmar.

After breakfast at hotel, we will drive to Mudon (30km away) with stopover to visit the newly built world’s biggest Reclining Buddha statue (160m long). Continue to the coastal resort Kyaikkami, visit Yele Paya which is famus for the Buddha status brought from Sri Lanka. Drive on to Setse Beach at the Gulf of Martaban before returning to Mawlawyine.

After breakfast, we will drive to Thanbyuzayat. The Commonwealth War Cemetery during WWII  Thanbyuzayat used to be the Western terminus of the Thailand-Burma Railway linking up with the pre-war coastal railway between Ye and Yangon. Thanbyuzayat was also the site of a Japanese Prisoner of war camp for the prisoners who worked at the construction of the railway, and over 3,000 Allied servicemen have been buried here in the Thanbyuzayat War Cemetery. Today a clock tower stands at the central road junction with roads headed north to Mawlamyine, south to Ye, and west to Kyaikkami and Setse. Drive back to Mawlamyine.
