Yangon

Highlight

  • Yangon was the capital of the Yangon Region of Myanmar, also known as Burma. Yangon served as the capital of Myanmar until 2006, when the military government relocated the capital to the purpose-built city of Naypyidaw in central Myanmar. With over 7 million people, Yangon is Myanmar's largest city and its most important commercial centre.
  • Yangon boasts the largest number of colonial-era buildings in Southeast Asia, and has a unique colonial-era urban core that is remarkably intact. The colonial-era commercial core is centred around the Sule Pagoda, which is reputed to be over 2,000 years old. The city is also home to the gilded Shwedagon Pagoda – Myanmar's most sacred Buddhist pagoda. 
  • Visiting the authenticity of this beautiful city, you will have a good opportunity to discover the vibrant markets, impressive golden Buddha constructions and images as well as beautiful parks. You will enjoy the British colonial-style city center; explore local market, cave, many pagodas and temples.

Then, you'll pass along the way to Mahabandoola Park where Independent Monument exists. Continue your tour by passing City Hall, a little india and a little china.

Have breakfast at hotel. Today your guide will pick up your at your hotel and escape from the glamour and noise of Yangon to the small, rural town of Thanlyin and Kyauktan, just across the river from Yangon.  
Thanlyin is a relaxing place, with shaded streets and a busy market to stroll through, but there is little of the ancient city to be seen. Our first stop is at Kyaik-khauk Pagoda which is a scale-down Shwedagon with stupendous views from its hilltop location.
Next, we'll visit Thanlyin's market where you can see local vendors and lives of rural Burmese people.
Afterwards, we'll continue our visit to the remains of the Portuguese-build church, which was constructed in 1750.
In the afternoon, continue our way to southeast of Thanlyin to visit Yele Pagoda which is a sparkling floating temple adrift on a river. Catch one of the local ferry boats to reach the islet. If you wish, you can feed the massive catfish splashing about at the temple complex's edge.    
After exploring the Yele Pagoda, we'll return back to Yangon and head to your hotel where remainder of the day is your leisure.
