Full description
Meet your guide at your hotel and firstly drive to Kyeet Myin Dine railway station. From here, take a 15-minute train ride on the Yangon Circular Train. Stop at Yangon railway station and drive to visit Bogyoke Aung Sann Market (Scott Market – closed on Mondays), where you may find various Myanmar handicrafts, jade, jewelry, clothing, and beautiful longyi.

Next, go on a walking tour, setting off from Sule Pagoda in central downtown Yangon. On the way, you can see Yangon City Hall, Independence Monument, Mahabandoola Park, and many former colonial buildings. The next stop is the 70-meter long Chaukhtatgyi Pagoda giant reclining Buddha, which is equal to the height of a six-story building.

In the late afternoon, you will visit Kandawgyi Park which has a great view of a beautiful lake and Shwedagon Pagoda in the background. You can also see Karaweik royal floating barge, which was built in 1974. Enjoy the sunset at Shwedagon Pagoda, which was built over 2,600 years ago. The Pagoda is always full of local people praying and make offerings, and is a fascinating place to spend time watching the world go by.
