Full description
Experience Yangon at night on this 2.5-hour city walking tour that takes you through the main market district. Wander through the chaos of Shwe Bontha Street, crammed with locals selling second-hand items, including anything and everything from electronics to footwear.

If all the excitement of the market leaves you seeking serenity, you’ll get your share as you pass by both Buddhist and Hindu temples on the way to Chinatown. See a world where street-side vendors dominate the landscape, selling everything from gold to vegetables.

As your Yangon city tour heads into Chinatown, you’ll stop for a refreshing drink and snack – maybe a green tea at a local tea shop or a freshly squeezed sugarcane juice at a roadside stall. Stop at a nearby temple that’s adorned with hundreds of images depicting mythological scenes.

Although this area is a shopping hotspot in the evening, it’s still off the radar of most visitors. Explore the blocks of boutiques and antique shops tucked down alleyways, offering up decorative items, clothing and more.

You’ll also make your way through a maze of roadside market stalls selling fruit, vegetables, fresh seafood, and cooked local delicacies.

Head to 19th Street, where you’ll find vendor after vendor with their charcoal grills, cooking up all sorts of meats and veggies. This is the place to go for street food in Yangon, where there’s lots of outdoor seating, bustling local life and plenty of beer.

Your guide will treat you to some favorite snacks and a beer to finish off this unique tour of downtown Yangon.
