Details

Your tour guide will meet you at the hotel at 8:30AM. Embark on a half-day tour of Yangon to visit the highlights and main attractions such as the 2000-year-old golden Sule Pagoda located at the center of the city. This is a great example of modern Asian business life melding with ancient Burmese tradition. You will find a lively atmosphere around the pagoda with many local visitors as well as shops.

You can then visit the famous Bogyoke Market (closed on Mondays) also known as the Scott Market. This is Myanmar’s largest market and contains over 2,000 local shops where you can browse through a variety of items including traditional clothes, art, jewelry, souvenirs etc. End your trip with a visit to the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda, which is one of Buddhism’s most sacred sites. The pagoda is believed to enshrine eight hairs of the Guatama Buddha as well as relics of 3 former Buddhas. The massive bell shaped stupa is plated with gold and the tip of the stupa is set with diamonds and rubies, sapphires and topaz - a stunning sight and a most fitting place to finish your trip in this "Golden Land".
