Yangon Arrival

Upon arrival, you will be met outside the baggage claim area by your guide who will escort you to a waiting vehicle for your transfer to downtown with a brief introduction en route. Your guide will be holding a welcome signboard with the ASIA TOUR ADVISOR LOGO & your name. During the drive your guide will provide an introduction to Yagon.

Located in the fertile delta region of central Burma (Myanmar), the former capital and waterfront city of Yangon with its crumbling British colonial mansions and ancient stupas, thriving restaurants and lively bars, is a melting pot of old and new. Home to over four million inhabitants, it's a sprawling city, the streets interspersed with parks and lakes, much of its allure stemming from the colourful street life. Marvel at the glittering Shwedagon Pagoda, wander the cobblestone streets of Bogyoke Market or simply watch the rickshaw drivers in their striped longyis (sarongs) peddle lazily through the streets as you sip on a cup of tea at a roadside tea stall.

Yagon Tour

Accompanied by your guide explore the sights of Yangon. Begin with a visit to the octagonal Sule Pagoda. Originally an Indian structure but now Burmese, it is thought to be over 2,000 years old and said to enshrine a hair of the Buddha. Stroll through downtown Yangon with its faded colonial buildings and leafy boulevards and visit the beautiful colonial style Post Office. Watch the locals going about their daily business as you pass Mahabandoola Park, named after General Maha Bandula who fought against the British in the First Anglo-Burmese War. The park includes the Independence Monument, an obelisk which commemorates Burmese independence gained from the British in 1948. Next visit Chaukhtatgyi and the Reclining Buddha which measures 70 metres (230 feet) in length.

In the afternoon you visit the National Museum, the principle museum of Burmese art, history and culture. The museum was founded in 1952 and houses an extensive collection of ancient artefacts, ornaments, art works, inscriptions and historic memorabilia, related to history, culture and the civilisation of the Burmese people.

Next stop is Bogyoke Market, one of the oldest markets in Yangon, with colonial architecture and cobbled streets. It offers Burmese handicrafts and gemstones but also has traditional Burmese and Chinese food stalls. After the market, head to the Indian Quarter for a very different view of the city. Here you will find Hindu Temples and street stalls selling Indian food. End the day with a visit to the breathtaking Shwedagon Pagoda, or Golden Pagoda, its stupa dominating the city’s skyline. This is one of the holiest places in Burma, and one reason why Burma is known as the "Land of Golden Pagodas". The pagoda itself is 99 metres (326 feet) high, studded with solid gold plates and decorated with diamonds and other precious jewels.

Yagon Tour

Spend the morning learning about Burmese cuisine with an exclusive cooking demonstration in one of Yangon's best restaurants. Burmese cuisine is a delightful mixture of fragrant curries, tangy salads, healthy soups and tasty sweets, influenced by its neighbours, but with its own distinctive results.

Set off with your guide to Padonmar Restaurant, set in an old converted residential house. At the restaurant, meet with the chef and discuss the day's plan. Then visit the local market to explore the stalls where a huge variety of fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, spices, herbs, pastes and other sauces used in local cuisine are on offer. Your chef will explain how each of the tropical ingredients are used in Burmese cooking as they are selected from the market.

Return to Padonmar Restaurant where you will prepare the ingredients with your chef using traditional techniques to cook several Burmese dishes. At the end of the demonstration, enjoy the delicious meal that you helped prepare. After lunch return to your hotel.

Yagon Departure

Breakfast at your hotel. Free time for visiting city or shopping until pick you up and transfer you to airport for your departure flight.

Uncovering the Hidden Gems of Yangon
Reviewed On: Apr 06, 2023Isabella GNew Zealand

The Discover Yangon tour was an amazing experience. Our tour guide, Aung, was fantastic and showed us some of the lesser-known parts of Yangon that we wouldn’t have found on our own. We visited the vibrant Bogyoke Aung San Market, the stunning Karaweik Palace, and the impressive Yangon Central Railway Station. It was a great way to see the city and learn about its rich history and culture.

We booked a 4 days vacation for two via ATA and it was more than excellent. Our contact Tran was so patient in finding exactly what we wanted. Everything was perfectly arranged. We simply worry nothing but enjoy our trip. Of course the country is worth more than one visit. So next time we will again contact Tran to make sure we have the same experience.

This was the most amazing trip to an incredible country. The people are beautiful and it is a pleasure to travel in such a country. You feel safe all the time – even walking the streets late at night, which I can’t say about home. The people have beautiful spirits and contagious smiles. I loved Myanmar and so glad that I came now as I believe this country will change very quickly. Thank you for making the time counted.
