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.

Yangon - Bagan

This morning awake early for a sunrise flight over the plains of Bagan. Drift past ancient temples in the serene morning air and enjoy the views on your one hour flight. Continue exploring the temples on land with a picnic lunch at a quiet temple before setting off on a boat cruise along the Irrawaddy River for yet another perspective of the temples. Dine by candlelight this evening where your dinner is accompanied by a traditional dance performance.

The ancient city of Bagan was the capital of the Kingdom of Pagan from the 9th to 13th centuries and built over 10,000 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries on the Bagan plains alone. Today around 2,200 of the original temples and pagodas remaining standing.

Bagan (Balloon Over Bagan)

Bagan - Heho - Pindaya

An early morning flight will take you to Heho in the Shan State before driving to Pindaya - a peaceful town located on the banks of the Botoloke Lake. Enjoy the fresh air of the lake as well as the poetic sightseeing.

At an altitude of 880 metres (2,900 feet) the freshwater lake of Inle is not only one of the highest lakes in the country but is one of the biggest. The lake is home to the Intha people who have lived, worked and survived off the lake for generations. They live in wooden and woven bamboo stilt houses surrounded by floating gardens. Inle’s constant source of moisture and its climate permits the Inthas to grow crops throughout the year. The most distinctive part of the Intha culture is the unique way they row their small wooden boats using their legs.

In the morning, we will have a great chance to enjoy the whole view of Pindaya and its spectacular Shan hills from a colorful balloon. Then, we will discover the mystic Shwe U Min Cave with thousands of Buddha images. In the afternoon, having lunch before heading to the town of Nyaung Shwe. Upon arrival, you can hire a motorboat and travel to the hotel on the Inle Lake. On the way, you can see and experience the life of the lake with stilted villages, floating gardens and the unique leg-rower.

Inle - In Dein - Inle

After breakfast, a balloon will help you enjoy the whole view of the great Inle Lake - the second largest lake of Myanmar - and the surrounding sightseeing. Afterward, we will fly down and visit a bustling and colorful floating morning market, buy your ingredients for your dishes. Then, with your ingredients, we will visit an Inthar house and experience the local cuisine by cooking and having lunch with the family. After lunch, continue to In Dein, a peaceful small village on the western bank of the lake and enjoy the poetic views of the site. Stay overnight at the Inle

Inle – Heho - Yangon

Early morning transfer from Heho Airport for your departure flight to Yangon. Get ready for your city tour today. We will discover the most interesting places in Yangon.
After breakfast, we will begin our journey by visiting the National Museum – a giant collection of cultural, historical… of Burma from 1952. Then we will peek into the 2500-year-old Sule Pagoda located at the centre of Yangon. With the blending of Indian and Burmese style, this pagoda is one of the must-visit places of the capital.

In the afternoon, we will continue the city tour by walking around the Mahabandoola Park near the Sule Pagoda and having lunch. Afterward, discover another part of Yangon with the crowd and bustling atmosphere of the Bogyoke Market where you can find anything you want from foods, clothing to souvenir, jewelry or even a black market for money exchanging. Complete the day in the famous Shwedagon pagoda, also known as the Golden Pagoda - the must-see pagoda in Myanmar.

Real experience of Myanmar
Reviewed On: Oct 03, 2019Neil RobertUnited Kingdom

“We did a 9 days tour with Asia Tour Advisor and I would simply mention that their service is beyond expectation.
On the site, we visited 3 cities Yangon, Bagan and Inle Lake. At each place, we not only toured the key sites but also go off road to see villages and some traditional work. Hotels selection was very good, the rooms were very nice. We would always recommend this agency for any one who plan to visit the beautiful country of Myanmar.

We have just returned from a customize tout organise by Asia Tour Advisor. From the time we landed in Yangon until our departure 9 days later we could not have been looked after any better or experienced as many wow moments. We traveled in Yangon & Bagan. The transfers were seamless and we were always met by enthusiastic and informative guides from them. These guides provided us with a wonderful insight into the culture, the many attractions across Myanmar and more importantly the local people. The accommodation and dining experiences arranged by Asia Tour Advisor were first class.
The four of us have had undertaken many overseas trip and tours throughout Europe, Americas and Asia separately and together, and all agreed this would would have to rate as one of the top three.
Well done and thanks your team alot.

Reviewed On: Dec 06, 2018SullivanMalaysia

A very well organised tour. I have been to many similar sites in Asia. In most of them the religious statues are rather cheap, tacky and vulgar and detract rather than add to the natural beauty of the cave. This was not the case here. The cave had a genuinely spiritual feel and had an integrity derived from its importance to the local people. Go now before important sites like Bagan are completely overrun and access is limited. Excellent value for money!
