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 Sightseeing

For the first day in the peaceful capital, an opening city tour will be the best selection for you. We will start at the Strand Road and experience the life of the people along the Yangon River. Afterward, walk in the Pansoedan Street with solemn French colonial buildings which stores a part of the Burmese history. Leave the streets, we explore the pagodas and temples, and the first is the Sule Pagoda - a gold-covered stupa located at the center of the downtown Yangon then move to the City Hall – a prominent French colonial building of the capital.

Closing the morning with Mahabandola Garden – the perfect place for relaxing in the morning with grass field and flowers.
In the afternoon, continue exploring the other slices of the life in the capital by visiting the Bogyoke market where you can find anything in Myanmar, from common product like clothing foods to luxurious goods like gem, jewelry and souvenirs. To complete the city tour, enjoying the sunset view from the Shwedagon Pagoda – a golden pagoda of the capital – is seemed to be the best ending for the day.

Yagon - Bagan

Leave Yangon, we will fly to Bagan - the plain of the temples and stupas. With the quantity of more than 2000(exactly 2200), one day is not enough to visit the entire temples and stupas here but enough for experiencing the best and most essential of the area. Begin with Shwesigon Pagoda – a 12th century stupa with typical style. Then we will take a temple visit with many stupas like Htilomilo temple – a 13th century temple with the name of the king at the time and sophisticated carvings, Anada Temple – with four golden Buddha toward the four directions, Anada Okkyaung - a brick monastery with 18th century mural paintings.In the afternoon, after being full with delicious lunch, we will continue the journey with Manuha Temple – one of the oldest temple of Bagan erected in the 11th century, Nan Phaya Temple – a Hindu temple with intricate carvings of Brahma. Completing the day with the sunset of the Bagan’s solemn ancient monument.

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 – Mt Popa

Today we will move to the South to visit the volcanic Popa Mountain. This mountain, in the history and myth, has been considered as the abode of Nats – the most powerful spirit of Burmese. With 1518 meters in height, this mountain is the great choice for anyone like hiking. At the top of Popa are monasteries and pagodas where the pilgrims usually come to pray and join the festival. Before passing through the palm trees and coming back, remembering taking some photos from the top of the mountain where you can enjoy the whole view of the area.
Accommodation: Hotel in Bagan

Bagan – Mandalay

Mandalay will be our heading point today. Mandalay is the second largest and the last royal city of the country. We will reach here in the morning then visit Amarapura – a former capital of Myanmar and a beautiful township nowadays, Mahargandaryone Monastery – meet and experience the life of the monks. Afterward, move to the South and visit Sagaing – a 15th century ancient city with numerous monasteries, Kaungmutaw Pagoda – a white egg-shaped design temple located in the northwestern of Sagaing, Ywadaung village – a traditional village with silver wears and spectacular Sagaing Hill. Close the day with the sunset on 1.2 - Km - long U-Pein wooden bridge before coming back to Mandalay.

The trishaw was invented in 1930 in Mandalay and became the most popular form of public transportation. Burmese trishaws are unique in that they have two passenger seats on one side of the paddler and are the ideal vehicle for travelling along the narrow laneways of Burmese towns.

Mandalay – Mingun

A boat trip will take us to Mingun – a town on the opposite bank of Ayeyarwaddy River. Mingun Pagoda will be the first place today. Mingun Pagoda, actually, is an uncompleted monument with a giant bell inside and marble footprint of Buddha. In the afternoon, you will explore the bamboo mat weaving village and experience the life of the locals before visit a series of temples and pagoda such as Mahamuni Pagoda – with numerous gold-covered Buddha statues, Shwe Kyaung Monastery – a 20th century important monastery with the other name as "Golden Palace", Atumashi Monastery – a late 19th century monastery built by King Mindon, Kuthotaw Pagoda – also a 19th century pagoda with marble inscriptions, white stupas and shrines. End the day on the Mandalay Hills and enjoy the sunset.

Mandalay – Yagon – Kyaikhtiyo

Early Breakfast at hotel and then transfer to Mandalay Airport then take flight to Yangon. As soon as arrive Yangon and then, we will drive to Kin Pun, 194 km from Yangon and visit the famous Kyaikhtiyo Temple, also known as the Golden Rock, a temple standing on a huge golden boulder on the edge of a cliff. From the edge, you can see the whole view of Kin Pun with green cliff. Inside the temple, there is an ethereal place where you can make donation and pray. Before leaving, enjoying the sunset from the edge.

Kyaikhtiyo – Bago - Yagon

In the morning, we will move to Bago, 110 km from Golden Rock and visit the one thousand - year-old Shwemawdaw Pagoda - the tallest pagoda of Myanmar, even higher than Golden Pagoda. Inside the pagoda is the Shwe Thalyaung Buddha image - a 55meter long lying Buddha statue with unique style. Then we drive back to Yangon and stay overnight there.

I would thoroughly recommend this trip in a fascinating country. The tour is comprehensive, with excellent accommodation, inclusions and is varied. One of the best I have done. I hooked it up with ATA’s Cambodia tour which really complimented it well. See you next time in Thailand, ATA.

Amazing Myanmar trip
Reviewed On: Oct 03, 2019AntonioBrazil

We recently came back from a 9 day trip to Myanmar with ATA. Even though the trip was very last minute and rushed, our trip was efficiently and thoughtfully planned by Hong. We had the best time ever in Yangon, Bagan and Mandalay. They are all excellent and we couldn’t ask for more. ATA gave us more than a tour, shared amazing stories about the places we visited which I cannot find in the guidebooks. And I can’t say enough about personal service of this private tour. It was on time, engaged, comfortable and open to our questions and interests.

Absolute Amazing Organisation Of Our Myanmar Travel
Reviewed On: May 25, 2019Rui Pedro Gomes dos SantosSwitzerland

From my first contact with Ms Xuan, I got a very good feeling to be in excellent professional travelling hand, even her Office is in Hanoi and we wanted to have a good travel help for Myanmar. As well experienced traveller we could only accept very good care. All our wishes were foreseen in the original travel program and Xuan also told her honest fair opinion when she meant our proposal would be not so good..so we were able to work out together best possible program. The choosen Hotels were absolute fantastic and all the guides and drivers did very good job.
The Price for the travel 9 dys Yangon-Bagan-Inle-Lake-Yangon and transfer to Ngwe Saung Beach was real worth the money. Everything on our travel was perfectly organized and the only time we had problem when we were stuck in traffic jam from Patthein to Yangon, dear Xuan was also reachable even it was Sunday (and out of her working time) and gave us the necessary help. Really nothing to complain only can suggest fully and I hope another time can let organize a trip thorough Vietnam
Thanks very much for all the fantastic program.
