Yangon Guided City Tour
Meet your local tour guide at 8 am by the Independence Monument in Maha Bandula Park, in the heart of Yangon, the former capital of Myanmar. From there, you'll head to the central station to hop on board the slow train that circles the entire city, one of the best ways to discover Yangon.
Make a stop at Da Nyin Gone, where the railway tracks double as a marketplace. Immerse yourself in the lively buzz of the market, a great introduction to daily life in Myanmar. You'll spend around 45 minutes exploring the market and discovering the different food stalls selling all manner of fresh fruit, vegetables and exotic products, while your guide reveals fascinating facts about local culture and traditions. You'll also have the opportunity to enjoy a delicious tea or coffee in a nearby cafe.
You'll then hop back on the train to continue the journey around this magical city, finally reaching the historic centre of Yangon. Arriving at Pazundaung station, you'll make your way to a local restaurant, where you'll be treated to a mouth-watering meal of typical Burmese delicacies. Hope you're hungry!
Following this well-earned break, you'll embark on a guided tour of the main streets of Yangon, discovering the city's most emblematic monuments from the colonial era, passing by spiritual Buddhist spots and watching the locals go about their daily lives. You'll also visit Chinatown and Little India, two of Yangon's lively neighbourhoods with their own unique architecture and culture.
The final stop on your comprehensive guided tour of Yangon will be at St Mary's Cathedral, where you'll admire the impressive red brick Gothic Revival façade, strikingly different from the other churches found around the city.
