Details Itinerary

 

Shwedagon Pagoda
This world-renowned pagoda towers over the city of Yangon, and can be seen for miles around. Widely considered one of the world's wonders, Shwedagon is thought to have been constructed more than 2,500 years ago. Since that time it has been rebuilt a number of times, and it is likely that the stupa dates from 1796. Thousands of devotees visit the pagoda each day to perform religious rites to make merit.

Botataung Pagoda
The Botataung Pagoda is a famous pagoda located in downtown Yangon, Myanmar, near the Yangon river. The pagoda was first built by the Mon around the same time as was Shwedagon Pagoda-ccording to local belief, over 2500 years ago, and was known as Kyaik-de-att in Mon language. The pagoda is hollow within, and houses what is believed to be a sacred hair of Gautama Buddha. The Botataung Pagoda was completely destroyed during World War II, and was rebuilt after the war.

Sule Pagoda
Located at the heart of Yangon, the Sule Pagoda is reportedly more than 2,000 years old. Until around 200 years ago, the pagoda was encircled by water. The Mon name for the pagoda is Kyaik Athok, which means ‘the temple where a sacred hair relic is enshrined', and it is believed that a hair from the Buddha is enshrined here. The pagoda stands at over 150ft tall. Although tours are not permitted, the architecture alone makes this site popular with photographers.

Chauk Htat Kyee Buddha
This reclining Buddha image, originally built in 1907, was eroded by weather conditions over the years, and rebuilt in 1966. It remains the largest Buddha image in the country. Other similar images, although smaller, are the Ngar Htat Kyee Buddha and the Koe Htat Kyee Buddha.

Kandawgyi Lake
This lake is not far from the city centre, and the park grounds around the lake are perfect for taking a stroll or having a picnic. There's a trail following the edge of the lake, where many people can be found at sunset when the shimmering reflection of the Shwedagon Pagoda is enhanced by the spectacular colours of the sky as the sun goes down.
Bogyoke Market(Scott Market)
Bogyoke Aung San Market is situated in the heart of Yangon - on Bogyoke Aung San Road. There are 1800 shops selling luxury items, handicrafts, foodstuffs, clothing, jewellery, fashion and consumer goods. Bogyoke Market was first built and inaugurated on the present premises in 1926. Also known as Scott Market, it is a must see destination on every tourist’s itinerary. The market is open from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm except Mondays and Gazette holidays.

Thanlyin near Yangon
Thanlyin is a major port city of Myanmar, located across Bago River from the city of Yangon. Thanlyin Township comprises 17 quarters and 28 village tracts. It is home to the largest port in the country, Thilawa port. Thanlyin or Syriam is a town dating from the British colonial period that was built as a petroleum refining centre. Around a 1 hour drive from Yangon, this town has been a major port since the 14th century. In 1755 it was replaced by Yangon in importance, until the British focussed their efforts on Syriam and enhanced its status once again. Highlights for visitors here are the tombs of two famous 16th century Burmese poets, a Portuguese church from the 18th century and the 19th century Sacred Heart Church.
