This Yangon day tour lets you see it all in just one day! Start off your experience by going beyond the city centre to see a real cross-section of life in Yangon. We’ll hop on the slow train and observe the lively and colourful happenings of the local urban lifestyle.
We’ll be experiencing the entire three-hour loop with a pit stop to visit a lively local market. We’ll spend about 45 minutes wandering through the stalls, meeting vendors, and observing the local way of life.
Our Yangon tour will continue as we get back on the train and head towards downtown, where we’ll enjoy lunch at one of the local restaurants and participate in a favourite local pastime: people-watching!
After lunch, we’ll hit the road, walking along the busy streets lined with shops, as well as vendors selling everything from betel nuts to Burmese buns.
Then, we’ll head over to the market district, just as it starts to come alive at sunset. First up, we’ll wander through the chaos of Shwe Bontha Street, crammed with locals selling secondhand (and third- and fourth-hand) items — anything and everything from electronics to footwear (shopaholics, you’ve been warned).
But if all the excitement of the market leaves you seeking serenity, you’ll get your dose of Zen as you pass by both Buddhist and Hindu temples on the way toward China Town. Here you’ll stop for a refreshing drink and snack — maybe a green tea at a local tea shop or a freshly squeezed sugarcane juice at a roadside stall. Wherever your thirst guides you! Snap some photos at a nearby temple that’s adorned with hundreds of images depicting mythological scenes.
While this busy area is a shopping hotspot when evening comes, it’s still off the radar for most visitors. With blocks of little boutiques and antique shops tucked down alleyways, you could easily refurbish your house and obtain an entirely new wardrobe in one day (getting those purchases home in your luggage is another matter).
Finally, we’ll end up on a small side street is filled vendor after vendor boasting charcoal grills, cooking up all sorts of meats, veggies, and marinades. This is the place to go for street food in Yangon, with lots of outdoor seating, bustling local life, and plenty of beer. Your guide will treat you to some of their favourite snacks and a beer to finish off this unique exploration of Yangon. Highlights
