Glorious temples, monuments and pagodas glint in the sunshine of Yangon, rising from a sea of lush greenery. Although it’s no longer Myanmar’s capital - since 2006 - the city remains the country’s largest and most culturally alluring. Having fallen under British control, it is littered with colonial architecture, in amongst the chaotic and colour-stacked streets. View more

The day starts early here - with tea in one of the many inviting tea shops, fit in like a local by sipping a laphet yay – Burmese tea of black tea, and condensed milk. Explore the bustling streets, which are alive with energy, before heading to Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon’s best-known sight, and a glorious golden wonder arising from a sea of palm trees. The Buddhist pagoda is almost 100 metres tall and its glinting dome is crusted with a dazzling display of 5,000 diamonds and 2,000 rubies. Locals claim it was built 2,600 years ago – which would make it the oldest pagoda in the world, but scientists date it to the 6th century. Regardless of the true age, it’s an unforgettable sight, and an astonishing golden vision. One way to throw yourself into the deep end of authentic Yangon life is by jumping aboard the Yangon Circular train – which was built by the British in 1954. The rickety train takes you on a three-hour round tour of the city, offering a real insight into local life, as you travel amongst kind-hearted locals. See merchants coming aboard to sell vegetable, eggs and jewellery, as the city rolls past the windows. Escape the bustle at Inya Lake, which offers a little tranquillity, with paths for strolling amid the palm trees, floral displays and ferris wheel.

Bago - Mon Kingdom Capital

Meet your guide on the pier and board the coach for the drive northeast of Yangon to the port city of Bago, a storehouse of Burmese culture. The city was established in 1369 by King Byinnya and experienced its Golden Age between 1385 and 1635. When the Pegu River changed its course, the city was cut off from the sea and gradually lost its importance. The Mon Kingdom was powerful in Myanmar from the 9th to the 11th and from the 13th to the 16th century and for a brief period in the mid-18th century.


During your two-hour and a half drive to Bago, the coach stops to allow you to stretch your legs and take in some noted sights.


Local Market

About one hour from Yangon, a stop will be made at morning local Market for a glimpse at local life and activities before another one-hour drive brings you to Bago.


Continue your journey and arrive in Bago. The following sites are pointed out or explored with your guide


World War II Cemetery

Htaukkyant World War II Cemetery, also called the British War Cemetery, is one of the biggest cemeteries in Myanmar. Located in the town of Bago, it has the graves of some 27,000 Allied troops killed in the World War II campaign in Burma.


In the Htaukkyant World War II Cemetery is Today the Imperial War Graves Commission maintains the grounds. The neatness of the manicured grass and well-planted flowering shrubs seems to set the cemetery apart from the rest of Myanmar. It is a place for contemplation, to discover silence and solitude.


Venture into southern Myanmar to explore the once capital of the Mon Kingdom, Pegu, now Bago, on this full-day excursion, with lunch of local fare.


Kyakhatwine Monastery

Next, a special visit to the Kyakhatwine Monastery has been arranged on your behalf. This is southern Myanmar's largest abbey and is a sight to behold. Here, you are invited to observe the resident monks partake of their final meal of the day in total silence.


Kanbawzathadi Palace

The original site of Hanthawady, which surrounded a former Mon place, was excavated just south of the huge shwemawdaw Paya in Myanmar Bago. Walled in the Mon style, the square city measured 1.8 km along each side and has 20 gates. The palace compound in the centre, known as Kanbawzathadi, housed Myanmar King Bayinnaung from 1553 to 1599 and covered 82 hectares. About 26 hectares of this area have been excavated. The small, well stocked, octagon shaped museum displays Mon, Siamese and Myanmar Bagan style buddhas; clay tobacco pipes; glazed tiles and pots; bronze weights and scales; pieces of the original teak stockade; and weaponry.


Take a break from sightseeing and enjoy Asian cuisine at a Local Restaurant.


Shwethalyaung Buddha

After lunch, continue your sightseeing program with a visit to Bag o's most famous site - the huge reclining Buddha. At 165 feet (50 metres) long and 48 feet (14.6 metres) high, it is reputed to be the largest as well as the most lifelike of all reclining Buddhas.

Originally built in 994 AD, it deteriorated and was lost in a jungle overgrowth. Only in the 1880s British era were the remains rediscovered during the construction of the railway line. Restoration began in 1881 and today a sturdy iron shed houses the colossal image. The walkway up to the viewing platform is crowded with souvenir and handicraft stalls.


Kyaik Pun Pagoda

Standing on Bago's outskirts is this 15th-century structure with huge Buddha images on each one of the four pagoda sides. A short walk from the coach allows for a closer look and a better photo opportunity.


Local Village

Next, head to a small village. Here, some free time is made to stroll the village's shaded streets, chat with friendly residents and observe the local village life.

City Sights by Omnibus & High Tea at The Strand Yangon

Take in the local sights of Yangon aboard an original Omnibus and savour High Tea on this afternoon half-day 'step back-in-time' tour.


Come ashore and meet your guide before climbing aboard a completely refurbished 1940s Omnibus. Originally brought to Myanmar during the Second World War as military service transport, these vehicles were rebuilt by Myanmar carpenters for public transportation use after the war. Today, three of them are still preserved with teak walls, curtains and upholstered chairs.

He was responsible for Burma's independence from British colonial rule. He was assassinated six months before independence. Many mysteries still surround his assassination.


Depart the pier for the 75-minute drive to the colonial Secretariat office, where General San and six cabinet ministers were assassinated there during the meeting


The Minister's Building Secretariat office

The Secretariat holds a unique place in Myanmar's history, being the location for some of the most important moments in its colonial, independence and post-independence history. Fully completed in 1905, The Secretariat was the centre of British colonial administration in Burma, and was the pre-eminent structure associated with the government during this period. The building was also the place where Myanmar's first steps towards independence happened. The diarchy (Legislative Council) was established at The Secretariat in 1923, giving Burma a limited measure of self-rule. It was the location where Burma formally separated from India in 1937, and where the largest anti-colonial student demonstration at the time occurred in 1938.


After the Second World War, independence negotiations began, and by 1947 an agreement had been reached with the then independence leader, General Aung San. On 19 July 1947, however, Aung San and eight other cabinet members were assassinated in the west range of The Secretariat, a murder that has since been commemorated every year on 'Martyrs' Day'. Independence from Britain was finally marked in the quadrangle of The Secretariat complex's main courtyard in 1948, a key event in Burmese and British history. It continued to be the centre of post-independence governmental administration until the capital was relocated from Yangon to Naypyidaw in 2005.

Traditional Burmese puppet shows have 28 main characters ranging from gods, animals, monsters and royals. Puppets are carved from wood, and polished before sanded and painted with various natural cements. Each puppet is usually made from 17-19 pieces of wood, and moved by 11 strings.

Thus, when designing and shaping the characters, the master focused on the puppet's soul and liveness instead of the outside appearance.
