Yangon

The capital until 2006, Yangon (Rangoon) is Myanmar's largest city and its commercial center. It is truly developing, and full of juxtapositions: new high-rises abut traditional Southeast Asian shophouses while down the street from a frozen yogurt bar, a sidewalk dentist goes to work. Yangon's rich collection of colonial architecture is one of its biggest draws; The Strand and its surrounding side streets look today much as they did at the turn of the century, when Yangon—then Rangoon—was under British rule.

Yangon’s most iconic sight is unquestionably the enormous gilded Shwedagon Pagoda, but what makes it worth visiting beyond that is the rich, vibrant life that spills out of people’s homes and onto the streets. Colorful and chaotic, Yangon is a feast for the senses. Grinning uniformed schoolchildren and preadolescent monks vie for sidewalk space as vendors hawk fried goods and longyi-wearing businessmen go off to work. On a street of Indian-run paint shops sits the country’s only synagogue, a 19th-century relic; blocks away rise the steeples of St. Mary’s Cathedral, another reminder of the city’s colonial past.

Excursiones en Yangon

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.


Shwemawdaw Pagoda

The pagoda is one of the most venerated and impressive monuments in Southeast Asia, with origins dating back a thousand years. Severely damaged by earthquakes, the structure was rebuilt between 1952 and 1954 to its original glory. A soaring golden dome makes it the highest pagoda in Myanmar and one of its main attractions.


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


Local Village

A cheroot, once described as a "Burmese facial feature", is almost ubiquitous in this country. Even now that smoking is less popular in many parts of the world, the Myanmar don't seem to worry too much about that. Wheter the foot-long "whackin" white cheroots' that Kipling enthusiastically mentioned, or the short green, regular varities, they are everywhere - stacked in piles on the market, they are brought in big green bundles or singly, to be enjoyed one at a time



Shwethalyaung Buddha

After lunch, continue your sightseeing program with a visit to Bago'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.


At the end of the visit of the Pagoda, you will turn back to the bus and start your two-hour and a half drive back to Yangon.

Local traffic conditions can cause traffic jams and therefore delays in the driving time.

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.


An hour's drive brings you to Yangon where your panoramic city drive begins. Listen as your guide points out local landmarks and watch as the locals go about their daily life.


Arrive at The Strand Yangon, originally opened in 1901 and considered the only luxury hotel in Rangoon, Burma. With interiors of polished teak, rattan furniture, chandeliers and black-lacquered ceiling fans, The Strand is truly the elegant colonial splendor of a bygone era.

Cooking Experience with Myanmar Cuisine

See and taste Myanmar cuisine, from the market to home kitchen preparation, on this half-day exploration into the flavours of local Burmese cooking with lunch.


Myanmar's cuisine has been influenced by China, India, and Thailand. It is characterised by the extensive use of seafood in coastal cities, while meat and poultry are more commonly used in landlocked cities. Today you visit a typical market, see food being prepared in a family home, and then attend a chef's cooking demonstration where you sample the dishes afterwards.

Myanmar Traditional Kitchen

Re-board the coach and head to a village home, where you are invited to watch lunch being prepared for the family. The typical Myanmar kitchen serves as an important hub of the home, where women of the household discuss family matters and relate gossip gathered at the market. All this is done while pounding chili, crushing onion, and deboning and filleting fish.


Cooking Demonstration

Re-board the coach for a 60-minute drive that brings you to an open kitchen set in a lovely garden, the site of the cooking demonstration. Here, a Myanmar executive chef explains about the various food items that were selected from the market and are prepared as part of your lunch menu. Then, if you wish, try your hand at cooking some of the dishes or just watch as the chef prepares lunch.


Afterwards, relax and enjoy this specially-prepared meal. Curries, coconut and peas are just some of the featured items in your multi-dish lunch sampler. Soft drinks, green tea or a bottle of beer are offered to help quench your thirst.

General Aung San Museum

Learn more about the revolution in Burma and its infamous General Aung San on this half-day guided visit to the museum founded in his honour.


General Aung San was a Burmese revolutionary and founder of the modern Burmese army and is considered to be the father of modern day Myanmar. 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.


After the visit, you will proceed to the Generall Aung San Museum.



Generall Aung San Museum

The museum formally opened in March 2012 and focuses on the General's short adult life. The majority of the displays are located on the ground floor in the family, dining and living rooms. See photos of the General's youth, displays of his speeches, family photos and other personal mementos. The upper floors include the bedrooms and the library. Outside, there is a garden with a bronze statue of Aung San and the swimming pool.


Leaving the museum, head to the House of Memories Restaurant where refreshments are served. This 100-year-old colonial and historic Villa is categorised as a historical and national heritage property because the owner allowed the Burmese Independence Army (BIA) to open its Head Quarters during the fight for Independence.


Then, re-board the coach for the return drive to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires a moderate amount of walking with some stairs to climb. The museum has 3 storeys and no elevator. Guests with limited mobility may elect to limit their tour of the museum to the ground floor. This tour is not suitable for guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are not allowed to take cameras and cell phones into the buildings and museums. Shoes must be removed while visiting the upper lever of the museum.

Kalaywa Monastery

The Kalawan Monastery is a holy learning centre perched on the second-highest hill in Yangon. The monks here spend their lives studying and practising the teachings of Buddha, but before doing so they must undergo a Novitiation, or 'Shin-Pyu' ceremony. This important event reflects Buddha's own journey, as he renounced his life as a prince in his search for enlightenment.


Novitiation Ceremony

Watching the ceremony, notice that the young boys, or novices, are dressed in glittering clothes and make-up to look like princes. Followed by their families and friends, the novices are lead in a long procession around the monastery, and accompanied by an orchestra, traditional dancers and folk music.
