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.

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.

About Burmese Puppets and Puppet Shows

Mr. Htwe says, "Although I'm sure it originated from over 600 years of ancient culture; we have discovered that wooden puppets were a major form of entertainment for Burmese royals ever since the 15th century." 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. Due to their strong spiritual roots in Myanmar, some locals believe that puppets have spirits. Thus, when designing and shaping the characters, the master focused on the puppet's soul and liveness instead of the outside appearance.

Follow your guide up the escalator to the temple on to up level. During a walking tour of approximately one hour you will learn about the history and significance of this impressive complex.


Chaukhtat Gyi Pagoda

See the enormous statue of a reclining Buddha almost as large as the one in Bago. The image is housed in a large metal-roofed shed a short distance from the Shwedagon Pagoda. It is not as famous as the Bago statue, but for those not going to Bago, the colossal Chaukhtatgyi should not be missed.


Maha Bandoola Park

Now admire a monument of a different kind with a visit to Maha Bandoola Park. In the center of the park stands the 150-foot (45 metres) Independence Monument. Honoring a Burmese general of the first Anglo-Burmese War, the obelisk is surrounded by five pillars, representing the harmony of Burma with its five former semi-autonomous states.


Lunch at the Strand

Enjoy a set menu of excellent Myanmar cuisine, for which the Strand is renowned in the city. The hotel was constructed by the Sarkies brothers of Raffles and Oriental fame in 1896 and became one of the fabulous outposts in the British empire. During World War II, the hotel was closed and later nationalized. In the 1990s, an extensive renovation project by a Dutch-Indonesian consortium restored the grand dame to her original splendor and spirit. Lunch at the Strand will be among the highlights of your tour.


National Museum

After lunch, proceed to the nearby National Museum, housed in the former Bank of India building. Many exhibits feature memorabilia of the last two kings of Burma. Some of the items are richly decorated with rubies, diamonds and other precious stones. The pride of the museum is the 24-foot-tall (7 metres) gilded Lion Throne from the royal palace at Mandalay. The museum also contains a collection of statues, carvings, Buddha images, paintings, costumes and crafts.


Bogyoke Market

Sometimes called by its British name, Scott Market, the 70-year-old market has the largest selection of Burmese handicrafts found under one roof. Time is allowed for browsing in this fascinating market.

Yangon walking tour and Free time in Scott Market

Explore the legacy of Yangon through its abundant historic landmarks during this scenic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Downtown Yangon and Historic Landmarks

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 60-90-minute drive to Yangon, a city filled with ancient palaces, golden pagodas and the largest number of Colonial buildings in Southeast Asia. Upon arrival in Downtown Yangon, begin your guided walking tour. Pass by historic landmarks that include the Inland Water Transport Building, Secretariat Building, The Strand Hotel, massive Yangon High Court Building (outside visit) and more.


Bogyoke Aung San Market

Next, re-board your coach and proceed to the Bogyoke Aung San Market. Formerly known as the 'Scott Market', the Bogyoke Aung San Market is a sprawling,70-year-old market featuring more than 2,000 stalls, and the largest selection of Myanmar handicrafts in a single location. Some free time is made available to browse the stalls and haggle alongside local shoppers for souvenirs, lacquerware, puppets, woodcarvings, clothing, fabrics, artwork, jewellery, and Burmese jade, rubies and other precious stones.
