Discover the diverse and historic city of Yangon as you visit its glittering pagodas, pace around its colourful local markets, enjoy a traditional Burmese lunch and ride the Yangon Circular Railway on this full-day tour.
Begin your tour with hotel pick-up in Yangon and ride through the city's busy streets, taking in views of stunning temples, markets and colonial buildings. Stop for tea before making your way to see the splendid Sule Pagoda, an octagonal Burmese stupa located in the centre of Yangon.
Next, stroll along a vibrant local market to experience Burmese culture before you stop for refreshments at the Victorian-style Strand Hotel. Then visit the Kyaukhtatgyi Pagoda, a 230-foot (70 m) long reclining Buddha and wonder at its many colours. While here, check out the soles of the pagoda's feet, which have been decorated with 108 auspicious carvings of the image of Buddha.
Then enjoy a tasty lunch at local restaurant where meals like Kachin and Rakine are served in a clean and relaxing atmosphere. Afterword, hop aboard the Yangon circular train as you witness the true essence of the city's life through the windows. Exit the train station at Bogyoke Aung San Market, Yangon's best market for handicrafts. Browse through the dozens of shops for some mementos before your transfer takes you back to your hotel.
