Yangon Arrival – Sightseeing

Day 01

Welcome to golden land,
Upon arrival, Myanmar tour guide will meet you at airport after your easy visa procedure. Spend about 45 minutes on car, we will reach to Yangon city Center.

The city’s historical colonial and religious influences have survived despite its status as a rising Southeast Asian city, making for a truly unique experience.

Walk through downtown a diverse mix of faded colonial architectures from the British times, and high-rises built by more recent investors.

Then, we will visit Sule Pagoda – a religious and historic site, built in the early 3rd century which located in the heart of downtown Yangon.

Late afternoon, visit the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda of Rudyard Kipling fame and one of Myanmar’s most sacred places. The massive bell shaped stupa is plated with gold and the tip of the stupa is set with diamonds and rubies, sapphires and topaz – a stunning sight as the sun sets and a most fitting place to begin our trip in this “Golden Land”.

Enjoy a very nice welcome dinner with Burmese cuisine at a local restaurant.
