Yangon Arrival – Sightseeing

Day 01

Mingalarpar! Welcome to the land of golden pagodas, Myanmar!

A transfer is included from Yangon airport to your hotel.

Take the rest of the day for a visiting to Chautatkhgyi pagoda, famed for the biggest reclining Buddha statue in Myanmar. This pagoda is built in 1966 replacing the old image built in 1907 by Sir Hpo Thar. But it was suffered damage due to climate over the years. In 1957 it was demolished and rebuilt to this structure in 1966. It measures 65 meters and is housed in an iron structure with corrugated iron sheets roof of six layers. Followed by a pleasant walk in royal place where you will admire the magnificent gold Karaweik birds appear to float majestically on the serene Kandawgyi Lake, adjacent to serene parkland. The allure of it’s unique architectural beauty and representation of Myanmar culture has drawn curious and intrigued travellers and admirers from near and far for decades.

Your highlight of this day is the visit to 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.
