Yangon, the largest city in Myanmar and the former capital city, seduces tourists with its vibrant and cultural beauty. Let's find out the uniqueness of this city on one of our Yangon Tour Packages!

Visit pagodas

One of the must-see destinations is the pagodas with the specialty of yellow color and Pyatthat multi-tiered roof. Shwedagon, the Botataung, and the Sule are believed to be built during the Buddhist's lifetime, which means 2,500 years ago, and they are the oldest pagodas in Myanmar. Therefore, tourists should not miss the chance to discover all the highlight destinations, and booking tours in Yangon can be a great option here.

According to the legend, the Buddha gave two Burmese brothers eight of His hair and told them to enshrine relics on Singuttara Hill, where Shwedagon is built. Next, Botataung attracts tourists through the architecture of hollow stupas, mosaic glass walls, old Buddha images, and gold ceilings. The name of these pagodas is from an event that happened 2,000 years ago, in which the first hair of Buddha was escorted by thousands of military from India to here. Therefore, Botataung is known as one of the 1,000 military leaders. The sule pagoda is located in the center of Yangon, and it is surrounded by markets, busy streets, and some high-rise buildings. The pagoda also enshrines a hair relic of the Buddha, so it is respected, and many Burmese come here to make merit and prayer offerings while enjoying the Yangon Private Tours.

Explore circular train

The tourists have a chance to experience authentic local life and admire the beauty of towns and suburban areas (Little India and Chinatown) while sitting on the train, traveling, and touring Yangon. Then, take time to stroll around the city and try local coffee. During that time, the night market is also a good choice for you to buy gold jewelry, clothing, fruit, and books or explore the beauty of the local Burmese market at night. 

Try the specialties

While you explore during the trip to Yangon, food is an essential factor and cultural feature to discover. Tea leaves salad is a unique dish including the ingredients of tomatoes, cabbage, bean sprouts, and some spices. The Burmese often eat it as an appetizer. Bein Mont is made of coconut and sticky rice and then fried until the eye-catching bright color shows. For the traditional dessert, Mont Lone Yay Paw is an excellent choice for eaters, especially during the Thingyan Festival. The cook uses glutinous rice flour covered with palm sugar and grated coconut.

Attending the cooking class

When registering for the cooking lesson, you will learn how to cook traditional dishes with a professional chef, from preparation to complement. Then try it on your own with tea or coffee for lunch. We ensure that tourists can cook these dishes for their loved ones after Yangon travel.
