After exploring the main sights and sounds of the city, Yangon is now forever etched in your heart. Fitting, isn’t it? There is really only one place for this charming city. You can also see what else is around Yangon and add a bit of excitement and adventure while you’re at it. Yes, we’re talking about a bike excursion. And this is your best chance of interacting with the ever so smiling faces of the Burmese at their humble villages in the countryside.
First the sites, now the people. What better way to compliment your Yangon site seeing experience than with a ride out in the countryside? And what better way to accomplish this than with the old trusted bike? Good for the body, even better for the environment. Can’t go wrong there.
Stretch those arms and legs this morning and breathe in the relaxing Yangon morning air. Your knowledgeable guide will come and meet you after your hearty breakfast and transfer you to the outskirts of town at what is referred to as ‘Wireless Junction’.
Ok. Let’s get to it! Grab your bike and pedal through the quiet and peaceful streets of rural Yangon. Just a warning, you’ll be cycling for about 25 kilometers today. That shouldn’t be too harsh on you, right? And to make things easier on the body, the roads are flat and traffic is minimal. Yes, this is a leisurely experience. On your bike travel, you’ll pass quaint traditional villages where friendly locals will wave at you and be happy to have a chat. Photo opportunities are also aplenty. After all, we did just warn you about the leisure pace. It is only fitting, considering the laid back atmosphere of the Burmese countryside.
After the ride, you’ll stop for a cup of tea or coffee at a local tea house. This activity is an integral part of a typical Burmese’s life. Sitting in the shop will be yet another chance for you to interact with the locals and enjoy the pure Burmese atmosphere.
