Art Galleries of Yangon
- Half Day
Your guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel for a short drive to downtown Yangon where a range of local art galleries are located. We will visit at least three galleries but please note that the itinerary may vary depending on the opening hours, current exhibits of the galleries and personal interests of the clients.

Begin with lunch at LinkAge, a quaint non-profit restaurant and gallery which teaches street kids hospitality and life skills.
(Note: LinkAge is closed on Sundays).

After enjoying your Lunch, we will go to Pansodan Arts to view works of art covering traditional period up to modern, abstract styles. The knowledgeable curator will show you upstairs to the store room where hundreds of paintings are tucked away, including war-time propaganda, neo-classical works created as European influences began to reach Myanmar and classic line drawings and photographs. Before leaving downtown we’ll visit the newest addition to Yangon’s arts scene, Sule Eain. Located adjacent to Sule Paya, this loft-style space features rotating exhibitions of contemporary painters.

Next visit River Gallery, located in a small heritage building on 38th Street, which aims to bring Myanmar art to a wider audience. River Gallery showcases the city’s widest range of contemporary art, representing more than 30 artists at any given time. Next we’ll visit Lawkanat Gallery, a non-profit gallery that features a small collection of traditional works as well as rotating exhibits of current Burmese artists. Today your tour ends up in the area of Yangon known as ‘Golden Valley’ at New Treasure Gallery. This art gallery was established by Min Wai Aung, a Burmese artist famous for his paintings of monks. He is possibly one of Burma’s best known artists and captures much of the essence of the country with its spiritual and traditional dimensions.
