​Half Day Yangon City Tour
- Half Day
Start the tour at either 08:00 or 13:00 today. 

Embark on an insightful guided Yangon city tour exploring the highlights and some of the city’s lesser known sites.

Head to the heart of downtown where East meets West with a mix of pagodas, modern office buildings and historic landmarks. Walk around Sule Pagoda, City Hall, Independence Monument and some of the beautiful colonial buildings in the area.

Continue to a local tea shop for a chance to experience an integral part of Burmese life: drinking tea! Select from an array of snacks and enjoy a coffee or tea while sitting amid office workers, friends and families who gather at the tea shop to socialise or conduct business.

From here, continue to Shwedagon Pagoda, the most revered Buddhist temple in Myanmar. The 8-sided central stupa is 99 metres tall and gilded with gold leaf and is surrounded by 64 smaller stupas. Walk around the massive complex while the guide explains why local Buddhists revere this temple. Marvel at the breath-taking views of the golden stupa, wrapping up this fantastic introduction to Yangon.
