So, you’ve decided to come to Myanmar. Excellent choice. The country holds the distinction as one of if not the least visited country in Southeast Asia. That certainly makes for an authentic experience. And it doesn’t get as authentic as a local experience in Yangon. If you want to truly experience things the Burmese way, we highly recommend setting aside a half day in the city and explore its streets, markets and small villages. Interact with the locals and find out more about their daily routines in life.

Yes, Yangon is the country’s largest city. But it is not the capital. It was so, until 2006 when it moved to Naypyidaw. But it is still the country’s main economic and commercial hub. And a great starting point for your Burmese introduction.

Begin your orientation of the city and its people with a transfer to Khaing Dan Jetty by traditional blue truck taxis, small vehicles used to transport people and goods around the city. Check out the city’s vibrant life from here while you ride like none other than the locals themselves.

And it doesn’t stop there. The vibrant nature of this Burmese day trip tour takes you to the always lively Chinatown. Explore the temple and check out the vibrant street life as well as the colorful and interesting culture that call this area home.

But there’s more to Yangon than just the city. Hop in a taxi and discover its rural and urban atmosphere. Take the short trip to Insein and visit its market; a gathering of colorful vendors and shopkeepers. Say good-bye to the friendly locals here as you head to Insein Railway station to catch the circular train ride to Bogoyoke Market. This mode of transportation is a great way for you to absorb the local flavor. Not only will you integrate yourself with the people coming in and out of the train, you’ll also be presented with good views of the landscapes, small villages and traditional markets. See what’s in store inside the colonial structure’s stalls and again experience the lively market atmosphere Yangon style.
