Walking tour of Yangon

This morning you'll enjoy a flexible tour of Yangon with your driver and guide. You may wish to start with a stroll around the Maha Wizaya Paya or Kandawgyi Lake. Continue into town and enjoy walking through old Rangoon and the various districts of Chinatown and Little India nestled among crumbling colonial architecture. The highlight of your tour will most certainly be a visit to the Shwedagon Pagoda, the jewel in the city's crown.

Please note that entrance fees to museums and sites (with the exception of the Shwedagon Pagoda) are not included in this excursion as you may wish to decide for yourselves on the day which places you would like to visit. The National Museum in Yangon is closed on Mondays, Tuesday and public holidays. Most of the museums in Myanmar are state-run with entrance fees going directly to the authorities rather than the upkeep of these institutions. For this reason we do not proactively recommend visiting them.
