In this tour, we will start the first day in Yangon and visit the downtown area, such as the City Hall, Sule Pagoda, the High Court building, the famous Strand Hotel. Then around evening, we will visit some markets, and appreciate the Shwedagon Pagoda at the sunset time. The second day we will visit the Bogyoke Aungsan market, and go to Dala by trishaw.
Feel free to personalize this offer with Kevin.
The building is considered a fine example of syncretic Burmese architecture, featuring traditional tiered roofs called pyatthat, and was designed by Burmese architect U Tin, who also designed Central Railway Station.
It is a Burmese stupa located in the heart of downtown Yangon, occupying the center of the city and an important space in contemporary Burmese politics, ideology and geography. According to legend, it was built before the Shwedagon Pagoda during the time of the Buddha, making it more than 2,600 years old.
The High Court Building was designed by architect James Ransome, construction of the High Court began in 1905 and was completed in 1911, and is noted for its colonial-era Indo-Saracenic Architecture, including its clock tower and its red-bricked exterior.
Author John Murray in his 1911 ‘Handbook for Travellers in India, Burma and Ceylon’ declared The Strand as “the finest hostelry East of Suez”, a title it has enjoyed for more than 100 years.
Built in 1901 and acquired soon after by the Sarkies brothers, famed for the likes of Raffles in Singapore and The E&O in Penang, The Strand Hotel remains one of Asia’s most enduring and awe-inspiring Colonial landmarks.
Authentic Myanmar food
The weather will be too hot to go out in the noon.
A major bazaar located in Pabedan township in central Yangon. Known for its colonial architecture and inner cobblestone streets, the market is a major tourist destination, dominated by antique, Burmese handicraft and jewellery shops, art galleries, and clothing stores.
No visit to the Union of Myanmar is complete without a visit to the 2,500 years old Shwedagon Pagoda, which enshrines strands of Buddha's hair and other holy relics. Located west of the Royal Lake on 114 -acre Singuttara Hill in Yangon, Shwedagon Pagoda is the most sacred and impressive Buddhist site for the people of the Union of Myanmar.
A lot to see and a lot to buy in the market.
It is located on the southern bank of Yangon river across from downtown Yangon. Rather than modern skyscrapers and colonial buildings, there are colorful fishing boats and houses which can only really be described as shacks.
It was the home and administrative seat of British Burma, in downtown Yangon, Burma and is the spot where Aung San and six cabinet ministers were assassinated.
