In the morning, you will meet the professional guide and driver at the appointed time at the hall of your hotel. After a warm greeting, the guide will transfer you to the Chauk Htat Gyi Buddha Temple to start your Yangon day trip. Built in 1960, this temple is famed for worshipping a giant reclining Buddha, which is the largest one in Myanmar of 20 meters (22 yards) long and 5.4 meters (17.7 feet) high. There are 108 images carved on the soles of the Buddha's feet, representing 108 reincarnations from the perspective of Buddhism.
After that, we will go to Sule Pagoda, which is located in the center of Yangon. Regarded as the primary attraction and the landmark of the city, this shining pagoda is entirely plated with gold, very glittering and spectacular. Zodiac sculptures there also attract a lot of tourists. You can find your zodiac sign according to your date of birth. It is said that worshipping your zodiac sculpture there can help you gain good luck. Getting out of the pagoda, our guide will lead you to Maha Bandula Park. As its name indicates, it was built in memory of the great national hero, Mahabandula, who fought to guard his motherland and died during the First Anglo-Burmese War (1824 - 1826). Here you can also see the distinguished Independence Monument standing peacefully in the park, as well as the distinctive historical colonial buildings. People usually find leisure and recreation in the park, and it is an ideal place for you to relax yourself and experience the local people's life as well.
After that, we will head for the Indian Town and China Town to continue our Yangon tour. Visiting these two towns can provide you a great chance to taste authentic Chinese and Indian food, and get a close contact with the cultures and customs of the two old countries. Accompanied by our guide, you will go to Bogyoke Aung San Market in the afternoon, which is the biggest and the liveliest market in Yangon. It is open from Tuesday to Sunday. You can buy a variety of natural pearls, gold and silver jewelry, and handicrafts over there. As the shopping paradise for foreign tourists, this market attracts thousands of people to go shopping every day.
When getting out of the market, our guide will accompany you to the Shwedagon Pagoda. This renowned pagoda is the national symbol of Myanmar and is one of the Three Greatest Ancient Sites, together with the Borobudur Temple Compounds in Indonesia and the Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Stupas there are all covered by gold. Besides, 1,065 golden bells, 420 silver bells, and 4,531 gems were used to decorate the towers. You can definitely take great pictures if the weather is clear. Considered as the most sacred pagoda in Burma, it was built to consecrate the relics of four great Buddha, namely the cane of Kakusandha, the water bottle of Konagamana, the frock of Kassapa, as well as eight hairs of Sakyamuni.
This one-day private Myanmar Yangon day tour will come to an end at this point. Our guide will then send you back to your hotel during 18:30 ~ 19:00.
