OverviewHide
Discover the Buddhist temples of Yangon and, along the way, enjoy a taste of local life. Your half-day excursion begins in the old port of Thanlyin, a vital center of trade centuries ago. Pay a visit to the morning market where locals clamor for fresh fruits and produce. Here, you’ll also enjoy a rather unique adventure. Hop on one of the merchant’s horse carts for a rumbling ride through the market. From here, you’ll make your first temple visit. Marvel at the mighty golden stupa of the Kyaik-khauk Pagoda, dating back more than 2,000 years. Next, hop in a local boat and journey down the Yangon River to the “floating temple” of Kyauk Tan. Set on a tiny island, this pagoda complex dates back to the 3rd century BC. Enjoy a guided exploration before stopping in a typical local village for a glimpse of daily life in rural Myanmar.
