More About This Experience

Your Yangon tour starts with a quick walk through the city's streets as you head down to the riverside and jetty. There, you'll travel like a local on a public ferry across the mighty Yangon River. The journey is only 10 minutes long, but it'll offer up a great view of daily river life, not to mention excellent photo ops! From here, your Yangon city tour will take you by either private taxi or "dyna truck' (a pick-up truck similar to a songthaew) through the countryside as you head toward the town of Twante, where local potters work with traditional tools and local kilns and materials. Once there, you'll visit with community artisans and not only see some of their products, but also learn how their work is produced. Fancy getting your hands dirty? Then participate in a literal hands-on lesson as you test out their traditional pottery methods. Next up, you're heading up and walking for about 20 minutes uphill to reach Shwesandaw Pagoda, one of the highest pagodas in Myanmar. Take in the fantastic view of the surrounding area and feel 1,000 years of history at your feet. Hungry? Good, because your next stop is a popular local restaurant that specializes in vegetarian cuisine. The restaurant is situated close to the local market, and you'll have plenty of time to relax and explore the area. Finally, your Yangon tour finishes with a return ferry ride, but not before your guide has pointed out a few note-worthy sites on the ride back. Board the boat to re-cross the Yangon River, and head back into downtown Yangon.
