After breakfast at hotel, the first day of your tour in Myanmar starts with a heritage tour to the gorgeous Yangon City Hall, centrally located in Downtown Yangon. Built in 1936 by Myanmar architect U Tin, it is a massive building with traditional tiered roofs, a combination of European design and engineering technology, and is considered to be a fine example of Myanmar architecture. Nearby is the former Immigration Department. This building was designed in 1910 to be the country’s most upmarket department store, Rowe & Company. Proceed to the High Court, a 1911 brick building designed by the architect John Ransome.
Continue walking down to Pansodan Street enjoying impressive colonial buildings and have a stop at Hla Day, a non-profit social enterprise shop, offers quality contemporary and traditional handicrafts sourced from local producers often struggling to overcome disability, exclusion and poverty. You'll find colorful women's and kids' clothing, soft toys, stationery, jewellery, home ware and more. Continue to Strand Road, home to the three-storey former New Law Courts. Next stop is the 1916 Custom House, a large building with an elegant white tower and double-faced clock above the entrance. Walk past the red brick General Post Office to the luxurious Strand Hotel, built in 1901 by the Sarkies brothers, Armenian hoteliers. Finally, see the bustling life at the Nanthida Jetty.
Visit and stroll through the Bogyoke (Scotts) Market (closed on Monday and Gazette Holiday), a compound of hundreds of stalls and shops, that gives you the opportunity to see Myanmar's wide range of handicrafts and gemstones. After a photo stop at the Karaweik Hall, a hamsa (bird) shaped floating barge on Kandawgyi (Royal) Lake, visit the magnificent reclining Buddha Chauk Htat Gyi.
Your trip to Yangon tour ends visit to the most iconic site of the city - the Shwedagon Pagoda, one of the world’s most spectacular and important Buddhist monuments, for sunset viewing.
