Yangon is a city brimming with culture, with a plethora of temples, churches and pagodas found amid bustling restaurants and bars. You’ll embark on a guided walking tour of this beguiling city, starting at Mahabandoola Road, where you’ll explore the Immanuel Baptist Church followed by a stroll down Pansodan Street. You’ll also see architectural landmarks such as the colonial-era High Court Building and the grand, colonnaded Law Court.
Bank Street, leading up to the famous Sule Pagoda in downtown Yangon (which dates back 2,000 years) makes for a fun walk, with fortune tellers hanging out under the trees waiting to be consulted by those yearning to know what their future holds. After visiting the Mosmeah Yeshua Synagogue on 26th
Street (Burma's only synagogue), the bustling Indian and Chinese quarters, the colourful Shri Kali Hindu temple and the colourful Theingyi Market (pickled snake, anyone?), head to the legendary Shwedagon Pagoda, featuring an opulent 100-metre stupa, in time to see the sun set over the horizon. Retreat to the elegant Savoy
for your final night, before flying home the following day.
