Yangon lies in the fertile delta of southern Myanmar, on the wide Yangon River. The city is filled with tree-shaded boulevards, while shimmering stupas float above the treetops.

Among others, you will see the Independent Monument, the High Court, the City Hall and the Sule Pagoda. Finally, continue to the Shwedagon Pagoda, the highlight of any visit to Yangon. Towering over the city, this pagoda is the most sacred spot in the country, built to house eight hair relics of the Buddha. The Shwedagon and surrounding shrines are at their most beautiful during the sunset hour, as the golden stupa reflects the changing colors of twilight. Proceed to the Yuzana Plaza (closed on Monday). Continue to Bahan Market, which is near Shwedagon Pagoda.

Visit Sule Pagoda (30 minutes) Sule Pagoda is a 48 metre high golden dome used by the British as the nucleus of their grid development plan for the city when it was rebuilt in the 1880s. The pagoda’s peculiarity is its octagonal-shaped stupa, which retains its shape as it tapers to the spire.
