There's a beautiful post office, the starting point of your tour. From here, you head to SulePaya, passing the Independence Monument, Mahabandoola Garden and Strand Hotel along the way.

Little India and Chinatown offer a colorful cacophony of temples, markets and restaurants and they are up next in your itinerary. Formerly known as Scott's Market, Bogyoke Market is where you can browse through dozens of shops and stalls and search for unique goods and handicrafts (The market is closed on mondays and public holidays).

Have lunch at a local restaurant where you enjoy delicious Burmese cuisine in a clean and comfortable environment. After lunch, visit the Kyaukhtatgyi Pagoda, home to a 70-meter long reclining Buddha. You can enjoy a fascinating overview of Buddhism and check out beautiful paintings and statues.

Experience an integral part of Burmese life: drinking tea. Go to a local tea shop where you can sample delicious snacks and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee while taking a seat amid families, friends and businessmen, who gather at the tea shop to socialize or conduct business.

The Kandawagyi Park, one of central Yangon's greenest spots, is your next stop. Besides the glittering Karaweik barge, a replica of the royal barge, you can also see the vast lake with views of Shwedagon in the background.

From here, you will move towards the Shwedagon Pagoda, which is ranked as the most revered Buddhist temple in Myanmar. Although no one knows the exact origins of the pagoda, the structure is said to have been built 2500 years ago and renovated several times until the 15th century. Explore this stunning complex, check out the magnificent 8-sided central stupa that rises to a height of 99 meters and is gilded with a gold leaf.
