“I had a fantastic time! A fast paced walking tour right through the heart of the city, down side streets I never would have otherwise visited. It was a great orientation to the city. Our guide, Myo, was wonderful and informative, giving us information not just about the immediate area and sights, but about Yangon and Myanmar culture in general. He also recognised a few days later when we were waiting at the airport. Such incredibly friendly service! Very happy with the tour – definitely exceeded my expectations.”

“Book it!! This was a brilliant beginning to our trip to Myanmar. I highly recommend it. We got right in there and it was so much fun, so much to see and so much hustle and bustle! It gave us a lot more confidence getting around town too. I am definitely booking another urban adventure in a new country that I visit to give me the same confidence and insight into the city/culture.”
ITINERARY

Experience as downtown Yangon comes alive on this city walking tour that takes you through the city’s main market district. 

First up, you’ll wander through the chaos of Shwe Bontha Street, crammed with locals selling secondhand (and third- and fourth-hand) items — anything and everything from electronics to footwear (shopaholics, you’ve been warned).

But if all the excitement of the market leaves you seeking serenity, you’ll get your dose of Zen as you pass by both Buddhist and Hindu temples on the way toward China Town, and plunge back into a world where streetside vendors dominate the landscape, selling everything from gold to vegetables. 

As your Yangon city tour heads into China Town, you’ll stop for a refreshing drink and snack — maybe a green tea at a local tea shop or a freshly squeezed sugarcane juice at a roadside stall. Wherever your thirst guides you! Snap some photos at a nearby temple that’s adorned with hundreds of images depicting mythological scenes.  

While this busy area is a shopping hotspot when evening comes, it’s still off the radar for most visitors. With blocks of little boutiques and antique shops tucked down alleyways, you could easily refurbish your house and obtain an entirely new wardrobe in one day (getting those purchases home in your luggage is another matter). And if you’re still hungry, your Yangon tour will make its way through roadside market stalls filled with fruit, vegetables, fresh seafood, and locally cooked delicacies.

Heading onto 19th Street, you’ll discover this small side street is filled vendor after vendor boasting charcoal grills, cooking up all sorts of meats, veggies, and marinades. This is the place to go for street food in Yangon, with lots of outdoor seating, bustling local life, and plenty of beer. Your guide will treat you to some of their favourite snacks and a beer to finish off this unique exploration of downtown Yangon.
