Welcome to Yangon - the biggest and most bustling city in Myanmar, a unique city in Southeast Asia with all nostalgic colors of time and culture reserved over centuries.
If you are interested in colonial era architecture, a stroll down Yangon's colonial buildings will definitely blow you away by well-reserved images from the 20th century, with decaying facades filled with old paint and small trees squeezing through those little cracks.
Moreover, proud of rich cultural tradition, Yangon will amaze you with plenty of spiritual relics where you can experience the importance of Buddhism to the Burmese’s lives: tranquil Chaukhtatgyi Temple containing an over-200-feet-long reclining Buddha, the octagonal-shaped 2500 year old pagoda Sule Pagoda located in the heart of the city, and especially the legendary Shwedagon Pagoda - the massive 99 meter high gold plated pagoda with the diamond studded spire on top of a small hill in downtown Yangon.
And don’t miss chance to meditate in pagoda’s mystical atmosphere beautifully lit up after dark.

Proudly known as the orginal land of Mon people and culture, Bago is one of the richest archaeological sites in Myanmar in which ancient Myanmar culture and flourishing Buddhism are still main way of life. After 2 hours driving from Yangon, Bago countryside will soon impress our eyes with gorgeous Kyaik Pun pagoda form of four gigantic Buddha images placed back to back with each other; the tallest ever Shwemawdaw pagoda, the proudest and most important construction from Mon kingdom; KhaKhatWain Monastery to participate in beautiful almsgiving ceremony with 500 monks in the morning. Beside, a visit to a lively local market will provide you a brilliant chance to get closer to local life and commute with curious and cheerful Burmese.
Just more than 2-hour driving from the center of Yangon, there is a truly heaven for any nature enthusiast and specially bird lover named Moeyungyi Wetland Wildlife Sanctuary. Exploring a humble water body of Moeyungyi on a small boat, you are given an opportunity to commute with nature and appreciate over hundred of resident and migratory beautiful water birds in their indigenous habitat.

One of the lesser-known highlights when visiting Yangon is Dala, the southern rural township of Yangon. The only easy way to reach the land is by public boat over Yangon river which offers you first insight of what daily life is going on both sides of the river. Soon enough around 15 minutes, the busy pier of Dala comes to your sight from which we head out on a local trishaw to watch people go about their daily lives on colorful markets, tea shops or discover stunning pagoda of ShweSayan. There are always great chances to interact with friendly locals, learn about their culture and the way they cherish their lives.
