Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Yangon and transfer to your central hotel
Yangon. It oozes of exotic spices, the British colonial era and years in solitude. Now, a good mix of past and present, so clearly of Asian heritage and so very much its own. After being transferred from the airport, spend the rest of your day wandering Yangon’s downtown on your own. Take in the city from above by climbing Sakura Tower where you will find a restaurant on the 22 nd floor. Or simply stroll the city roads to get closer to life at street level.

Practicalities:
Accommodation: Overnight at central hotel in Yangon.
Transport and Guide: Your guide will meet you in Yangon airport and transfer you to your hotel (remember to make us aware of your arrival time and details in advance).

Day 2: Yangon - Morning tour with the Monks, Mohinga and Markets
What’s happening in the streets of Yangon when most other people are still sleeping or taking their shower? You’re going to find out soon. Your guide will be expecting you in the lobby of your hotel at 06:30 and take you through the morning traffic to Yangon's main fish market. Located on the Yangon River, the offloading point is alive 24 hours a day and will also be bustling when you arrive. Chilly ice block trucks, fish piled in colorfull plastic baskets and hard working young guys making their way through the market with today's catch.
Continue to a 24 hours open vegetable market and try the famous Burmese breakfast called Mohinga (a mild fish soup with noodles and crackers). By that time the monks are walking through the streets of Yangon to collect their alms and you will wait for them to pass and donate a bit of food to them. Walk through the fruit and vegetable market before heading back to your hotel (around 09:30 am) to have your full western breakfast.

You will have the rest of the day and evening at your convenience to explore Yangon’s backstreets and colourful street life. Pay a visit to the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda and marvel over the city's colonial heritage. Hang out at a corner when the sun sets and be seated for a spicy roadside dinner surrounded by nothing but friendliness and smiles.

Practicalities:
Meals: Breakfast included.
Accommodation: Overnight at central hotel in Yangon.
Transport and Guide: Your guide will pick you up at 06:30 and together you go by van to the markets.
Transport not included: Any self-transfer during your free day and evening.

Day 3: Yangon
Wake up for a slow morning, free for you to do as you please. Venture into the small backstreets of sleepy Yangon. Watch the city come to life, the locals opening up the store gate, and the first mug of tea being stirred. Take in the sight of the old colonial past, the colourful produce at the local markets, money switching hands, chatter and laugh in the air.

Remember to check out before 12.00 noon and prepare to leave Burma behind or set of for more Burma explorations.
