Meet and great at hotel and transfer to downtown to experience a colonial walking tour that will cover 4-5 kilometres in the central districts of downtown. Many of the buildings visited are on the Yangon City Heritage List, a list of 188 man-made structures mainly consisting of religious landmarks and colonial-era buildings. By walking through the streets you’ll also have a chance to witness the lifestyles of the locals- from the busy bus and boat stations to the tea shops and hidden street markets. There are plenty of chances to interact with Yangon residents and learn more about the Burmese culture.
Highlights include City Hall, the old railway station, the former Minister’s office where General Aung San was assassinated in 1947. Other colonial landmarks are also included in this tour such as the Main Post Office, The Strand Hotel, a colonial gem renovated to its former glory and the High Court. Interspersed in the guided walk are various religious sites such as the St Mary’s Cathedral, built in 1899, and the Buddhist landmarks of Sule Paya.
During the tour, you’ll stop for a cup of tea or coffee and snacks at Rangoon Tea House, a reminiscence of the grand tea houses found in Yangon during the British colonial era. Transfer back to the hotel.
