The detailed program
You’ll be greeted at your hotel by your guide in Yangon at 8.00 in the morning.
There are many places to visit in Yangon, but today you will get to know the “real” Yangon with a fascinating morning excursion through the city and its suburbs. Start with a ride on the commuter train. Referred to as the “Circular Train,” the train travels slowly and stops often allowing travelers and vendors to hop on and off throughout the journey. Enjoy watching the activity on the train as well as outside as it passes through local neighborhoods and alongside markets (The train ride is 20-30 minutes in a basic train car with no air-conditioning). Get off at one of the stations and change to a different form of local transport–a trishaw, for a ride through a local neighborhood. Visit nearby markets to see fresh goods such as bananas and coconuts being sold as well as fresh fish, vegetables, and other items. It’s then time to take a break–the local way! Sit at a tea shop, sip on sweet tea, and taste a variety of traditional snacks.
You will be transferred back to the hotel around noon to close off the excursion.
