The detailed program

Day 1 : Arrival in Yangon

 

Mingalabar and welcome to Myanmar! Your first stop on your exclusive honeymoon tour in Myanmar is Yangon, the former capital city. Yangon’s colonial charm is simply alluring and your visit will commence with a walking tour of downtown’s most famous buildings and monuments. It is a great introduction to the spiritual, cultural, and historical sides of the city.

Day 2 : Explore Yangon

Enjoy a leisurely start to the morning before meeting your guide for today’s excursion. First cross the Yangon river to Dhala, a sleepy town filled with palm trees and quiet streets where you will get a taste of local Myanmar life. Return to the city center and visit the massive reclining Buddha at Kyauktatgyi Pagoda and Kandawgyi Park’s glittering Royal Barge. After a relaxing tea break, head to the Shwedagon Pagoda, Myanmar’s holiest site, to watch the sun cast its setting rays over the gilded stupa.
