Architectural Walking Tour of Yangon - Private

Architectural Walking Tour of Yangon - Private

The 3 hour walking tour will cover 4-5 kilometers in the central districts of downtown. Many of the buildings visited are on the Yangon City Heritage List, a list of 188 men -made structures mainly consisting of religious landmarks and colonial-era buildings.

Highlights include City Hall, the old railway station and the former Minister’s office where General Aung San was assassinated. 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 Pagoda and Botataung Pagoda.

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.

Next we’ll stop for a cup of tea or coffee at Lat Ywae Sin, a favorite tea shop with the locals. Busy from morning until night, this shop roasts its own coffee and has unique wood carvings on its wall. If you are feeling hungry, they are famous for their semolina cake and also offer great noodle dishes (drinks only; food not included).

If your feet are tired we recommend heading to the 6th floor of Sakura Tower for a rejuvenating foot massage performed by local blind masseurs who have been trained in traditional Japanese reflexology (additional fee will apply).
