Syriam Full Day Tour - Private

Syriam Full Day Tour - Private

With your Travel guide and car, depart this morning for the one-hour drive to Syriam. Also referred to as Thanlyin, Syriam has an interesting past first rising to prominence as a port during the 15 th century, then briefly falling under Portuguese rule in the 17 th century, serving as the base for the French East India company and finally joining the British empire. These days Syriam is home to three universities and, despite its proximity to Yangon, remains a quiet, sleepy town.

Upon arrival we'll explore this pleasant town, driving around the tree-lined streets to see the main sites and get a glimpse of local life. Visit the hilltop pagoda at Kyaik Khauk, which is 4 kilometres outside of the town centre, and offers fabulous views including Shwedagon Pagoda in the far distance. Also visit Ye Le Pagoda (also called Kyauktan) which is built on a small island. We'll take a local boat across to this unique temple.

A lunch stop will be made in Syriam (client's account).
