Discover the historical town of Yangon on an impressive half-day tour. Their next stop is the 2,000-year-old Sule Pagoda, which is venerated by local people and tourists equally. Bogyoke (Scott) Market, full of handicrafts, gives you an insight into the everyday lives of many people.
The next stop is Shwedagon Pagoda, one of the most impressive places of worship in the underworld. The first half days take you to the Yangon historic center, a stop for photos of the Karaweik Hall Royale Boat and the Sule Pagoda, which is over 2,000 years old.
Continue to Bogyoke (Scott) Markt, followed by an extensive tour of the world-famous Shwedagon Pagoda! His gold Stupa is the "heart" for all Buddhists in Myanmar. This pagoda is said to be 2,500 years old and the main stupa is encircled by a dozen elaborately adorned houses and sculptures.
First, head to the east door of the Shwedagon Lagoon and go along the small stores selling monk's supplies, Buddha sculptures, flower and more. Then go up the stairs where many sellers are selling artifacts for their own Shrines. Go further around the front part of the podium in the traditional azimuth.
Take this hands-on walk through the pit lanes and exploring trails and jewels that are unfamiliar to most people. Drive through the back of the Shwedagon pit and find its intriguing story. Footwear and hosiery must be taken off to go to the Shwedagon Lounge and you will be asked to use long sleeved and dresses/trousers that cover your knee.
