Spend 3 Days in Yangon, Myanmar’s largest urban center and known as the ‘Garden City of the East.’ Now that Myanmar has opened its doors to international travel, visitors from all around the globe flock here each year to discover Burmese culture, sacred sites, and local lifestyles. This riverfront city is also Myanmar’s commercial and artistic center, as well as a thriving cultural melting pot. You’ll soon discover how Yangon, Myanmar blends modern expansion with its beautiful scenery, priceless art, and millennium-old Theravada Buddhist traditions.

Buddhism is an integral part of Burmese life. Since approximately 90% of Myanmar’s population practices this ancient faith, it comes as no surprise that some major Yangon attractions include the country’s iconic temples -- which number in the thousands! You’ll see the highly revered Botataung Pagoda, situated on Yangon’s riverbank and famous for its Buddha relic. Explore Sule Pagoda, a striking example of how ancient traditions and modern life coexist in Myanmar, since a bustling traffic circle surrounds this brilliant, golden building. Shwedagon Pagoda, considered one of the most sacred and impressive temples in the entire country, is encrusted with gold and glittering gemstones -- including a diamond that weighs over 70 carats!

Your Yangon vacation also immerses you into the city’s charming local life and daily activities. You’ll visit a traditional Burmese tea shop to learn more about the country’s treasured tea culture. In Myanmar, tea is an important part of everyday life, and many locals gather at nearby shops to sip a comforting cup accented with a splash of sweetened condensed milk. Enjoy a relaxing stroll through Yangon markets -- great places to get a sense of what Burmese daily life is really like. You’ll see the city’s Chinatown, a true street bazaar that teems with fresh produce, delicious street food, savory meats and fish, and steaming cups of tea. Venture through the city’s Night Market, and stop by Bogyoke Aung San Market. With its 2,000 shops and an excellent selection of local handicrafts, you’re sure to find the perfect souvenir (or three).

AAT’s 3 Days in Yangon also takes you to some of the city’s major landmarks. You’ll walk through Yangon University, an institution in the process of reinventing itself and dedicated to providing students with a world-class education. You’ll also have the chance to see the Yangon colonial district and tour notable colonial buildings, including the Strand Hotel. One of Southeast Asia’s premier hotels, the Strand once saw famous guests like Rudyard Kipling and George Orwell. This renovated Victorian mansion also offers luxurious touches such as windows framed with rich teak, lofty ceilings, and an atmosphere of unsurpassed elegance.

Without a doubt, Yangon is one of Southeast Asia’s must- see cities. Discover this tour’s complete list of attractions and destinations in the detailed itinerary.
