DAY 1: YANGON ARRIVAL

In Yangon Airport, you will meet our tour guide and driver who will then welcome you to the country and transfer you to the hotel. After the hotel check-in, get prepared for the afternoon city tour to the downtown area. The outstanding sites are Sule Pagoda, City Hall, Independence Palace, and High Court. Each stop will be full of sightseeing and photography opportunities.

After a good rest, walk in downtown Yangon to visit Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda that is known for the 70m-long reclining Buddha image, as one of the most revered sites in Myanmar. Go for a stroll around the spectacular Kandawgyi Lake from which you can view the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda and Karaweik Palace with the iconic barge design. The Shwedagon looks fantastic in the late afternoon, and then in the evening, it becomes illuminated with the gold-encrusted architecture.

DAY 2: YANGON – KYAIKHTIYO – GOLDEN ROCK (B)

After breakfast in the hotel, be ready for the 5-hour drive to the unparalleled Golden Rock – the remarkable tourist attraction and Buddhist pilgrimage venue in Mon State. Make a stopover at Kyakhat Wine Monastery that shelters many monks who are studying Buddhism and pursuit the monastic life. Later, you’ll arrive at the base camp from which the local open-air truck will take you to the junction camp, and then the fantastic Rock. While the Golden Rock is gold-encrusted and unique, the Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda on the top is very revered. Know that only men are allowed to touch the Rock and apply the gold leaves on it. You will have around 45 minutes to enjoy walking around the destination. If you want to use the sedan-chair, pay for this service.

  • Mountain Top Hotel & Kaikhtoo Hotel (5 minutes walking from the second truck stop): These hotels are located next to the Golden Rock, and the common charge for a porter is 3000-5000 Ks per way (2-4 suitcases depending on the size).
  • Other hotels are scattered around the base of the mountain. Suitcases can be taken directly to the hotels.

DAY 3: GOLDEN ROCK – BAGO – YANGON (B)

Today, you will have breakfast in the hotel, move to the base camp on the open-air truck, and then take a transfer drive back to Yangon. Along the scenic drive, there will be time to discover the impressive Shwe Mawdaw Pagoda in Bago (aka Pegu) that is the tallest pagoda in the country. The eye-catching architecture and the great height of the pagoda can amaze guests who are happy to raise the cameras and take amazing shots. The next stop is Kanbawzathardi Palace which is a reconstruction of the former royal palace of the 16th century. What’s more, the special trip will go on to the unparalleled Shwethalyaung Pagoda that enshrines one of the largest Buddha statues in Myanmar. The mysterious, ancient, and holy Bago land is also noticeable for the revered Kyaik Pun Pagoda that has four towering Buddha statues that can be seen from afar. Also, don’t miss your opportunities to go for a tour around the local market and a Mon site to watch how the Burmese people make the woven textiles.
