The Heritage Walking Tour in Yangon

The city of Yangon is the gateway to the sights of Myanmar, with incredible cultural heritage, delicious cuisine, and kind locals. This vibrant city is filled with a fusion of crumbling British colonial architecture, newly built office buildings, colorful streets and bustling open-air markets that sell a range of locally sourced and exquisite hand-made goods.

Crystal Holidays Travel will take on a journey to discover the highlights of Yangon. Marvel at grandiose golden Shwedagon Pagoda which boasts a jewel-studded spire that can be seen from all over the city. Gaze upon the remains of Chaukhitgyi Paya statue that once stood high above the city. Erosion caused the statue to crumble and it was then rebuilt into a reclining Buddha.

Next, you can explore the city’s famous bazaar, Bogyoke Market, which sprawls across two levels and is a veritable treasure trove. Find everything from jade jewelry, antiques and beautiful carvings to clothes and exotic fruits. Another option is to jump on board a luxuriously renovated Elephant Coach, to see the bustling port of Syriam in style.
