Yangon Short Break
Got a few days to explore Myanmar's former capital? Discover both the highlights and some hidden gems of Yangon on this short (but sweet) city adventure. Visit gold-plated pagodas and statues, stroll through peaceful city parks and learn about the history, religion and stories of Myanmar from a knowledgable local guide. The next day, experience a comprehensive cross-section of local society on as you ride the rails on Yangon's circular train, stopping off at markets, cathedrals, tea shops and a local lunch hotspot along the way. In just two days you'll get a thorough insight into the heritage, culture and people of Yangon.
