The Buddhist religion plays an important part in the fabric of the Burma way of life. It is celebrated with offerings performed daily to spiritual deity’s to ensure health, wealth and happiness. On your tour you will visit three of Yangon’s most famous Pagodas and see an insider's perspective of this fascinating culture.

In the morning we visit to the 2,500 years old magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda sheathed in 11 tons of pure gold and 4,350 diamonds weighing 1800 carats! Next we visit to Chaukhtatgyi Pagoda which houses a 70m long Reclining Buddha image and the green Kandawgyi Park and its highlighted Karaweik barge- a replica of the royal barge. We proceed to bustling Bogyoke (Scotts) Market – one of famous markets where hundreds of gemstone, handicrafts, art, clothes and food stores are tucked in a maze of color. (Please note that the market is closed on Mondays and on public holidays). Visit to Giant Marble Buddha Image and white elephant. Then continues to Kabar Aye Pagoda, which is significant for its Sixth Synod which was held in its large compound in 1954, Mahapasana Cave, located in the same compound.

Please note:There are strict dress codes for visiting the Pagodas. Visitors must be properly dressed before being allowed entry to the Shwedagone Pagoda. Men must wear long pants and shirts with sleeves - no sleeveless tops. Women must be similarly modestly dressed. No see-through clothes, bare shoulders, etc. If you show up at the front gate improperly dressed, there is a booth near the entry that can provide clothes to cover you up properly.

Dress standards are conservative throughout Asia, especially outside major cities. To respect this and for your own comfort, we strongly recommend modest clothing, especially when visiting Pagodas. This means clothing that covers your shoulders and knees. Loose, lightweight, long clothing is both respectful and cool in the predominantly hot Asian climate.
