Day 1 - Arrive Yangon


Upon arrival at Yangon International Airport you will be greeted by your Exo Travel guide and driver who will transfer you to your hotel for check-in. 

Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon, is a relatively quiet and charming city with an impressive colonial and spiritual heritage. It’s a great starting point for a Myanmar holiday.

After freshening up, set off for a tour of the city’s highlights. First visit Kyaukhtatgyi Pagoda, which is home to a 70 metre long reclining Buddha. Continue through the city, stopping as you wish to take photos or relax with a drink at a local tea shop. From here, continue to Shwedagon Pagoda the most revered Buddhist temple in Myanmar. Although the origins of the pagoda are unclear, the local legend states that the original structure was built 2500 years ago then renovated several times until taking its current shape in the 15th century. The 8-sided central stupa is 99 meters tall and gilded with gold leaf and is surrounded by 64 smaller stupas and your guide will show you around the massive complex, explaining why this temple is so revered. Enjoy breathtaking views of the golden stupa from this vantage point.

Overnight in Yangon.

Distances and journey time:

Yangon Airport to Yangon city centre (20 km): 30 – 60 mins

Day 2 - Yangon - Bago - Kyaikhtiyo (B)


Depart Yangon this morning for the scenic drive to Bago, the capital of the 16th century Mon kingdom. 

Your visit in Bago begins at Shwethalyaung Temple which houses a beautiful 55-meter long reclining Buddha. Continue to the Mon-style Shwemawdaw Pagoda, one of the most venerated in Myanmar and whose 114 meter spire is taller than the one at Shwedagon Pagoda. While in Bago we’ll also take time to visit the city’s local sites, including the town market and a Mon neighbourhood for a short stroll around a typical Bago village.

This afternoon, arrive at Kyaikhtiyo base camp. Travel by local, open-air truck along a winding road (45 minutes) where you be dropped off at the junction camp to travel the final distance to Golden Rock on foot. The uphill trek is along a paved trekking path and offers great views of the surrounding area. For an easier alternative, four porters can carry you uphill in a specially-made sedan chair allowing you to enjoy the views without all of the hard work! (extra cost not included) 

After about one hour of trekking, reach the Golden Rock.  A huge boulder covered by gold leaf and delicately balanced on the edge of a cliff, Golden Rock is one of Myanmar's main pilgrimage sites.  The pagoda here is said to hold a hair of the Buddha and Buddhist from across the country come here to pay homage. 

Overnight near Golden Rock.

Distances and journey time:

This afternoon, continue two hours drive by road to Hpa An, a small town surrounded by beautiful limestone rock formations and is the capital of the Karen state.   En-route visit to Bayint Nyi Cave and Kaw Gun Cave.

Continue the drive to Mawlamyaing , which is about  one and half hours. En-route visit to Kawhnat-Kadoe, village of U Nar Ouk. During the colonial times, U Nar Ouk ran a local ferry boat company and fell into competition with the famed Ayeyarwaddy Flotila group. A price-war ensued, resulting in free ferry travel for all locals. This business tale is famous in Myanmar and taught in the text books of all primary school children. Visit to the monastery, built and donated by U Nar Ouk, where you still can see many ancient arts and crafts for decoration.

Arrive this afternoon in the Mon State capital of Mawlamyaing, formerly known as Moulmein. Situated near the mouth of the Thanlwin River, this attractive town is surrounded by leafy, tropical areas and has a hilly ridge serving as a backdrop.  The town was also the capital of British Burma between 1827 and 1852 and it retains some of the atmosphere of the colonial times.

Pyay, also known as Prome, served as the capital of the Pyu Kingdom from the 5th – 9th centuries. The city was circular with walls encircling it, stretching some 46 square kilometres, making it Asia’s largest walled city at the time. These days it is a sleepy riverside town with a unique charm. 

As an introduction to the city, visit Shwe Sandaw Pagoda, a pagoda of great religious importance to the Burmese people as it contains twelve relics from the Buddha and is the only temple in the country with two umbrellas at the top of its stupa. Nearby is a massive seated Buddha Statue which was recently renovated and from this point you will have views of the Irrawaddy River in the distance. 

Midday stop for lunch at a local restaurant. (client’s account)

This afternoon venture away from the city centre (8 kilometres) to visit the ancient city of Sriketra. Also known as Thayeikhittaya, the area was once the largest and most elaborate city in the area and spans 19 square kilometres. These days the ruins of the city walls and brick temples are hidden amid thorny bushes.

End your day with a stroll along Strand Road, Pyay’s main street, and browse the night market. The town is small and easy to get around on foot. There are many restaurants in the city centre as well.

Day 9 - Pyay - Magway (B)


After breakfast at the hotel, drive north to Magway (200 km/ 4 hours drive). The road passes through more beautiful rural scenery dotted with small towns. 

Along the way we will stop at Beikthano, another ancient city more than 2000 years old. For those with a keen interest in history and archaeology, Beikthano is a real delight. It is one of the best examples of early Pyu civilizations and there are rhombus-shaped city walls stretching more than 2 miles in each direction. Inside the walls are large, crumbling brick structures whose design reflects monastic buildings from South India as well as unique burial grounds.

From here continue on to Magway Division where, on arrival, we’ll stop to check in at the hotel. Magway is well known for its production of both groundnut and sesame oils, earning itself the nickname, ‘Oil pot of Myanmar’. The town is also known for producing exotic fruits especially the unusual, yet delicious phangar fruit.

After freshening up, have lunch at a local restaurant in town.

The temple is believed to be the site of an ancient monastery built of sandal wood in which the Lord Buddha spent some time after having achieved enlightenment. The name itself is quite interesting with: Kyaung meaning monastery, Taw referring to religious hierarchy or royalty, and Yar means the site on which the Kyaung Taw stood. 

On the return to Magway stop at Nagar Pwet Taung, an unusual pool of bubbling mud. This unusual geological phenomenon is believed, by the locals, to be caused by dragons (nagas) living deep inside the earth.
