Live Like a Local - Full Day
After breakfast, set off for a full day of ‘living like a local’ in Yangon. Begin with a transfer to the Yangon train station and board the slow moving Circle Train. The 20-30 minute ride is a real taste of local life with the train itself being almost as entertaining as the landscapes passing by.
Disembark at Kyee Myin Dine station, an eclectic neighbourhood in the northwest part of Yangon. Visit the area’s local market, home to colourful stalls, friendly shopkeepers and busy shoppers purchasing their daily essentials.
After the visit, transfer to downtown’s vibrant Chinatown area. Begin at the 17th and 18th street markets to witness noodle and rice paper making. Continue with a walk toward Latha Street, stopping to visit a Chinese temple and local food shops making delicacies such as roasted pork.
At midday, stop for lunch at a local curry shop. Enjoy a range of delicious foods amidst the local atmosphere. Continue the local Yangon experience with a trip to Nanthida Jetty. Board a ferry at the buzzing jetty and make the 15-minute crossing to Dala. After reaching Dala, travel by trishaw through the scenic town, which stands in stark contrast to Yangon with its trees, local neighborhoods and quiet side streets.
Return by boat to Yangon, observing life along the river and reflecting back on the excursion to Dala. Upon returning to the Yangon jetty, transport will be provided back to the hotel. (L)
