Revolution Road - Full Day

Meals MEALS [ L ]

This tour will start at 09:00.

The tour begins at the spiritual heart of Myanmar, Shwedagon pagoda. Delve deeper into the surrounding area with a visit to the tombs of some of the country’s most influential leaders, including U Thant and General Aung San. Five minutes walking distance away, visit the U Thant Mausoleum (Note: open Tue & Thursday- 09:00 to 13:00, Saturday and Sunday- 11:00 - 17:00 -can only be observed from the outside at other times). Afterwards, visit Su Phayar Latt Mausoleum, Daw Khin Kyi Mausoleum and Tha Khin Ko Taw Hmine Mausoleum. After another five minutes of walking, visit the final resting place of the Emperor of Delhi at Bahadur Shah Mausoleum. The final tomb of the day is the Bo Gyoke Aung San Mausoleum.

Afterwards, visit Bogyoke Aung San Museum, the former residence of General Aung San.  The home now houses Myanmar’s most fascinating memorabilia of the former independence leader. 

Then head to House Of Memories Restaurant for delicious Burmese lunch.   Set in a colonial-style mansion with a beautiful garden, the location was once used as the BIA (Burma Independence Army) and BDA (Burma Defense Army) Headquarters. The building is full of memories of the people who embarked on the long walk toward gaining independence for Myanmar. Wander through the house looking at the historic remnants on display, including a room named after General Aung San (still housing his desk and typewriter.)

After lunch, visit former U.N. Secretary General U Thant’s house, the man who brought Myanmar to the world’s conscious (Note: open Friday, Saturday, Sunday – 10:00 to 17:00).  Next, head to the entrance of Yangon University’s Convocation Hall, where violent protests of the past contrast with Obama’s historic address in November 2012. 

Next, make a photo-stop at Aung San Suu Kyi’s house.  Known as ‘The Lady’, Aung San Suu Kyi has become the symbol for Myanmar’s march towards democracy. End the day with a visit to the National League for Democracy Headquarters, the political party that furiously fought for civil liberties for all citizens.  Afterwards have the option of discussing Myanmar’s past, present and future with the guide at a local tea shop.  (L)
