Add To Plan

Get a genuine glimpse into the lives of the local townspeople by visiting a variety of revealing sites, including a monastery, market and local village.

Joining your coach and guide at the pier, you will commence the drive to Thanlyin, also known as Syriam, an ancient section of the city at the confluence of the Yangon and Bago rivers. Once a major port, Thanlyin was heavily damaged in 1756 during the Mon revolt, and as a consequence, nearby Yangon prospered. Today, Thanlyin offers visitors the chance to experience Myanmar's traditional ways of life.

Your first stop is at the Bon Pyan Monastery where you will witness how the monks devotedly spend their days in this ancient religious site. Then, in complete contrast to Bon Pyan's reverent atmosphere, you will take an amusing pony cart ride through the city streets to the bustling Thanlyin vegetable market. Here, wandering among the vendors' shops and stalls, you will gain great insight into the everyday lives of the people.

Once again changing modes of transportation, you will climb aboard a trishaw, a three-wheeled bike-like vehicle that is used extensively around Yangon. Your driver will pedal you to a small village where you are provided yet another slice-of-life experience. Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to walk the village's shaded streets, engage with the friendly residents, and get an unvarnished view of life in a typical Myanmar village.

After a visit of approximately 1-hour, you will enjoy some refreshments at a local restaurant and then board your coach for the ride back to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2-hours of easy to moderate walking. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and not recommended for those with mobility concerns. Conservative attire is required and shoulders and knees must be covered. Flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. When entering the Monastery, visitors must remove their shoes and socks.
