“Book it! ! This was a brilliant beginning to our trip to Myanmar. I highly recommend it. We got right in there and it was so much fun, so much to see and so much hustle and bustle! It gave us a lot more confidence getting around town too. ...Catherine S., – See more reviews
What To Expect
Experience as downtown Yangon comes alive on this city walking tour that takes you through the city's main market district.
First up, wander through the chaos of Shwe Bontha Street, crammed with locals selling secondhand items - anything and everything from electronics to footwear. But if all the excitement of the market leaves you seeking serenity, get your dose of Zen as you pass by both Buddhist and Hindu temples on the way toward China Town, and plunge back into a world where street vendors dominate the landscape, selling everything from gold to vegetables.
As you head into China Town, stop for a refreshing drink and snack - maybe a green tea at a local tea shop or a freshly squeezed sugarcane juice at a roadside stall. Snap some photos at a nearby temple adorned with hundreds of images depicting mythological scenes.
While this busy area is a shopping hotspot when evening comes, it's still off the radar for most visitors. With blocks of little boutiques and antique shops tucked down alleyways, you could easily refurbish your house and obtain an entirely new wardrobe in one day. And if you're still hungry, make your way through roadside market stalls filled with fruit, vegetables, fresh seafood and locally cooked delicacies.
Heading onto 19th Street, discover this small side street is filled vendor after vendor boasting charcoal grills, cooking up all sorts of meats, veggies and marinades. This is the place to go for street food in Yangon, with lots of outdoor seating, bustling local life, and plenty of beer. Your guide will treat you to some of their favorite snacks and a beer to finish off this unique exploration of downtown Yangon.
