Yangon (formerly known as Rangoon), the capital of Myanmar is also called the “Garden City of the East” because of its many parks and beautiful lakes. This morning visit the Botataung Pagoda, which is hollow and you are able to walk through and see many ancient relics and artifacts. We then visit downtown Yangon and from here we walk along Pansodan street to view its many large colonial buildings which are still in use today. It is also interesting to see the sidewalk markets including those selling old books and magazines dating from the 1960’s to today. We will then visit China town before going to the famous Scott Market, a sprawling complex which was built in 1926 and it is noted for its variety of handicrafts and other items which provides an excellent opportunity for a shopping spree. This afternoon sightseeing includes the colossal reclining Buddha Chaukhtatkyi, and the National Museum, which is filled with artifacts and cultural exhibits of Myanmar. We finish our tour with a visit to the awe-inspiring Shwedagon Pagoda which towers over all of Yangon. It is perhaps the most beautiful pagoda complex in all of Asia and is one sight that no visitor to Myanmar should miss.
