Day 2

Shwedagon Pagoda - Half day tour with guide

This morning you’ll meet your guide and begin your half day tour behind the golden façade of the Shwedagon Pagoda. Your guide will show you a different perspective to the city and Buddhist religion, exploring the history of the pagoda, the daily lives of the people living around it and how the spiritual belief is mixed with the belief in nats – the Myanmar spirits.

This intriguing half day tour, starting from the bottom of the hill and passing through the workshops, markets and monasteries, will be useful or even essential to understand more of the country during the rest of your journey. The tour includes a traditional Burmese breakfast, offerings to monks and the pagoda, a visit to a fortune teller and a Burmese lunch, what better way to start your trip!
