Full description
Get picked up by your guide at 8:00 am from your accommodation in Yangon. On your way to Bago, visit allied Taukkyan War Cemetery where thousands of British Allied soldiers who fought in the Second World War are buried. Then explore the lively outdoor market of Htauk Kyant and peruse the local wares on offer.  Arrive in Bago and begin your guided city tour by marveling at the four giant Buddha images in the Kyaik Pun Pagoda built by King Dhammaceti in AD 1475. Then pay a visit to the Kyat Khat Wine Monastery and observe the monks in training line up for lunch and eat at small round tables. Afterwards, enjoy lunch yourself at a local restaurant where you can try some of Myanmar's most popular cuisine. Continue on to the Shwemawdaw Pagoda, one of the most venerated pagodas in Myanmar. Take in views of the impressive 375 foot high structure and learn about the excavation and restoration of Kanbawzathadi, the palace of the famous King Bayint Naung. Stroll through the Bumble Bee Throne Hall (probably used as the king’s sleeping quarters), the Royal Audience Hall, the Teak-post Museum, which displays teak-posts found from Kambawzathadi palace site excavation, and the unique, octagonal-shaped Hanthawaddy Archaeological Museum. Finally, see Shwethalyaung Reclining Pagoda and return to your hotel in Yangon.
