YANGON SIGHTSEEING TOUR BY NIGHT TO MARKETS
Around 4 pm, you will be picked up at your hotel for the start of your Yangon by Night tour. A short transfer will take you to Lanthit Oil Filling jetty (Near Hledan Bridge -No.2) where you will board a boat for a 1.5 hour evening cruise on the Yangon River. Enjoy the scenes of river life- with fishermen, local ferries and seagulls passing by- as the sun begins to set. Free flow local beer and local rum sours are severed, or we will offer a choice of soft drink or water.

Returning to dry land, local trishaws will be waiting to take you on a short tour of downtown. You’ll travel along Strand Road and stop near Sule Paya for photos of the illuminated stupa before continuing on to 19th Street in the heart of China Town. Chinatown is a lively place in the evening and we’ll take a short walking tour along 19th Street and its environs. Dozens of vendors set up satay stalls and other snack stalls here in the evening and it is a popular spot for locals to gather, have a drink and chat with friends. Sample some of the local treats as we walk through the bustling streets.
Around 19.30, we’ll transfer by car to a restaurant of your choice (meal and drinks not included). We highly recommend a local Barbeque Restaurant where you can enjoy delicious grilled meats, seafood and vegetable dishes with traditional dipping sauces and side dishes. The atmosphere is often very lively, with draft beer being served and often karaoke or Burmese music being played. (Other options include fine French dining at La Planteur, Burmese and other Asian dishes at Monsoon or Chinese dishes at White Rice)
Finally we take you to Mr Guitar for a post-dinner drink. Mr Guitar is one of Yangon’s most iconic bars, established years ago by Nay Myo Say, a famous Burmese musician and artist. The classy yet casual bar features live music and draws a crowd of hip locals and expatriates nightly.
After your night out on the town, your guide and driver will transfer you back to your hotel. (please note: guide and driver available until 11PM. After that time we will arrange for taxi transfer at client’s expense)
** This tour can also be arranged without a boat cruise, starting instead at 18.00 with a trishaw ride. Please ask for more details.
