Overview
Exploring Yangon without a guide may mean skimming the city’s surface—missing out on its key places, way of life, and off-the-beaten-track neighborhoods. Delve deeper on a small-group tour that takes you on Yangon’s circular train line, with a guide to explain local life and culture. Pass through often-overlooked districts, stop to visit a local market, savor lunch at a Burmese restaurant, and disembark downtown to see St. Mary’s Cathedral.
