Behind Closed Doors Tour of Old Yangon

Central Yangon resembles something from a century ago. The name has changed from Rangoon to Yangon, yet the buildings remain the same and a sense of old-world grandeur lives on. You will have exclusive access to heritage buildings that are normally closed to visitors.

Historic townhouses are crumbling slowly yet the slow decay only adds to the charm. For Yangon is no longer a colonial enclave, but the quintessence of modern Myanmar life. Atmospheric street life dazzles, with stalls and food carts spilling their wares beneath ornate balconies. 

Scents from India and China mingle with dreams of afternoon high tea. It’s the country in a nutshell, a vibrant mix of everything, seemingly frozen in the late 19th century.

Religious icons also impress and you watch how sunset bounces off the golden leaf of Shwedagon Pagoda, the country’s modern ode to Buddhism.
