Yangon - excursions and day trips

Whether you're traveling on a budget or are in search of a new adventure, Yangon - excursions and day trips can help you get the most out of your trip. The city has a variety of attractions, from historical monuments to quaint colonial architecture to the beautiful landscapes of the Irrawaddy River.

The downtown area of Yangon is full of colonial structures built by the British. The area also features Burmese culture and street markets. It's an ideal place to find traditional pagodas covered in gold leaf and roof top cocktails. There are over 250 bus lines that operate in the city. The buses run on CNG fuel and fares range from 40 Ks to 120 Ks.

If you're looking for a relaxing day trip, you might want to consider a boat ride on the Irrawaddy River. The journey is enjoyable and rewarding. You'll pass through the Irrawaddy's picturesque banks, lined with colorful boats. If you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of some rare animals.


If you're interested in exploring the culture and lifestyle of the people in Myanmar, you'll want to visit the local markets. You'll see the different products and learn about the different ethnic groups. Then, you can take a trishaw ride through the backstreets of Dala, a township just outside of the city. You'll encounter Burmese homes and shops, as well as fishing families.

A popular day trip from Yangon is a visit to the Kyaiktiyo Pagoda. This pagoda is a temple with a mammoth golden rock that rests on a strand of Buddha's hair. It offers panoramic views of the countryside.

If you're not into hiking, you can also take a day trip to the Phu Gyi Reservoir. The artificial dam is located in Hmawbi, a small town about 35 kilometers southeast of the city. The park is home to a huge number of birds and other animals. There are safaris available for those who wish to spot the animals.


If you're staying in a hotel, a private tour can be arranged. It includes round-trip transport, accommodation and tickets. The tour can be scheduled to suit your schedule and will include a local lunch. If you prefer, you can opt for a tour that leaves early in the morning, with pickup from your hotel.

If you're interested in a tour that explores the cultural and religious highlights of Myanmar, you should look into a five-day trip. You'll have time to explore the country's capital, Yangon, as well as Inle Lake, Shan State, and Bagan. These destinations are perfect for family vacations or a honeymoon. The five-day tour also includes interaction with ethnic groups in Pindaya and a day trekking in the highlands.

The most popular day trips from Yangon are a visit to the Shwedagon Pagoda, a Chinatown tour, a cycling ride along Inle Lake, and a trip to a pagoda. You can choose from a range of multi-day tours or book a private tour.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.
