On your arrival at Yangon International Airport, make your own way to the arrivals hall where you´ll be greeted by our English-speaking guide and will start your introductory tour through Yangon City. The best arrival time is before 9:00 in the morning. Please set your travel arrangements accordingly or book our optional pre-night stay in Yangon. Yangon is Myanmar´s largest city and one of the most exciting spots in the country as a former political exile, where financial specialists and foreign travellers run in. As Myanmar´s business and cultural hub, reflects the most the changes that occurred since the country reopen the borders. There's a rash of new eateries, bars and shops. We will stop for a lunch at the local restaurant (own expenses) and then we´ll continue to Kandawgyi Nature Park - a scenic park with a lovely view of the famous Kandaweyi Lake & Karaweik Royal Barge.
