After breakfast, set off for a day of living like a local in Yangon. EmeraldPLUS: Board the slow moving Circle Train for a taste of local life before visiting a local market, home to colourful stalls, friendly shopkeepers and busy shoppers purchasing their daily essentials. Visit the vibrant Chinatown area to witness noodle and rice paper making. Following your included lunch, visit the Kandawgyi Park and see the glittering Karaweik barge, a replica of the royal barge with views across the vast lake. Finish your day at the Shwedagon Pagoda, the most revered Buddhist temple in Myanmar. Marvel at the breath-taking views of the golden stupa, some 99 metres tall and surrounded by 64 smaller stupas. Your evening is at leisure.
Please note: It has just been announced that the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon will be undergoing renovations to its main stupa between October 2018 and March 2019. As such, the main stupa will be covered by scaffolding which will obscure the view of the main temple from all angles.
