Daily Itinerary
Day 1 Arrival in Yangon

Upon arrival at the airport, our tour guide will meet you with a welcome signboard and transfer you to the hotel for check in. You’ll first enjoy the city circular train ride, then visit Chaukhtatkyi Pagoda featuring a 70-metres reclining Buddha statue, and National Museum  with extensive collection of ancient artifacts, art works and historic memorabilia on display in 14 halls in a splendid five-storey building.

Continue to tour Yangon and return to your hotel for a break at around 4:00PM. You will be picked up at 5:30pm to head to the Great Shwedagone Pagoda built as the most prominent monument in Yangon which dominates the sky with golden flash, giant spires and holy relics.

Day 2 Yangon - Bago - Kyaikhto( Breakfast )

After breakfast at hotel, enjoy a morning drive to Kyaikhtiyo (185km, 4 hours). En route visit at Bago, 28-metre-high huge Buddha Image of Kyaikpun Pagoda, the palace of King Bayinnaung is some of the places of interests.

Proceed to Kyaikhtiyo which is a major pilgrimage site for Buddhists. From the base camp (Kinpun Sakan) take a car ride up to Rathedaung (45 minutes) and then walk up to the Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda (45 minutes), which houses the famous "Golden Rock", a huge boulder precariously perched on the edge of a cliff face seemingly defying gravity. It is believed that Buddha's hair is precisely placed on the Golden Rock stupa thereby keeping its fine balance. Appreciate the panoramic view and walk back to the camp.

Stay overnight at hotel in Golden Rock.
