Due to the increased traffic in recent years, we no longer ride in Yangon City. That’s why it had better that we’ll spend a relaxing morning before we transfer to the airport for our one-hour flight to Yangon.

In the afternoon, visit the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda. We should visit this pagoda in the afternoon because we will not miss the best view of the Pagoda in sunset’s shine. Then, stroll to the downtown area, historic sites, and shopping areas, before we celebrate our farewell dinner at one of the city’s popular local restaurants.
