Itinerary

Yangon Full Day

07:45 A.M. pick up from your hotel. Start your full day sightseeing by driving through the colonial style building downtown, as well as Chinatown, the Indian quarter and photo stop at City Hall & the Sule Pagoda with its golden chedi – a useful landmark in downtown Yangon.

Then, take a walk along Yangon River to see the busy harbor area, from where ferries leave for Pathein in the Delta and for upcountry towns along the Ayeyarwady River.

A visit will be also made to the old Ministers' Office on Theinphyu Road. The old Ministers' Office, formerly The Secretariat Building is built in the late 19th century. The structure is more than 120 years old and it sits at the heart of the city. The Victorian style building served the British seat of government for Myanmar until its independence in 1948. It was where General Aung San and 6 cabinet ministers were assassinated by political rivals on 19 July 1947, now commemorated as Burmese Martyrs' Day.

This historic building is closed for several years and it is now under restoration to transform into a museum and offices. It is also open to public for observation. Secretariat building renovation tour includes 45 minutes guided tour inside the buildings. The tour takes you back in time with the very first Parliament where democracy of Myanmar was conceived, takes you to the place where the fallen heroes (Martyrs) were assassinated, and lets you walk among the lush garden surrounded by grandeur of Victorian architecture restored back to its former glory.

The Secretariat Building is a historic landmark in Yangon which exemplifies imposing and defensive Victorian-colonial architecture and it’s currently on the Yangon City Heritage list.

Guided Renovation Tours are now available at the Secretariat Building as per below timetable:
Monday to Friday: 09:30 A.M, 11: 30 A.M, 01:30 P.M, 03:30 P.M
