Chauktatgyi Paya and Reclining Buddha, Yangon Myanmar, Yangon and Around
This private afternoon tour covers some of Yangon’s richest and most beautiful religious and cultural sights. Begin by visiting the stunning Chaukhtatgyi Pagoda with its enormous 65-metre long reclining Buddha, its serene countenance adorned with a beautiful jewel-encrusted crown. Continue on to the Kaba Aye Pagoda complex, a newer construction from 1952 with a 36-metre high stupa. Right next door, the Maha Pasana Guha (also known as the Great Cave) once hosted the 6th Buddhist council, a symbolic nod to the first Buddhist council that met following Buddha’s passing into Nirvana 2.5 millennia ago.

Why not give us a call
We enjoyed a 3 week trip exploring both the well known places as well as the less developed areas. We also balanced the trip with a variety of walks and activities as well as time for several half day breaks to relax. The Myanmar people are incredibly friendly and welcoming. The colours of the country are outstanding, wonderful dusty landscapes with rice fields and palm trees as well as so many amazing pagodas rich in colour and symbolism. Our best parts were the less well known places but Lake Inle and Bagan are must do places and are still not overrun by tourists. Experience Travel Group tailored a trip for our needs and knew how to do so and suggest appropriate hotels and means of travel.
