The Yangon to Bago day trip offers the itinerary of 1-day Yangon-Bago-Yangon, which is suitable for travelers who don’t have much time. Visiting some particular religious attractions in Yangon, you will have an adequate look at this country’s religion and culture as well as rhythm of the peaceful Bago town.

Yangon - Bago - Yangon

At 8:00 AM, we will pick you up from your hotel to start the tour.

After breakfast a 2-hr drive (80kms) to the northwest of Yangon will bring you to Bago that was the central city of the Mon Kingdom of Lower Myanmar during the 15th century.

You’ll stopover at Kha Khat Wain Monastery where hundreds of monks are dedicated to following Buddha’s teachings.

There are also four mammoth Buddha images seated in the open-air surroundings of Kyaikpun pagoda (also constructed by the Mon king ‘Damazedi’ in 1476 A.D).

Afterwards we’ll continue on to the energetic Bago local market as well as Shwemawdaw Pagoda, one of the most respected shrines in Myanmar. The spire here rises to a height of 114m and is even more impressive than the one at Shwedagon Pagoda.

The gigantic Shwethalyaung reclining Buddha figure which dates back to 9th century is the most realistic and adored of all the reclining images. Make a stop, should you be feeling energetic, to walk to the top of HinTharWaddy temple for a unique perspective of Bago as well as a chance to learn more about the worship of nats  as the temple is home to various nat shrines.

And of course, on the trip back to Yangon you will have an opportunity to visit the Allied War Cemetery located close to Htaukkyan, the final resting place for over 27,000 allied soldiers.

Then, we arrive back at Yangon city in the late afternoon.

End of the Yangon to Bago day trip!
