Ancient Bago Private Tour

Experience the rich history, culture and traditions of the Ancient Capital of Bago on a comfortable private tour with an experienced English speaking tour guide, private vehicle & driver. Visit the beautifully landscaped World War 2 Cemetery in Taukkyan.

Your tour guide will meet you at the hotel in Yangon at 8:00am. Head out to visit the Ancient City of Bago (2-hour drive). Bago is a former Royal Capital of the Mon Kingdom. On the way, stop at the Taukkyan War Cemetery. The cemetery, which is the resting place for over 27,000 Allied World War 2 soldiers, is a beautifully landscaped area and a peaceful getaway from bustling Yangon.

 

Arrive at Bago and explore the city sights such as:

  • (Optional) Kyaly Khat Wai Monastery, which is one of the largest monasteries in Myanmar. You can observe the daily life of monks including a lunch procession at 10:30am.
  • The Shwemawdaw Pagoda, which is 376ft high and can even be seen from outside the city of Bago.
  • The Kanbawzathadi Palace, the original palace of Bago built in 1556.
  • The Shwethalyaung Buddha, a 180ft long and 53ft high reclining statue of the Buddha.
  • The Snake Monastery, which houses a 17ft long Python who is believed by legend to be over 125 years old. The locals believe that the python is a reincarnation of a famous monk.
  • The Kyaik Pun Pagoda, which was built in 1476 and consists of four 100ft sitting Buddha statues.

 

In the evening, drive back to Yangon (2-hour drive). You will be dropped off at the hotel in Yangon by 5:00pm.
