    What to Expect
    Make your way to the meeting point in central Yangon to join your guide for your evening walking tour, which covers a little more than 1 mile (2 km) with plenty of stops for snacks, shopping and photo ops.

    Start by strolling down bustling Shwe Bontha Street, where people sell secondhand goods such as electronics, gold jewelry, eyeglasses, books, clothing and more. Enjoy a moment of respite from the market as you check out a Buddhist temple and a Hindu temple on the way to Chinatown, and then stop for a refreshing drink — perhaps green tea at a local tea shop or fresh sugarcane juice from a roadside stall.

    Nearby, enjoy great photo ops at a temple decorated with mythological scenes, and then continue cruising through narrow alleys full of boutiques and antique shops; if anything catches your eye, your guide can help you to bargain like a local. Next up, hit a roadside market on 19th Street where stalls are piled with fruit, vegetables, fresh seafood and local delicacies. Vendors work their magic cooking tasty nibbles on charcoal grills, resulting in all sorts of meats, veggies and marinades to sample. This is the hub of Yangon’s street food scene, with lots of outdoor seating and locals eating dinner.

    Your guide will choose some favorite snacks and beer to share with you as you wind down your walking tour and hear about Myanmar’s food culture. You'll end on 19th Street, where you can remain on your own, if you wish.

    This was a bit of both looking around the night markets and food stalls as well as a city tour. The guide (sorry I forgot your name) met us in Independence Square and explained to us the surrounding buildings and the history behind them before taking us through a food market,

    This was a really good way to start a trip here alone in Yangon. Got an overview of local food as well as how to walk the city using the grid system, the food was more than enough to eat and nice to have a beer at the end. Guide Myat was very nice and helpful. I tried some food

    I decided to take this tour on my first day in Yangon (and Myanmar), as I thought it would be a good way to get a feel for the place and also get my bearings. The tour starts at the independence monument, which is very impressive. Myo, my guide, told me the history of the

    A great way to experience colonial Yangon, as well as the full range of sights, smells, tastes and sounds while exercising your legs, the tour went from the main square near city hall to the 19th Street Chinatown restaurant Anthony Bourdain helped make famous ! Our young guide
