Tipping Info

If you are happy with the services provided by your local guide and driver, a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations.

Itinerary

Go beyond the city centre and see a real cross-section of life in Yangon. Hop on the slow train for a unique Yangon city tour that will allow you to observe the lively and colourful happenings of the local urban lifestyle.
From our meeting point, we’ll head to the Central Railway Station to catch the circular train, a commuter rail network that services the Yangon Metropolitan Area. This 45.9 kilometer, 39-station loop connects several satellite towns and suburban areas, and is one of the best ways to discover the real Yangon.
The entire loop takes about three hours to complete, but we’ll be hopping off at Da Nyin Gone Station to visit a lively local market. We’ll spend about 45 minutes wandering through the stalls, meeting vendors, and observing the local way of life in Yangon. You’ll learn about the commodities that are basic necessities for life here, and perhaps grab a coffee or tea from one of the local shops.
Our Yangon tour will continue as we get back on the train and head for downtown, where we’ll walk through Little India and Chinatown, two fabulously diverse and vibrant Yangon neighbourhoods. Here, we’ll enjoy a local tea on the street corner, where we’ll participate in a favourite local pastime – people-watching.
By now you’ll have a full taste of Yangon, near and far, including its impressive colonial and spiritual heritage, evident throughout the city and its suburbs. If you're looking for a more unique way to tour Yangon, we're pretty sure this is it.
