Formerly named Rangoon, Yangon is home to the holiest of all shrines at Shwedagon Paya, which glitters with gold and precious gems and is said to contain 8 hairs of the Buddha.

Day 3 Bagan

Dating back to the 11th and 12th centuries, the ancient religious centre of Bagan features countless brick and gilded temples which dot the skyline in many shapes and forms.

After a tour of the handicraft workshops, watch the puppets come to life in a traditional marionette show.
