Arrive in Yangon and meet us in the hotel lobby at 16:00 to get to know your fellow travelers. (Note: Our meeting time might change based on the estimated time of the sunset.) We’ll head together to Shwedagon Pagoda, Myanmar’s holiest site—maybe you’ve heard of it? You’ll explore this massive Buddhist monument with a local guide as the sun begins to set. Seeing the 99-meter-tall, gold-gilded central stupa will be your first introduction to the deep spirituality of Myanmar—and what an introduction it is.
Tonight, join us for a Burmese-style dinner at a local restaurant.
