Yangon Walking Tour on the Blessing Trail
Your guide and driver will greet you at the hotel to transfer you to the start point for your ‘On The Blessings Trail’ walking tour through the downtown streets. Although Myanmar is predominately Buddhist, there are several forms of religion practiced in the country most of which were introduced by immigrant populations. Exploring the diverse religions in downtown Yangon provides insight into the rich tapestry of cultures in Myanmar and unveils a side of the city rarely explored by tourists.
We start at Kheng Hock Keong Temple, Chinatown’s largest temple, and continue walking our way through western downtown. Along the way we will visit mosques, churches, Hindu temples and even a synagogue before finishing at Sule Paya.
Your guide will explain the rich diversity of the religions in Yangon and teach you about offerings and blessings in each place of worship. Beyond the major regions, you’ll also discover local Burmese traditions such as ancestor worship, Nat worship, astrology and even the lottery!
While walking through this lively section of town we’ll also stumble upon local markets selling everything from fresh produce to temple offerings to traditional medicine. We’ll sit and enjoy tea on a leafy side street, sampling local snacks and meet friendly locals.
- The walk covers around 2.5-3 kilometers with plenty of stops along the way. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and bring sunscreen and/or a hat.
- A car can be arranged for the tour upon request.
- We recommend doing this tour in the morning as the markets are at their most vibrant and the temperatures are cooler.
