Kingdom Of Hanthawaddy: Excursion To Bago From Yangon 9 hours

  • Private tour
  • Solo friendly
  • Family friendly

Bago houses a large number of interesting and historically-important sights including some of the most remarkable Buddhist monasteries in the country. Join this excursion from Yangon to learn about the Hanthawaddy Kingdom.

You get picked up at your hotel in Yangon to visit the former capital of Bago. On the way, you stop by the Taukkyan War Cemetery, a monument for allied soldiers from the British Commonwealth who died in battle in Burma during the Second World War.

The first sight you visit is the Shwemawdaw Pagoda, often referred to as the "Golden God Temple". This pagoda is the tallest pagoda in the country, although the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon normally receives those credits.

Continue to the Shwethalyaung Pagoda, a reclining Buddha, which has a length of 55 meters. Myanmar people say about the Buddha image, that it represents Buddha in a 'relaxing' mode.

After that, visit the Kanbawzathadi Palace, built for King Bayinnaung in 1556. The palace was rebuilt following the original design, based on knowledge gained from excavations and the original drawings of the building. There are several reproductions on display, like a replica of the King’s golden coach.

Your last stop of the tour is the Kyaikpun Pagoda on the way back to Yangon. There is a small Buddhist monastery, known for its four towering images of the Buddha, often visible from a far distance. The images, facing each other’s back, represent the four Buddhas that have reached Nirvana.
