Around 4 pm, you will be picked up at your hotel for the start of your Yangon by Night tour. Transfer to the jetty where you will board a boat for a 1.5 hour evening cruise on the Yangon River. Enjoy the scenes of river life- with fishermen, local ferries and seagulls passing by- as the sun begins to set. We will offer a choice of snacks, soft drink or water, local beer and liquor is available on client’s own account.

Returning to dry land, take a local trishaw through the streets toward the illuminated Sule Paya. This way of travelling is fabulous in the evening, passing the colorful street stalls and illuminated colonial buildings of downtown.

We’ll arrive to Chinatown. This neighborhood is extremely lively in the evening and we’ll take a short walking tour along 19th Street, famous for its lively barbeque restaurants. Dozens of vendors set up satay stalls and other snack stalls here in the evening and it is a popular spot for locals to gather, have a drink and chat with friends. We’ll enjoy a dinner of delicious grilled meats, seafood and vegetable dishes with traditional dipping sauces and side dishes.

Finally we take you to a live music venue for a post-dinner drink. Depending on your interests or the night of the week we recommend My Garden which has live music, draft beers and is popular with groups of young Burmese. If it is a Wednesday or Friday night and you are seeking something a bit more western, check out 50th Street- the expat hangout- which has a band on these nights.
