About your tour

Kick off from the central Mahabandoola Garden where your guide will take you to the first stop – grilled fish barbequed over hot charcoal and served with lime and tamarind dipping sauces. As you amble up through the backstreets of Old Yangon on your tour, you’ll dive into a famous noodle house famed for its authentic dishes from Shan province.

You’ll start to see a marked difference in the dishes as you enter Yangon’s Little India. En route though the bustling neighborhood, you’ll make several stops to try hot, lightly spiced samosas, crisp dosas best dipped into a variety of pickles and curries and a famed Bengali sweet shop.

Your next stop on our Yangon tour is Chinatown, a vibrant district with a fascinating history. It’s not short of places to eat, but not all are made equal. You’ll make stops at old Chinese bakeries, 3rd generation soup houses, a lively tea house for bao buns and springs runs and much more. End with cold Myanmar beer and barbecued skewers along the famed 19th street.
