Downtown Delicacies

Yangon, Burma

This exciting tour gives you the chance to sample the street food and night culture of the former Burmese capital. Travelling by trishaw, and passing many of the city’s most recognisable landmarks, you’ll stop at some of the best local dining spots.

This evening tour packs a lot of foodie experiences in. From sampling tea at a local tea shop to trying Burmese snacks such as mont pyar tha let (rice pancake), mont leit pyar (parcels of bean and jaggery) and shwe htamin (golden sticky rice) – it provides an unforgettable insight into Burmese food.  A traditional trishaw is the mode of transport and as you travel from the downtown area, heading past St Mary’s Church, you’ll head into small alleyways to try special dishes. It’s also about sampling Indian food on this tour as during British rule, Yangon was populated with more Indians than Burmese. Following an Indian feast, and a stroll through the Indian quarter, there is time to try some traditional ice cream and sweets. Chinatown offers an alternative experience, with its bustling night market. Bustling 19th Street is just the spot for a nightcap to wind the experience up. All of this makes this short tour a completely unforgettable urban adventure.
