After the pagoda visit, in Yangon downtown it’s unique with its vibrant and colorful streets, hectic open-air markets, some of the friendliest urbanites and much of its colonial-era architecture still standing. You find one of Asia’s most impressive collections of late nineteenth and early twentieth-century buildings. All these buildings are almost unique for today’s world. Your guide will walk you through the back streets in slow pace and explain you the history of each building. As well as seeing hidden markets, sidewalks shops, some art galleries, old books selling shops and ways of life of the people on the vibrant streets or sitting at local tea house.

After 2 hours driver from Bago, we’ll arrive to Kyaikhto and the base camp where to take an open truck (45-mins up hill) to Golden Rock.  Main luggage can be kept at the hotel if you’re staying at the hotel near base camp or in the car. Only take a back pack to take all your personal belongings and important things such as cash, passports and etc.Golden Rock (Kayiktiyo) is one the most important pilgrimage sites for Myanmar Buddhist and maybe one of the strangest sites (miracle) for foreign visitors. A rock (gold gilded) with a small stupa (15th feet) built on top of it, is balancing on the edge of a mountain and looks as if it could tumble down into the ravine below at any moment. Buddhist believe due to some hairs of Buddha brought by a holy hermit enshrined into that hermit’s head shape rock prevent the rock from falling.  People who want to get a hiking can do there and the site can be reached after a short walk (1.5 hours from Hermit Hill base camp or a long walk (about 6-7 hours from the first base camp. Surrounding the Golden Rock are many local souvenirs shops, pagoda accessories selling shops and shops selling Burmese traditional medicinal products made off indigenous animals found by the hunters living in the jungle in this region.
