Things to Do

In July, doing some indoor activities instead of outdoor activities is recommended. For instance, you can visit local markets, watch a traditional puppet show, or spend some time on a circular train to gain an insight into the locals' lifestyle.

1. Have a Real Taste of Yangon

Yangon Circular Train offers you a loop trip around Yangon and you can experience a real taste of Yangon, which you won't see by visiting pagodas, malls, or parks. There are lots of things for you to see from the windows, such as farms, houses, and local markets, while the train passes through various districts in Yangon.

On the train, you can also see how the locals travel. Farmers use it daily to get to markets. Others take all types of fruits and vegetables on the train to sell, and you can buy them at a low price. It feels as though the local market has come to you. The most interesting part is that women balance big trays on their heads as the train moves on slowly, which reflects the different, authentic daily life of the Burmese.

Ticket fare: 200 kyats
Recommended length of visit:2–3 hours
Beware: The train might not be as comfortable as you imagined, but it is well worth a visit. Getting there early is recommended in case the train gets too crowded.

2. Learn More About Myanmar’s History

Have you ever wanted to learn more about Burmese art, history, and culture? Then visit the National Museum in Yangon! It is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip.

Thousands of collections of ancient artifacts, ornaments, paintings, and historic memorabilia are displayed in the five-story museum, giving an overall impression of Myanmar. All the descriptions are in English, and you can also ask for a volunteer guide to show you around. They speak fluent English.

Entrance fee: US$5 or 5,000 kyats
Recommended length of visit: 3 hours
Be aware: The museum closes at 4pm; please make sure that you have enough time to tour the whole building before you set off.

3. Bogyoke Aung San Museum

General Aung San, the 'father of Burmese independence', lived in Bogyoke Aung San Museum before his assassination. And Aung San Suu Kyi, who won the Nobel Peace Prize, spent her childhood there. At this small, well-maintained museum, the list of books that he read is displayed as well as photos from various periods of his life and other personal items.

It is worth mentioning that there is a beautiful garden, and it has a bronze statue of Aung San there. While you are looking around the museum, you will feel like the history is coming alive.

Entrance fee: US$5 or 5,000 kyats
Recommended length of visit: 2 hours
Be aware: It is quite a distance from the downtown area. Visiting the museum in the morning is recommended.

4.Watch a Traditional Culture Show

Unlike the grand, buffet show presented in Karaweik Palace, Htwe Oo Myanmar Puppet Theater will surprise you out of the blue. As a dying traditional art in Myanmar, you should definitely go and watch a performance while you still have the chance.

The theater is a family-run business, and its surrounding is a quiet and comfortable place. Before the show begins, the owner explains the history of puppetry, as well as some of Myanmar’s culture. Puppeteers make these puppets come to life with their skillful techniques.

In the middle of the show, the puppeteers’ arms are revealed so that the audience can see how they manipulate the puppets. After the show, you can take pictures and play with the puppets at no extra cost.

Entrance fee: about US$8
Recommended length of visit: 2 hours
Be aware: The location is a bit out-of-the-way; it is better to make a reservation with the owner first.
