Yangon to Bago Tour – 1 Day
This one day Yangon – Bago day trip takes you from the enchanting former capital city of Myanmar to the wonders of Bago (also known as Pegu) the capital of the Mon Kingdom in the 16th century. In addition to the main historical and Buddhist pagodas, we also visit a local Mon weaving community, explore the town market and see the Allied War Cemetery.


  • Visiting Kya Khet Waii monastery, Shwemawdaw Pagoda,  Shwe Tha Lyaung Buddha, Allied War Cemetery

Tour Itinerary

Your Bago day trip from Yangon starts at the hotel in Yangon. After a 2-hour drive (about 84 kilometers), arrive in Bago, the center of the Mon Kingdom of Lower Myanmar during the 15th century. Begin your Bago’s sightseeing in the charming Kya Khet Waii monastery, an eminent teaching center for hundreds of monks from neighboring regions to study Buddhism. You will have ample time to observe when the monks walk mindfully in procession for their last meal of the day.


Next, continue heading to the over a thousand years old Mon-style Shwemawdaw Pagoda with its spire taller than the Shwedagon Pagoda and can be seen from around 10 kilometers. After lunch at a simple local restaurant, you will continue sightseeing with the 55-meter long reclining Shwe Tha Lyaung Buddha, which is among one of the country’s most impressive images and the four giant Buddha images at Kyaik Pun Pagoda.


After visiting a ‘Mon’ weaving and handicraft village producing woven bamboo wares, return to Yangon to visit an Allied War Cemetery near Htauk Kyan and a “Nat” tree shrine on the way back. Your day trip to Bago from Yangon ends at your hotel in Yangon.
