Burma Holidays - Sule Pagoda, Yangon

Your Yangon sightseeing begins in the colonial-style city centre, where you will visit the beautiful Sule Pagoda, dating back over 2,000 years, an attractive golden temple which unusually sits in the middle of one of the city's main roundabouts.  Take a look at the City Hall and the downtown section to see colonial era buildings, and stop for a photo at the well-known Karaweik Hall (bottom), a 'hamsa-bird-shaped' floating barge (now a restaurant) on the Kandawgyi Lake before walking through the famous Bogyoke Aung San market (formerly known as Scott market); this enormous market, which is more than 70 years old, has a wide variety of souvenirs - lacquerware (pictured), Shan shoulder bags, slippers, silks - but is also somewhere to enjoy the happy atmosphere and to haggle alongside local shoppers (NB. the market is closed on Mondays and public holidays).
