4 days Glittering Golden Rock Tour

The Golden Rock & Yangon tour is a great way to extend your Myanmar tour and experience the scenery and life in the area. At this site, a small pagoda stands on a large golden rock that appears to be falling off a cliff. Suprisingly, on the edge of the cliff, the rock balances itself and it seems like it can drop down in the valley underneath it at any time. Moreover, the Shwethalyaung Buddha in Bago, one of the largest reclining will be visited.

DAY 1

Yangon Arrival & City tour

Upon your arrival in Yangon, welcome by our tour guide and transferred to your hotel for check-in. Enjoy private tour and drive through downtown to explore the city centre and its fabulous mix of architecture and sites. The streets are filled with historical buildings many of which have a faded colonial charm not seen elsewhere in Asia. You’ll start at the post office – a lovely historic building, passing by Strand Hotel, Mahabandoola Garden and Independence Monument along the way. Then visit famous Chauk Htat Kyi, home to a 70-meter long reclining Buddha. The feet of the statue carved with traditional symbols and often many locals gathering to pay homage and pray. Photo stop at the Karaweik Hall royal floating barge. Nothing will prepare you for Shwedagon Pagoda, with its glittering gold stupa. At the pagoda observe local pilgrims and monks offering their devotions and enjoy the amazing sunset view at Shwedagon pagoda. Read more

Cheryl Brodsky, United States

We should be thanking you for one of the best 3 day trips we’ve taken. We loved everything about Bagan and we loved all that we did in Yangon. Our guide Soe Yee was a real delight. He was warm, knowledgeable and knew how to work the system to get things done. Our group really loved him and he has our highest recommendation. Thank you for all your efforts. Your organisation was outstanding. We had been warned that in a country like Myanmar we should be prepared for glitches in our travel but our travel was as smooth and problem free as it could have been. I hope to return to Myanmar in the future to see more of your fascinating country and rest assured we will use Myanmar Shalom to plan our trip. Keep up the great work you are doing and I trust that our paths will cross again soon. Shalom Read more

Thank you for all your help with organizing our recent trip to Myanmar. I usually would do the trip planning myself, however your professional advice, itinerary, tour cost and excellent communication has made me think again. The trip was fabulous! Our guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Truly a special country with incredible sights to behold. I hope more and more people travel to Myanmar as the real gems are its people. Read more

Merton Zatman, United Kingdom

What a wonderful experience we had during our Myanmar visit, something that we never cease talking about to our friends. We are fortunate to have travelled to many countries in all parts of the world, but nothing even begins to equal the wonder and beauty of our visit to Myanmar, truly an unforgettable experience. So much of our enjoyment was a result of the care and planning of Myanmar Shalom and of the Samuels, both Sammy and Moshe, and of their excellent team of guides who so quickly became our friends. Thank you so much for all that you did for us. Read more
