About the tour

The tour starts with a walk around the colonial building. You will get to see 19th century buildings, which are over 100 years old, and we will go to the Nan Thida Ferry Terminal to cross Yangon River by ferry, while viewing seagulls coming for the food and little boats jumping in the river going against the current.

When arriving at Dala Jetty, we will hop on bikes (traveler needs to pay bike fees and ferry fees), which are organized for you and we will start exploring all the hidden places. You will see the local life while visiting a fishermen village, so be prepared to be amazed at the sights. You will also see the Buddhist temples, and also the local industry such as food making, candles and the recycling project of Dala.

In this bike tour you will interact with local people, participate in local ceremonies if you are lucky, and of course be like a local.

I absolutely loved the tour. The guide was really good and you get the opportunity to see a different side of Yangon. You get enough water and information. Would 100% recommend, one of the best things I did in Yangon.

Me (Dutch, 25) and my friend (Swiss, 23) really enjoyed the cycling tour through the little villages just over the Yangon river. It was very impressive to see how the people live there. The locals were very friendly toward us, as were the tourguides. They would look after us and share a lot of information about the surroundings and local habits. Would definitely recommend to do this tour!

Myo was awesome! He explained some history and culture. Tour took around an hour and ended with local tea and some casual conversation. Even if it was raining I had a nice time.
