Maha Bandula Rd, Yangon, Myanmar

The basics

Designed by prominent Burmese architect U Tin, Yangon City Hall was completed in 1936. A well-balanced blend of western and local architectural styles, the elegant white building features a classic colonial build combined with traditional Burmese tiered roofs and intricately ornamented pillars and arches. It’s listed on the Yangon City Heritage List.

Most Yangon city sightseeing tours include a stop here, along with nearby attractions such as Sule Pagoda, the High Court, and Independence Monument and Park. For a more personalized experience, book a private or small-group tour. Add on a trishaw ride for a taste of local life.

Great Tour!
I had an absolutely amazing day with Karen! She did a fantastic job of explaining everything and showing me the city and culture! I definitely wouldn't have come to see some of these places on my own. Definitely recommend!

Yangon Full Day City Tour
What an amazing day - really! Our guide was so knowledgable about all aspects of Yangon and Myanmar history so it was really refreshing to get an in depth understanding of the country, people and culture. The itinerary was also relatively flexible and we started off the day with breakfast. The driver and guide were really amazing and took such good care of me - one of the best day tours I've been on!

Yangon Full Day City Tour
My friend and I only had one day in Yangon before we had to fly out that evening to Singapore. Our guide, Karen, was the best guide we've had all vacation in Myanmar! She was knowledgeable, friendly, and ensured that we saw everything that we needed to see in Yangon. We had a great time. Definitely ask for Karen if you book this tour!

Yangon Full Day City Tour
The itinerary for the whole day covered all the major attractions and more. There was even a short train ride in the city circle train. A car took us everywhere and the driver was extremely polite. My guide Karen who met me at the hotel lobby, was very well informed. She offered a lot of information about things to do in Yangon and about local life. She also took me to a local restaurant that was clean and had great local food. She took pains to explain the various dishes. Recommend this one! It was a fun evening. Our guide Kalika was very friendly and took the group on a great tour where we got to taste different local dishes and snacks.She also gave a lot of information about the culture. Definitely a must do activity.

A wonderful experience

Yangon Full Day City Tour
The tour we had around Yangon was definitely among the best city tours we have ever had. Not only did we get a real image of the city, with its cultural and historical aspects, but we also experienced travelling by the local train, seeing interesting places and feeling the pulse of Yangon.All the parts of the journey in time and space offered us a complex view of the city.. Our wonderful guide, Khatar Aung, made all this possible. Very professional, knowledgeable, nice, friendly, and considerate, speaking good English, she was the perfect guide on a wonderful and complete city tour. Everything was prepared to the smallest detail for our comfort (e.g.wet tissues to clean our feet, readiness to help at any time) Also, there was no time pressure, which made us feel really spoilt. A great tour, well worth the time and money.
