Overview

Discover Thanlyin (formerly known as Syriam) on a private day trip from Yangon. Experience the slow pace of life in this port city where medieval trade merchants made use of its strategic riverside location. Wander the town streets with your personal guide, including a boat ride to Yele Paya temple near Kyauktan. Round-trip hotel transport and entrance fee included.
  • 5.5-hour tour of Syriam (Thanlyin) with a personal guide
  • Visit the port city and ride a boat to Yele Paya temple
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off by private vehicle
  • Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
Departing from your Yangon hotel in the morning, set off by private vehicle for Syriam (Thanlyin), a former capital of Myanmar located about 1.5 hours away. While exploring the sleepy 15th-century port town with your personal guide, you'll learn about the British, Portuguese, French, and East Indian influences and its history as a merchant city. 
Soak up the pleasant atmosphere where tree-lined roads and universities offer a glimpse of local life. Then head to Yele Paya, a unique temple located on an islet in the middle of the Yangon River near the town of Kyauktan and accessible by local ferry. If you wish, feed the giant catfish swimming around the island (own expense). 
You can purchase lunch (not included) and spend time at a riverside market then visit two more pagodas before the drive back to Yangon in mid-afternoon.
