4days 3Nights Golden Rock kyittiyoo trip
l Welcome to the Golden Land Myanmar is located at the crossroads of Asia’s greatest civilizations, China and India. Being the 25th most populated, and 40th largest country in the world, Myanmar extends from the sunny silver beaches and diving island-resorts in the Andaman Sea, right up to the snow- capped mountains of Eastern Himalayas, creating a heterogenous wonder of smiling peoples, precious nature and enriched cultures. National Geographic’s Traveler magazine listed Myanmar as 1 of the top 50 destinations of a life time for every tourist. It is a “must see”. The country’s official name was changed to ‘Myanmar’ since 1989. Capital is now ‘Naypyitaw’. Ancient capital cities of Myanmar had many interesting names: Suvarnabhumi (meaning Golden Land), Amarapura (land of no death), Yadanabon (land of gems), and so on. The earliest prehistoric primates known today is called Pondaung Man, who resided in Pondaung, northern Myanmar about 40 million years ago. Because of that, some call Myanmar, the land of human origin. Brick ruins from a number of Pyu city-states in central Myanmar were from 4,000 BC, somewhat contemporary with Babylonia and Mesopotamia, earliest civilizations of the world. Aside from many city-states, there were 3 wholly-united Myanmar Empires. The First Myanmar Empire was founded after King Anawrahtar in AD 1044, who organized the whole country into a single sovereign. Founding of the Second Myanmar Empire was in AD 1287. Konbaung Dynasty (Third Myanmar Empire) existed between 1752 -1886. Myanmar borders China, India, Thailand, Laos, and Bangladesh. The country stretches 581 miles from east to west and 1,275 miles from north to south. Over 100 national races formed up a nation of approximately 54 million inhabitants. Major nationalities are Kachin, Kayah, Kayin, Chin, Bamar, Mon, Rakhine and Shan.

Yangon City Tour (By Car)
Where to Visit There are famous golden pagodas that glisten amongst the trees and buildings like Shwe Dagon Pagoda, Sule Pagoda, Botataung Pagoda and Chauk Htat Gyi Buddha Image to name a few. Shwe Dagon Pagoda, is the also known to the Buddhist world as the first pagoda on earth. The perimeter of the base is 1,420 feet and its height 326 feet above the platform. It is plated with more than 30 tons of gold, towering 98m over the city. A number of Myanmar kings and queens donated pure gold equivalent of their body weight to this pagoda throughout the history. The tip of the golden cone is set with rubies, diamonds, sapphires and topaz. Around the main stupa are more than 100 smaller pavilions and halls.
Next to the Shwe Dagon is Maha Wizaya Pagoda. There is a very interesting thing if you are into architecture. Similar to the Saint Peter Church of Vatican in Rome and Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, there is a specially-designed hole on the ceiling that only permits the sunlight to inside, only on a single day in a year, the Myanmar New Year Day.
The National Museum is a must. It houses the famous Lion Throne, an amazingly decorated golden throne of the Konbaung Dynasty, which was brought back from The British Museum, England. Many recognize this golden throne as the ‘grandest throne of all monarchs and emperors in the human history’. Priceless ancient artifacts and historic memorabilia are also on display, including ‘golden shoe’ of the last Myanmar King and some royal documents written on gold plates.
Sule Pagoda is the landmark of the heart of Yangon, located near the City Hall . It is said to be 2000-years old. The stupa is 46m high and it is in a strange octagonal shape.
Kaba Aye Pagoda (World Peace Pagoda) was built for the 6th International Buddhist Council in 1954. The World Buddhist Summit was held at the Maha Pasana Cave, near the pagoda.
Botataung Pagoda is said to have the genuine hair relics of Buddha. The pagoda is hollow inside and it is a sort of a mirror-maze inside.
Chauk Htat Gyi Buddha Image is the fourth largest colossal reclining image. Comparing the body-size alone (head-to-toe), you may be surprised to know that it is much bigger than the Statue of Liberty in New York. With an enigmatic smile on His lips, the image itself is 67m long and famous for the 108 distinguishing marks symbols on the soles of his two huge feet. Ngar Htat Gyi Buddha, Koe Htat Gyi Pagoda, Kyauk Taw Gyi Buddha are other famous statues in town. Kyauk Taw Gyi Buddha is the largest marble Buddha in the world sculptured out from a single piece of stone.
Karaweik is a huge 200 feet-long royal barge of 2 golden hintha birds by the Royal Lake, Yangon. It is the symbolic landmark “love & loyalty”, as well as the landmark of the Golden Land (or Suvanabhumi in ancient Pali language). Depicted Hintha bird was the state emblem and flag of Suvanabhumi, capital of the Second Myanmar Empire, which extended throughout southeast Asia in 16th century. These birds reflect sincere love and loyalty, because they mate for total monogamy and greatly attached to each other very much that if one dies the other does not eat until death. Inside this Karaweik royal barge is a classy modern restaurant, with traditional live performance, small scale Myanmar orchestra, and nightly puppet shows.
Kandawgyi Nature Park, is a newly renovated park which is not far from Shwe Dagon. The Karaweik is located in this park. You can see the water fountains, the green sceneries, and the marble elephants.
To do shopping in Yangon, Bogyoke Aung San Market has to be on top of your list. It is situated in the heart of Yangon and was built in 1926. It is one of the preserved colonial buildings, consists of 1641 shops. A lot of souvenir, jewelry, handicraft, sculptures, and tapestry shops can be found there. Vendors in this market are generally easier to communicate in English than other shopping centers.
2Day)Yangon — Bago City tour (By car)
The Allied War Memorial at Htaukkyant is also another tour destination, especially for descendents of the soldiers of the Allied Forces, who died in the World War 2.
Bago is a historical town, situated about 75 kilometers northeast of Yangon, was founded in 573 by two Mon princes, which later developed it into the capital of Second Myanmar Empire.
Shwemawdaw Pagoda, located in the heart of Bago, is even taller than the famous Shwe Dagon Pagoda. Shwethalyaung Buddha is a famous reclining image of a huge Buddha, 180 feet in length and 52.5 feet in height. It was ‘lost’ for many years as it was covered under earth in the scrub jungle, until an Indian contractor dug up the place. The image was restored in 1881. It is also known as “the golden reclining image”.
Kanbawza Thadi Palace was built by King Bayinnaung, the founder of the second Myanmar Empire. According to the drawing record made by a minister ‘Letwe Nawrahta’ there were totally 76 apartments and halls. The replica of the palace was reconstructed not long ago. For ecotourism trips, Moeyingyi and Pho Kyar Camps are popular destinations. The Moeyingyi Wetland Wildlife Sanctuary is located within 40 square mile area where the birds from many parts of the world can be observed.
Pho Kyar Forest Camp is a place having a special privilege of occupying a prime location, a little forest bordering with a stream running in zigzag way within the area and providing an abundance of water supply for local settlement and elephants bathing.
3Day)Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda (By car)
Also well known as the Miracle Golden Rock. This miracle golden rock has been there in an extremely sensitive position on the edge of cliff. In Mon language, Kyaikhtiyo means ‘the pagoda carried on the hermit’s head’. With its magical powers, the boulder itself was said to be floating miraculously up in the air, carrying the tiny pagoda with of holy Buddha relics in it. Over many centuries, it has descended bit by bit, and it is now intact with the cliff. Today, this miracle golden rock is still rocking back and forth when pushed, and it has survived many earthquakes and storms for over 2400 years. Regarding the scientific specification of the golden rock, the rock on which the pagoda lies is a granite stone. The volume is about 244 cubic meters. The density is about 2.5 ton per cubic meter, which calculates the total weight to about 611 Tons. Whatever it is, a 600-ton boulder standing on 1 square meter base, on this weather-exposed rocky peak, is still a living miracle! You should go there if you ever wanted to witness a miracle.
