Discover The Island With A Private Tour

This is a tour for interacting with native folks who rarely come into contact with foreigners in the villages on the secret island. It lies close to the city of Yangon.

Once you arrive there you will feel like you are visiting in a deep remote areas of Myanmar. You can explore the life of a farmer, observe the alive monastery with monastic education, local famous pagoda, traditional boat repair dockyard.

Moreover, you will have the opportunity to experience local snacks something like Let-Phat-thoke (Green Leaf Salad) at the tea shop after passing through rice paddies, traditional wooden houses and colorfully-dressed villagers.


After breakfast, my driver and me will pick you up from your place. We drive to Wartan jetty to cross over the secret island.

On arrival to Island, we stroll a few minutes to tea shop for your morning local tea and snack. Then, our trishaw masters will transfer to local market. We drop in monastery to observe how monastic education goes on in a village. We will stop en-route at villages and see what is being made and harvested depending upon the time of the years. We will use small narrow path passing through paddy fields, visit to farmer house to learn Myanmar agriculture system as well. We stroll around a bit to stretch our legs at the end of the island.

After, we will drop in village local tea house to have rest with green leaf salad and plain tea or some other soft drinks. Then, head out for traditional wooden boat dockyard to learn how it's done. Then, back to jetty and transfer to your place.

This tour is designed to get the full dose of scenic countryside and perfect to avoid touristy places.
