So what’s behind the golden facade of the Shwedagon Pagoda? During this
interactive half-day tour we take you through the back door and show you the
full history of the pagoda, the daily life of all people living in the immediate
surroundings of the pagoda and a deeper insight in the Buddhist religion and
how the spiritual belief is mixed with the belief in nats – the Myanmar spirits.
An intriguing half day tour starting from the bottom of the hill and passing the
workshops, markets and monasteries which will be useful or even essential to
understand more of the country during the rest of your journey. The tour
includes a traditional Burmese breakfast, offerings to monks and the pagoda, a
visit to a fortuneteller and a Burmese lunch.
