Nan Myint Tower is also a perfect place for you to tower over the whole city. Admission is approximately US $5 per tourist.

Ngapali Beach

Ngapali Beach is the most famous beach in Myanmar and is a popular tourist destination. Ngapali Beach has been promoted as a major tourist destination in Myanmar. The place boasts fishing-village roots with small boats heading out day and night to catch a bounty that is later served up super fresh in restaurants and hotels. Ox-drawn carts amble along the beach as locals find the sand-ways a smoother ride than the rough one-lane road. And barely a dozen bungalow-style resorts over 2 miles gives a lot of space on the beach. Having a Myanmar private tour including Ngapali Beach, you can be treated with sunset views dipped in luxury. Some of Myanmar’s resorts can be found on the strip of striking white-sandy coastlines. If you want reasonable accommodation, there are some midrange hotel at Ngapali to opt for.

Shwedagon Pagoda

The golden Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon is one of the most popular sites in Myanmar and the holiest Buddhist site in this country. Located to the west of the Kandawgyi Lake on the Singuttara Hill, it dominates the skyline of Yangon and is visible from much of the city. The main stupa is covered with gold plates and topped with 4531 diamonds, the largest of which is 72 carats. There is no exaggeration to say Shwedagon Pagoda showcases the best Myanmar heritages in architecture, sculpture and art. Shwedagon Pagoda means Golden Hair. In its exterior enshrines strands of Buddha's hair and other holy relics, and hundreds of temples. Over the years, a stream of devotees has brought offerings to the various temple shrines within the pagoda.

Sunset is certainly the recommended time to appreciate the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. Compared to the noon, in the dusk, temperatures are cooler with blustery winds. Plus, the Shwedagon Pagoda is even more dazzling at sunset. There are many people dressed in colourful attire and observe the majesty of sunset glowing. The goldenness of the Shwedagon’s stupas combining harmoniously with the cozy ambiance creates a truly awesome sight. It is definitely a must for your Myanmar family tour.

Mount Popa

Mount Popa is a well-known pilgrimage site for Khmer locals and worshippers. The temple on the top of the mountain is home to many large Buddha statues, and it also attracts many global tourists. On the vantage point of the Mount Popa, you can catch a gorgeous sunset smouldering over the expanse of the Myingyan Plain. Taung Kalat Monastery located up 777 steps at the top of the nearly 2,500-foot volcanic plug can be a big challenge for people who have low stamina.
