Yangon – Dalla – Twante – Yangon
This day tour takes you to rural communities outside Yangon to discover their countryside lifestyle, to support small enterprises and to see how they creatively recycle products.

After these inspirational visits, ride a car to the Mingalar Bio Garden in Kyaikthalae Village at Twante (-30 minutes).
