Downtown Walking Tour (1/2 day)
35 USD (or Myanmar Currency Equivalent)
Includes Refreshments and an Expert Guide

Dozens of galleries and artist studios dot the historic streets of Yangon. Weaving in and out of the grid of historic buildings, visitors can often miss the gallery locations. We start at Myanm/art with a refreshment and a quick overview of Myanmar’s fascinating art history. We then walk one of several routes in the downtown area. We will visit 4-6 galleries, depending on how long we spend in each, and stop for a cold drink along the way. This tour may include:

River Gallery, Lokanat Gallery, Pansodan Scene, Myanmar Deitta, Pansodan Gallery, Open Space Yangon, Nawaday Tharlar, Gallery 65, New Zero Art Space, and many more!

Uptown Driving Tour (Full Day or 1/2 day)
45 USD (or Myanmar Currency Equivalent)
Includes Transport, Refreshments, Expert Guide and Short Lecture

There are great studios and galleries outside of downtown, but you need a car to get there. We can take you from Golden Valley to the Industrial Zone, where you will be introduced to gallery owners and artists working and contributing to the larger scene in Myanmar. We start at Myanm/art for introduction to the art scene and some reference material, then head out into the northern neighborhoods for a morning or afternoon of viewing. Taxis or private car can be arranged and prices split between participants. This tour may include:

KZL Art Gallery, New Treasure Art Gallery, Yangon Gallery, Tiger Art Gallery, Beikthano Art Gallery and more.

****Traffic in Yangon is getting worse and driving schedules will be based on the flow of traffic during that particular day. We will do our very best to minimize time spent in the cars.****
