    Stop: 4 hours
    Meeting point is near Nan Thida Ferry Terminal in front of Junior Duck restaurant. Meet with your guide and get briefing about the whole tour. After that take a local ferry boat to cross the Yangon River and into the small town of Dala. The ferry that crosses the Yangon River is used every day by thousands of local commuters going to and from work. The scenery quickly changes once you cross the river, from the busy streets of Yangon to the quiet countryside of Dala. After reaching Dala, travel by trishaw through the scenic town with its trees, local neighborhoods and quiet side streets. Stop at a tea shop to experience a daily staple of life in Myanmar and taste the Burmese typical breakfast. While in Dala, visit the market and have plenty of opportunities to stop and interact with the friendly locals. Trishaw drivers will take you on country roads through local villages to a monastic school. Here you can meet the children and talk to the teachers (with help of your guide). The head monk does all he can with very limited funds to create a good life for the children, and if you care to make a donation while you are here it will be welcomed for the purchase of school books, blankets, rice, clothing etc. The children are delighted to meet foreigners, and these encounters can be very rewarding for visitors. Next visit is to Chu Chu Workshop; you will see how the plastic bags from the garbage are turned into useful products. Chu Chu members gather plastic bags from the dumping sites and markets in Yangon and work to develop new designs that meet the local and international market demand. On your way back to the ferry enjoy the views of real local rural life - nothing like the busy streets of Yangon on other side of the river. Return by ferry boat to Yangon, observing life along the river and reflecting back on the excursion to Dala. Arrive back to Nan Thida Ferry Terminals where your day excursion comes to the end.

The Other side of Yangon is a surprise and an eyeopener
Feb. 2020
Last February I spend some time in Yangon and wanted to see something else. So I have joined this tour and visited the Dala side of Yangon. Life over there is so different and such a surprise to me. Very kind and friendly people, you really see the colorful local life, easy to reach (just a 10 minute boat-ferry with views on Yangon) and relaxed. It feels like you are way out of town in a rural area. It was an eyeopener and a very pleasant surprise for me. Asian Tour did organize this very well and the guide was very informative. I recommend everyone to join this tour to see something else then the main highlights of Yangon. When you are a first time visitor or a repeater, you will be surprised!
