Discover Dala: the other side of Yangon on a bamboo bike
The Dala Discovery Tour is our popular half-day bicycle tour. In a small group, you will be comfortably riding on an amazing bicycle made from bamboo. We will leave the hustle & bustle of Yangon City behind and enjoy the charm of laid-back Dala with its fishing village, markets, garden-like stretches, rice paddies and friendly locals. It is just across the river from downtown Yangon, but the contrast between the two river banks is striking.
Your adventure already starts in downtown Yangon, where your guide will welcome you. It is only a short distance to the lively jetty. After a short ferry crossing, you will arrive in the tranquil, countryside village of Dala where time stood still. It is hard to believe you are only a few hundred meters from Yangon City.
On route, you will pass by beautiful Pagodas (temples) tucked away in the green. If you want to take a picture, just shout “Hota hota, photo time” and your guide will stop with a smile. As you go, your knowledgeable guide will explain interesting facts about the history and culture.
Moreover, you’ll see the traditional fishing village and visit some local workshops. At a traditional tea shop, you’ll take a break and have a taste of Myanmar. Also, you can decide for an optional stroll through a colourful market.
From a tiny local port, a small fishing boat will bring us back. Make sure you have your cameras ready to capture the authentic, traditional life of the river side communities.
