Your guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel this morning for a full day of exploring Yangon's art and antiques scene.

We'll start up in the area of Yangon known as 'Golden Valley' at New Treasure Gallery. This art gallery was established by Min Wai Aung, a Burmese artist famous for his paintings of monks. Then visit two antiques shops, Augustine's and Madame Thair. Both shops are filled with curious and some real hidden gems from various periods of Myanmar's history. The exuberant Madame Thair will be sure to entertain you with her charm and 'everything is for sale' pitch. Next it's on to Dhamazedi Road where a row of small shop houses are packed full of antiques. Hidden among the dusty shelves are many treasures from the colonial era and before.

Stop for lunch at House of Memories Restaurant, an old colonial style mansion set in a beautiful garden. Once used as the BIA (Burma Independence Army) and BDA (Burma Defense Army) Head Quarters, the building is full of memories of the people who embarked on the long walk toward gaining independence for Myanmar. Wander through the house looking at the historic remnants on display including a room named after General Aung San, which was once his office and still contains his desk and typewriter.

This afternoon we will head downtown to visit at least three art galleries. (Itinerary may vary depending on opening hours, current exhibits and client's personal interests). We'll start at River Gallery, located adjacent to The Strand Hotel, which aims to bring Myanmar art to a wider audience. River Gallery showcases the city's widest range of contemporary art, representing more than 30 artists at any given time. Next we'll visit Lokanat Gallery, a non-profit gallery that features a small collection of traditional works as well as rotating exhibits of current Burmese artists.

Then we will continue to Pansodan Arts to view works of art covering traditional period up to modern, abstract styles. The knowledgeable curator will show you upstairs to the store room where hundreds of paintings are tucked away, including war-time propaganda, neo-classical works created as European influences began to reach Myanmar and classic line drawings and photographs. Before leaving downtown we'll visit the newest addition to Yangon's arts scene, Sule Eain. Located adjacent to Sule Paya, this loft-style space features rotating exhibitions of contemporary painters. Then it is time to transfer back to your hotel.
