This seven-day, six-night itinerary is designed specifically for mobility-challenged tourists – you'll discover both Yangon in Myanmar and Singapore through wheelchair-friendly tours and activities through the best that both worlds can offer.
As major Southeast Asian cities go, Yangon in Myanmar could not be more different from Singapore – but this tour, designed for travelers with mobility impairments and their families, will show the best side of each major city, and allow its guests to savor the differences they'll find across both halves of the trip.
Start in Yangon, former capital of Myanmar and still its largest, grandest city. You'll be met at the airport to begin your trip posthaste. Over three days, you'll explore Yangon’s city centre, site of many British-colonial-era buildings like the Immanuel Baptist Church, High Court, City Hall, Yangon Rail Station and Ministers’ Office. Over decades of foreign rule, the British left their mark on this riverside city, still apparent in its surviving colonial architecture.
Many buildings have since been taken over by local concerns, but other British-era buildings still serve their original purpose – among them the neo-Gothic St. Mary’s Cathedral, Myanmar’s largest Catholic cathedral built in 1909; and the Bogyoke Aung San Market, now the most popular bazaar in Yangon for locals and foreigners alike.
The devout Buddhist culture of the local Burmese can still be seen in Yangon's shrines – among them Sule Pagoda, where a strand of Buddha’s hair is enshrined; Kabar Aye Pagoda, where the Sixth Buddhist Synod was held in 1954; and Shwedagon Zedi Daw, the 325-feet-tall gilded stupa that dominates the skyline of Yangon.
Finally, parks like the People's Park, Mahabandoola Park, and Kandawgyi Park will satisfy your need for wide-open spaces in the city.
Proceeding to Singapore, you'll be transported to a hyper-modern metropolis with one foot in the past. Colonial-era landmarks like the Padang, Chinatown, City Hall and the wrought-iron Lau Pa Sat hawker center stand in marked contrast to newer areas like Orchard Road, Singapore Flyer and the rest of the Marina Bay skyline.

Despite its soaring skyscrapers, Singapore nurtures its natural side via parks like Gardens by the Bay, S.E.A Aquarium, and Jurong Bird Park – each one considered the best in their respective realms.
