The city is an amalgamation of British, Burmese, Chinese and Indian influences, and is known for its colonial architecture, which although decaying and beyond appreciation, remains an almost unique example of a 19th-century British colonial capital.

This day, you have plenty of time to explore the city on your own. Alternatively, you could opt for a refreshing spa treatment.
