Built on the Yangon River, the city has always been an important harbour. Its’ magnificent golden stupa, the Shwedagon visible from many parts of the city, the wide tree-lined streets to its’ colonial heritage and cultural charm add up to make it one of the most attractive capitals of South-East Asia.
Yangon will almost certainly be the departure point of your journey of adventure but there are many sights to see before you venture further.
A “taste” of the sights and sounds of this mystical city are: The Shwedagon and Sule Pagodas; the Maha Bandola Park; the Aung San and Chinese Markets (practice and have fun with your bargaining “power”!), The National Museum and the Kandawgyi and Inya Lakes are but a few of the treasures to seek and be tantalized with and by!
