Things to do - general

Yangon (formerly Rangoon) is the largest city and main economic hub of Myanmar. It is located at the convergence of the Yangon and Bago Rivers. It is a cosmopolitan city which still maintains its colonial charm with wide tree lined avenues, tranquil lakes, and gracious turn of the century architecture.

The magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda dominates the city skyline, while at street level Yangon is a paradise for hunting out a variety of exotic arts and crafts. Among the many attractions and sites in Yangon are the Sule Pagoda, People’s Park and a trip on the Circular Train. At night time Chinatown comes alive with its pungent aromas and delicious street food.
