The city of Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon, is the largest city in the country of Myanmar, formerly known as Burma. The country’s eventful history, and modern-day reinvention, is reflected in its varied architecture, a mix of Buddhist pagodas, British colonial buildings, and modern skyscrapers. After suffering for many years under enforced military rule and extreme poverty, Myanmar is not only recovering, but also becoming a popular tourist destination that attracts travelers from all over the world. Sights to explore here include the famous Shwedagon Pagoda, Inya Lake, and the Bogyoke Aung San Market.

After many years of travel being highly restricted under enforced military rule, Yangon is opening up to tourism and is considered by many to be one of Southeast Asia’s new hotspots. The signs of former British colonial rule are still here, especially in the old port area, which still remains the commercial center of the city. The main focal point of the city, though, is the huge golden Shwedagon Pagoda, visible from most places around the city, especially at night. Other attractions include the Sakura Tower, which gives you an enviable view of the city, the Mahabandoola Gardens, and The House of Memories Restaurant. A common spot for selfie-taking is outside the “Lady House” where Aung San Suu Kyi was held under house arrest during the country’s famous and lengthy military occupation.
