Top Things To Do In Yangon

Yangon, the former capital of Myanmar is the biggest and most culturally diverse cities of Myanmar. Here you can find influence of the British colonial design and the touch of structure of the Indian and Chinese. Nonetheless, the majority of the population still follow Buddhism with the evidence of the opulent gilded and diamond studded top – Shwedagon Pagoda.

The Shwedagon Pagoda
The Shwedagon Pagoda is one of the world’s most spectacular religious monuments of this picturesque Garden City. The golden dome of the Shwedagon Pagoda rises 98 meters above its base and is covered with 60 tons of pure gold. The best time to visit Shwedagon Pagoda is at sunset when its gilded stupa is bathed in the fading rays of the sun and takes on a magical glow.


Colonial Streets
British Burma existed from1885 to 1942, so the architecture is still present. The city center is like a open-air museum full of many remarkable buildings: the Parliament for Justice, the Strand hotel, the Immanuel Baptist Church, etc.
 

China and Indian Town
Have a taste of the cosmopolitan culture in China and Indian Town, located in the city center.


Bogyoke Aung San Market
The Bogyoke Aung San Market has hundreds of stores and gems shops. It is closed on Monday and public holiday.
