Myanmar’s most famous metropolis

Formerly known as Rangoon, Yangon may no longer be Myanmar’s capital but remains the cultural and commercial heart of the country. By far the largest city in Myanmar, Yangon is a compelling mix of golden pagodas, colonial architecture and history-stained streets, which deserve at least a few days exploration.

Why visit Yangon?

  • Array of colonial-era buildings
  • Shwedagon Pagoda
  • Eclectic range of museums
  • Flourishing art scene
  • Bogyoke Aung San Market
