Yangon airport to the city

Home Yangon Airport (RGN) Transfers. Formerly known as Rangoon, Yangon was the former capital of Myanmar and still the capital of the Yangon region. The Yangon Airport Hotel is the perfect choice for travellers who want to enjoy the sights and sounds of Yangon. The temple is located on the banks of the river, just off the main tourist route of the city. We had a great view of the Shwedagon Pagoda in the city from our hotel room.
