Explore two of Myanmar's most thrilling towns with daily trips in Mandalay and Yangon.
Yangon was once the capitol of Myanmar before Naypyidaw and is still the trading center and the biggest town. Situated in the rich Yangon river estuary, it is home to the country's major seaports and airports and serves as a gateway for travelers to other towns and areas.
It is full of historical and cultural heritage, but also shows most of the signs of transformation since Myanmar opened in 2011 after centuries of unified warfare. The most important sights worth seeing are the Shwedagon, the lying Buddha Chaukhtetgyi, the Sule Pagoda and the Kolonial Building in the centre of the town, the Bogyok (Scott) Market, the National Museum and the Kaba Aye (World Peace) Pagoda.
Yangon downtown houses the biggest collections of 19th and early 20th centuries colorful architectural colonies in Southeast Asia. These include Yangon Town Hall, Customs House, Victorian-style Strand Hotel and Pegu Club, one of the oldest preserved UK collective houses in Yangon.
