Top 10 Attractions in Yangon
With its 65-meter long lying Buddha, Chaukhtatgyi Paya is not only a must, its pure grandeur and abundant detail make it one of the most remarkable stations in Yangon. Travellers can observe indigenous Buddhist friars from near-by convents honouring Buddha's teaching as they walk through the area, dense with the fragrance of frankincense and freshness of flower.
Known since 1926 for its scarce antiquities, old medallions, Myanmar Java and money changers, this urban inheritance is a popular tourist attraction for all. In this overcrowded maze, the rooms are fringed with lively booths where craftsmen from the area offer handcrafted crafts, clothing and savoury cuisine.
The Bogyoke Aung San Markt has one of the biggest selection of tradional longgyi and gems, and since the first sell of the days is regarded as lucky, those who get there early are likely to get some of the best prizes. Those who want to flee from the intense atmosphere of the square and the noises of the town can stop in the Trinity Cathedral and think in serenity.
Rail journeys were established in Myanmar around 1877, when the British built a 163-mile line between Yangon and Pyay. Today you can visit the three colorful houses and luxuriant tropic garden that form the former rail head office in Yangon. Built in 1896, the Burma Railways is still an impressing but striking example of the nation's cultural heritages.
With its unmistakable victorian style with gothic detailing and locals it is a one-of-a-kind building in the town. This area near the railhead is not part of a large rehabilitation project.
