Yangon in a tailor-made trip
Don't miss out on a visit to Burma ! It will take a good two inches to visit the Shwedagon Pagoda and completely soak up the atmosphere that prevails there. Wander through the small alleys of the town centre and enjoy a nice glass of coffee and a glass of dairy in one of the small tearooms.
Abstract: When I first saw Yangon, it seemed to me to have run down. What makes the town so interesting, however, is the prevailing ambience. So I took the liberty of visiting a number of buddhistic monasteries, such as the Sule Pagoda, to go shopping at the city's large central square, to walk along the banks of Kandawgyi and, above all, to walk for a few hour past the Shwedagon Pagoda, the biggest buddhistic monastery in the whole canyon.
Come and visit the Shwedagon Pagoda at dawn or dusk! It is still an indispensable place to visit Burma. Culturally, I wasn't overcome by Yangon. Shwedagon Pagoda, a giant Stupa on top of Singuttara Hill, is obviously the capital to visit.
This is an important place of Buddhist faith and at the same the most important centre of religion in Burma. A further beautiful excursion: a visit around the Kandawgyi-See, an man-made water reservoir in the town, encircled by a playground and a playground for the young. When you have little to spare, two nights and two nights are enough to see Yangon's key sights.
Summary: Yangon is a busy town, which consists of major roads, which are laid out in a pattern and do not provide any special charme to my taste. At first I found the town quite disturbing. In spite of all this, the town impresses in a different way. First, there is the ambience around the Hauptstraße and 19. avenue at nightfall, where there are many inexpensive bars offering delicious barbecued beef.
I will always recall how the rainbow shines at nightfall.
