Where to go in Yangon MyanmarWhich way to Yangon, Myanmar?
Gartenstadt of the Orient
Myanmar - more than any other Asiatic nation - is undergoing major change, with the former capitol Yangon at the centre. Yangon's roads, a former UK capitol, are bordered by old houses from the Colonies. However, the most striking part of the building is the Shwedagon Pagoda.
Its large gold-plated cupola and towers tower like a crest above the town, protecting it from all angles. Be part of the thousand of Buddhist travellers and nosy tourist who come to this magnificent building every single working days to see its art at first hand. In order to get a real look at the town, get on the Compass.
You can get a intriguing insight into everyday Yangon living for less than $5 and three hour's work. Be careful of the light-coloured spots on the pavement, especially if you follow the traditional way of walking barefooted. It is the by-product of another indigenous custom that chews Betelnut - which makes a brilliant crimson sap that people spew on the pavement as they spend their mornings.
Head off on a cycling tour that will take you to the core of Myanmar's community and show you some of the most inspiring places to live. Accompany an experienced tour of Yangon's historical roads to see its gold sanctuaries, colorful architectural heritage and stunning sights. Head to Bagan to explore this archaeological wonder that houses tens of thousand shrines and shrines over 1,500 years old.
