All about Yangon
Yangon, Myanmar's biggest town, is one of the best places in Asia. Those are the reason why it is called the "Garden Town of the East". But Yangon has more to boast than just an amazing landscape. It is a crucible - a variety of civilizations and societies in relation to peoples, settlements and religion.
The Yangon was formed in 1755 by King Alaungpaya; he formed Yangon on the site of a small village called Dagon when he ruled the lower part of Myanmar. It was he who gave the name Yangon, which means "end of the fight". It is a place that combines traditions, cultures and modern times and is a must for anyone who wants to see a different side of Asia.

"Recognizing that something was going on, we opened the doors and could smell the fumes and evacuate immediately," she said to the newsmagazine. "No alarms and it just sounds like there were drunkards in the corridors," she said, and added that the personnel were helping to keep her and others safe.
Our patrons have relocated to other Yangon hostels. Located on the shores of shores of Lake Kandawgyi, the resort was constructed in the 1990' s, but its oldest part is from the 1930', when the grounds were used by UK military officials as a paddle-school.
