What to see in Myanmar
Tourist attractions Yangon
Known by the British as Rangoon, Yangon is a pleasant Southeast Asian capital, less intense than others in the region. Situated in the Ayeyearwady River delta, it has been the capital since the late 19th century, when Mandalay fell to British colonial rule. Don't miss the Shwedagon Pagoda, a sacred place of Burmese Buddhists.
