Yangon Travel Guide and Yangon Travel Information - TravelPuppy.com
Yangon is the capital and gateway to Myanmar. The many shady and beautiful lakes have garnered it a reputation as the "Garden City of the East". The grand colonial-style buildings of Yangon, its busy street-market and wide tree-lined avenues, offer an exciting combination of old world charm and modern vitality.

Yangon is home to a large reclining Buddha, (Chauk Htat Gyi), the Royal Lake the most beautiful pagoda in Asia; the Shwedagon.

The beginning of your journey will be Yangon, as all airlines serving Myanmar fly to Yangon International Airport. A one-night stay is advised prior to departure up-country and one night at the end of the trip in Myanmar.

A minimum half-day of sightseeing in Yangon is recommended - the highlight being, of course, the Shwedagon Pagoda. A shopping excursion to Boyoke(Scott) Market, which is closed on Mondays and Public holidays.
