Yangon

Giving the sense of a meeting of cultures, this 2,600 year old structure contrasts with fading British colonial buildings – past which you might see monks strolling in their purple robes, or barefoot local people chewing on their betel nuts. Myanmar's largest and most vibrant city, Yangon is a place that many visitors to Myanmar pass by all too quickly. Its historical importance as a trading post means that for centuries it has been home to a fascinating melting pot of ethnicities and religions, and it is host to the largest number of colonial-era buildings in Southeast Asia. Today, it has thriving cultural and social scenes.
