It is brilliant to be at Yangon. There is a famous pagoda named Shwe Dagon Pagoda. There are a lot of international schools in Yangon. There are also a lot of shopping centers where you can buy anything you want. There are also lots of restaurants and cafe. The Trader's Hotel is the best hotel and is very likely that everyone like them.

It is a good place to visit. It has so many kinds of places such as golden Pagoda, parks, restaurants, supermarkets, plaza, etc. It is also a commerciall city. Yangon is also really small in the map but it is a big city in our mind.

Yangon is a nice place to visit. One of the world's wonders, Shwedagon pagoda, is situated in Yangon. The accommodation is very affordable. There are a lot of weakest in discipline and transportation. It's a very crowded city, but the citizens are very helpful and friendly.

Yangon is a good city but weak in road safety due to lack of driving discipline and safety road crossing. No lamp post electricity, unsafe platform with many vendors. No proper bus way and road block by buses looking for passenger. No car speed control in the city, scattered garbages with many dirty roads. Hotel room charges are sky high with poor services. Taxis run without meter. Taxi charges are mouth value. People are good and helpful. Shwedagon is unique in ASEAN.

This is a very beautiful place where people are very polite and where there is the Shwe Dagon Pagoda. Yangon is really a good place to visit and although it is not a luxurious place, it's going to be quite an exiting place. From Yangon, you can go to other interesting places in Myanmar like the Moe Yunn Gyi Wetland in Bago division and the Inle lake in Southern Shan State. I'm sure you'll have an exiting experience in Yangon.

In the last years Yangon had a fast development in its trade activities and also many hotels, motels and lodges were built.
It is full of green places and trees and is completely different to other Asian cities of the same size.
There are many famous pagodas in Yangon worth to be seen and which give the city also a religious importance all over Myanmar.
The climate is typical tropic, characterized by three main seasons: the cool season and best one to visit the city goes from October to February, the hot season from March to May and the rainy season ... More from June to October.
The official language is Burman; English is used mostly for tourist and commercial reasons.

Yangon is situated in the fertile delta country of southern Myanmar on the Yangon River.
In the 1775 Yangon became the capital of Myanmar when King Alaungpaya made stop the numerous internal wars. Yangon means literally “end of the fight”.
Later the city was first conquered by the British and then by the Japanese and became again capital of Myanmar in 1948.
Today the city is an important cultural centre as well as a very active commercial port.
At present, Yangon has a population of about four million people.
The main religion in Yangon is Buddhism and the local currency is named Kyat.

A good city; worth visiting! Shwedagon pagoda is the heart of Yangon and should not be missed. Some restaurants, though not so well-known, provide great facilities! Find them.

Yangon, Myanmar is a beautiful place to see when u visit. There are so many culture and ancient pagodas that lasted for thousand of years. You can also visit Shwedagone pagoda that is located in the middle of Yangon and it is really peaceful to visit at the morning. Moreover we want more tourist to visit our wonderful view. So PLEASE visit Myanmar for at least once.
