shwedagon

Myanmar’s commercial capital, Yangon (formerly Rangoon) offers intoxicating mix of old-world charm, traditional culture and international influence. Shwedagon Pagoda dominates much of the inner city, casting a golden glow over its broad lakes and tree-lined avenues at nighttime, but Yangon is also renowned for its stock of heritage buildings, which are increasingly being converted into restaurants, bars and galleries. The city is also the country’s culinary capital, offering the chance to try local cuisine from dozens of ethnic groups, and the impressive Bogyoke Aung San Market is the perfect spot to buy souvenirs, handicrafts and jewellery.
