Yangon

Formerly known as Rangoon, Yangon is Myanmar's largest and most important city. It is where folklore, modernism, culture, or effervescence blend ideally to make it a hectic destination.
Shwedagon Pagoda is the first place to see. It is a very sacred Buddhist site covering about six hectares and displays a stupa of a hundred meters covered with gold leaf. You will be amazed at the various planetary pillars, the museum filled with religious ornaments, and the photo gallery. The steps of Yangon, including Bogyoke and 26th Street, are unmissable, and it is a real sensory experience. A walking corner is dedicated to each suburb where textiles, traditional clothes, antiques, household items, cosmetics, and herbs are sold. The People's Park is a place that appeals very much to tourists with its many flowers, lovely water pools, fountains, and a fantastic view of Shwedagon Pagoda. Tourists stop at the Htwe Oo puppet theatre for a playful break. This puppet show highlights the intense interest that locals have in art. In Yangon, the lakes are beautiful and invite twilight walks. It is mainly the case for Kandawgyi Lake and Inya Lake. To admire the giant Buddha statues in Yangon, you must go to Paya Chaukhtatgyi, which highlights an elongated Buddha covered with gold leaves and precious stones. The Paya Ngahtatgyi is another Buddha emphasized by the temple's wooded structure. At the Yangon National Museum, history is honored. It is full of priceless collections and cultural riches such as works of art, old pieces, and sacred relics. The circular train is an experience to live in Yangon. It makes a three-hour loop in all the suburbs and is an opportunity to taste some specialties on the wagons. To visit the Dala district, you have to make a twenty-minute crossing. It is a small village that promises travelers tranquility and allows them to get a glimpse of life in the remote countryside. You must also go to the 37th street border, an open-air bookstore in Yangon. This atypical street allows you to stroll between the stands and find some souvenirs. Then, in February, the Shwedagon Pagoda Festival occurs, among other festivals. It lasts about two weeks and features several activities, rituals, and other traditional ceremonies of Buddhist colors.
