Let's explore the town with a Golden Pagoda


All travelers are strongly advised to pay a visit to many historical sites which are rich in traditional culture and customs in Myanmar and absorb as much knowledge as they can.

Before 2006, Yangon was the national capital of the Union of Myanmar. Nowadays, Nay Pyi Taw is the national capital, the seat of the Union Government. Before the Second World War, Yangon was considered one of the most picturesque cities in the East. Yangon was exceptionally laid out with perfectly straight streets and roads intersecting at right angles and many roundabouts.

The Shwedagon Pagoda, which is visible from a great distance as one approaches the city, is located on the Singutara Hill. It is the tallest and biggest shrine in the world: 326 feet high, circling 1, 420 feet at the base. On the platform and stairways of the pagoda there are many Tazaungs (resting places) where the visitors can admire the architectural craftsmanship of Myanmar and the art of teakwood carving.
