Yangon is the capital of Myanmar (Burma) and is in fact one of the most beautiful ones in Asia. It’s a clean city without too much traffic and pollution.

I arrived early in the morning with Air Asia (not a bad airline) from Kathmandu. I had booked accommodation for three nights at Sky hotel 88st, which is in the city centre, good value for money and very decent.

Things to do in Yangon:

Visit the Sule pagoda, which is a 2.600 year-old Temple

Visit the Maha Bandula park. A nice park to relax and observe the locals.

Visit the Shwendagon pagoda. This is a must see Temple, if you are in Yangon.

Go to the Kandawgyi lake, to see the famous Karaweik palace.

Visit the Utopia tower, which is a nice view point to see Yangon from the 5th floor.

Go to the Chaukhtatgyi Buddha Temple. The biggest reclining Buddha of Myanmar.

Go see Inya lake. Perfect place for a walk and to see the sunset.

Where to eat in Yangon:

At the Royal Jasmine Authentic Thai Cuisine.

At Nourish Cafe

At LinkAge Restaurant and Art Gallery

At Wai Wais Noodle Place

At Green Gallery

And finally at Gekko co. Ltd
