Yangon, crowned as “The Garden City of the East,” deserves your time for a visit. If you wish to experience a city without the rush of modernity, Yangon is the best place to be. Add to this the hundreds of great scenes to reflect the culture of the East; there is nothing more you can ask for in a vacation.
For one, the Shwedagon Pagoda never fails to attract all tourists all over the world. Being a golden shrine, this is a feast to the eyes during the day and even at night. It blazes in the sun and dazzles through the night, as what most tourists would say.
Another great thing that will deeply move you here in Yangon is the Karaweik Hall. Imagine a landmark that floats in the famous Royal Lake or Kandawgyi Lake. Shaped like a bird, this is something that you must not fail to visit here in Myanmar.
More than these two famous attractions, there are more treats Yangon has to offer. There are old buildings that date back to the British era, wildlife parks, historical museums, and even pagodas. The climate in Yangon is a unique tropical monsoon, which does not give you too much heat or too much cold. It is best to come here from December to March since there is little rainfall during this time. If you happen to pass by from April to November, you can expect a lot of rain in the city. Indeed, Yangon will give you a complete trip with the elements of nature, culture, and architecture.
