Yangon: a downtown walking tour

Yangon, a jewel in the no longer colonial crown

Take a virtual downtown Yangon walking tour by perusing our fascinating photo gallery.

Wonder at the city’s diverse population, its gilded temples and churches of every religion, its faded colonial glory and recent turbulent past.

Stand in awe outside Aung San Suu Kyi’s house and imagine her leaning over the top of the high wall waving to the crowds below.

Be amazed at the miles of gold in the Shwedagon Pagoda and the 65 metre long reclining buddha at Chauk Htat Gyi Pagoda.

If you go in the rainy season prepare to have wet feet for most of your stay. Flip flops or crocs are the footwear of choice.

This place is going to change soon, so like Cuba it’s a place to visit sooner rather than later.

Photos may take a while to load especially if you’re on a mobile – but it’ll be worth it! Try turning your phone sideways to get the full screen effect.
