Yangon is Myanmar’s largest city, and until 2005 its capital. Yangon is a large city, with around 7 million permanent residents, and it is also a chaotic city with relatively poor infrastructure which is one of the reason for the construction of an entirely new city, Naypyitaw, as location for the country’s government. Yangon is also a very diverse city featuring a mix of architectural styles, most notably a large number of buildings from the period when Myanmar was a British colony.
Major attractions to see in Yangon include:
- Shwedagon Pagoda: Shwedagon Pagoda is the most important temple in Myanmar. According to local belief the temple was founded during the lifetime of the Lord Buddha to enshrine 4 of hairs which were given to Burmese merchants visiting India. The main pagoda is 99 metres high and covered in gold and jewels worth of literally billions of US Dollars.
- Chauk Htat Gyi Reclining Buddha: The Chauk Htat Gyi Reclining Buddha is 66 metres long and 17 metres high and housed within an open sided structure in the grounds of a temple.
- Bogyoke Aung San Market: The most famous market in Yangon.
- Yangon Circular Train Line: 50 km long suburban railway line with markets at many of the stop. The line is very slow, very cheap and very popular with local people.
- Htwe Oo Myanmar Puppet Theatre: The Htwe Oo Myanmar Puppet Theatre is one of the last places in Myanmar where you can see a performance of traditional Burmese puppetry. During the 18th and 19th Centuries, before cinema and TV, puppetry was a major form of entertainment in Myanmar. The Htwe Oo Myanmar Puppet Theatre is a family run project to keep this dying tradition alive.
