Yangon

The capital until 2006, Yangon (Rangoon) is Myanmar's largest city and its commercial center. It is truly developing, and full of juxtapositions: new high-rises abut traditional Southeast Asian shophouses while down the street from a frozen yogurt bar, a sidewalk dentist goes to work. Yangon's rich collection of colonial architecture is one of its biggest draws; The Strand and its surrounding side streets look today much as they did at the turn of the century, when Yangon—then Rangoon—was under British rule.

Yangon’s most iconic sight is unquestionably the enormous gilded Shwedagon Pagoda, but what makes it worth visiting beyond that is the rich, vibrant life that spills out of people’s homes and onto the streets. Colorful and chaotic, Yangon is a feast for the senses. Grinning uniformed schoolchildren and preadolescent monks vie for sidewalk space as vendors hawk fried goods and longyi-wearing businessmen go off to work. On a street of Indian-run paint shops sits the country’s only synagogue, a 19th-century relic; blocks away rise the steeples of St. Mary’s Cathedral, another reminder of the city’s colonial past.

The city was established in 1369 by King Byinnya and experienced its Golden Age between 1385 and 1635. When the Pegu River changed its course, the city was cut off from the sea and gradually lost its importance. The Mon Kingdom was powerful in Myanmar from the 9th to the 11th and from the 13th to the 16th century and for a brief period in the mid-18th century.


During your two-hour drive to Bago, the coach stops to allow you to stretch your legs and take in some noted sights.

The pagoda is one of the most venerated and impressive monuments in Southeast Asia, with origins dating back a thousand years.

At 165 feet (50 metres) long and 48 feet (14.6 metres) high, it is reputed to be the largest as well as the most lifelike of all reclining Buddhas. Originally built in 994 AD, it deteriorated and was lost in a jungle overgrowth. Only in the 1880s British era were the remains rediscovered during the construction of the railway line. Restoration began in 1881 and today a sturdy iron shed houses the colossal image. The walkway up to the viewing platform is crowded with souvenir and handicraft stalls.


Kyaik Pun Pagoda

It is a colonial-era villa, built in 1921.For many years the museum was open only on Martyrs' Day, July 19, and for only three hours. This restriction was in line with the military government's policy of never mentioning General Aung San.


On the way to museum, stop for a brief look at the Old Cabinet Office where General Aung San and Cabinet members were assassinated in 1947. Then proceed to Aung San's residence.


The museum formally opened in March 2012 and focuses on the General's short adult life. The majority of the displays are located on the ground floor in the family, dining and living rooms.

Outside, there is a garden with a bronze statue of Aung San and the swimming pool.

For a more complete visit of fascinating Yangon, you may want to consider taking this full-day tour that includes lunch at the legendary Strand Hotel.


Begin your tour with the one-hour drive from the port into the city, where the tour shows you some of the major attractions:


Shwedagon Pagoda

The 2,500-year-old Shwedagon dominates the city from its hillside location and attracts tens of thousands of pilgrims each year. This amazing site exudes a unique atmosphere, both serene and exciting. Rising 300 feet (91 metres)to its blazing crest, this spiritual center is covered with 60 tons (54431 kg) of gold leaf, gold and silver bells, rubies, sapphires and topaz. The meticulously maintained pagoda was built to house eight sacred hairs of the Buddha.


Follow your guide up the escalator to the temple on the third level. During a walking tour of approximately one hour you will learn about the history and significance of this impressive complex.


Chaukhtat Gyi Pagoda

See the enormous statue of a reclining Buddha almost as large as the one in Bago. The image is housed in a large metal-roofed shed a short distance from the Shwedagon Pagoda. It is not as famous as the Bago statue, but for those not going to Bago, the colossal Chaukhtatgyi should not be missed.


Maha Bandoola Park

Now admire a monument of a different kind with a visit to Maha Bandoola Park. In the center of the park stands the 150-foot (45 metres) Independence Monument. Honoring a Burmese general of the first Anglo-Burmese War, the obelisk is surrounded by five pillars, representing the harmony of Burma with its five former semi-autonomous states.


Lunch at the Strand

Enjoy a set menu of excellent Myanmar cuisine, for which the Strand is renowned in the city. The hotel was constructed by the Sarkies brothers of Raffles and Oriental fame in 1896 and became one of the fabulous outposts in the British empire. During World War II, the hotel was closed and later nationalized. In the 1990s, an extensive renovation project by a Dutch-Indonesian consortium restored the grand dame to her original splendor and spirit. Lunch at the Strand will be among the highlights of your tour.


National Museum

After lunch, proceed to the nearby National Museum, housed in the former Bank of India building. Many exhibits feature memorabilia of the last two kings of Burma. Some of the items are richly decorated with rubies, diamonds and other precious stones. The pride of the museum is the 24-foot-tall (7 metres) gilded Lion Throne from the royal palace at Mandalay. The museum also contains a collection of statues, carvings, Buddha images, paintings, costumes and crafts.
