Yangon: Gallery

Although no longer the capital of Myanmar, Yangon remains the cultural and commercial hub. The city contains the largest Buddhist monument in Myanmar, the Shwedagon Pagoda as well as numerous museums and attractions. The city is vibrant, full of life and colour and well worth a visit.
