What We Love About Yangon

The city of Yangon is dubbed the "Garden City of the East" due to its abundant natural parks, lakes, and forests! Beyond that, the largest city of Myanmar definitely has more to offer than its natural wonders. The city is home to a wide variety of cultures and traditions, creating a very unique heritage. Some sought-after tourist attractions in Yangon are the Shwedagon Pagoda, the Great Dragon Pagoda, and the Golden Pagoda. The 99-meter gold-plated pagoda with a diamond-studded spire is definitely a sight for sore eyes and is 100% unmissable! If this leaves you speechless, make a trip to the Sule Pagoda or Kandawgyi Lake for more unique structures!
