The former capital of Myanmar and also its largest city, Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon is the starting point of many a holiday in this country. It is home to Myanmar’s most evocative monument, the Shwedagon Pagoda aside from a scattering of colonial-era buildings, believed to be the largest concentration in the whole of South-east Asia. You have vestiges from the Mughal era as well as from British Burma when the British had taken over Yangon in the First Anglo-Burmese War between 1824 and 1826. A landmark of Yangon you simply cannot afford to miss on your Burmese holiday.
When considering the best time to visit Myanmar (Burma), think about what it includes three major reasons: the hot season from March to May, the wet season from June to September and the cool season from October to February.
