About Yangon

Yangon is a melting pot of cultures and combinations. The city is a definite checklist item for providing the unique blend of the tranquillity of the Buddhist culture with the colonial British monuments amidst the typical chaos of an Asian city. Take a clockwise tour around the Buddist Pagodas - especially Shwedagon Pagoda, Sule Pagoda, Chauk Htet Kyi Pagoda, Swal Taw Pagoda - you will find the tranquillity that you were missing in your regular life. Besides the peace vouched by the Buddhist pagodas, Saint Mary Cathedral and  Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue stand tall in the colonial British and Jewish architectures respectively. Meanwhile, walk out of the monuments, into the anarchy of the roads and enjoy the hues of an Asian city. Do not forget to savour noodles from the street - especially Mohangi.

From there, walk ahead to find the Taukkyan War Cemetery - the cemetery which is the resting place of fallen British Allied soldiers from the Second World War.
