Life in Yangon

Yangon is at the cutting edge of Burmese culture and a fascinating introduction to Myanmar. Despite being stripped of its capital-city status in 2005, Yangon remains the country's biggest city and economic hub.

The city is an amalgamation of British, Burmese, Chinese, and Indian influences. It is known for its colonial architecture, which although decaying, remains an almost unique example of a 19th-century British colonial capital. New high-rise buildings were constructed from the 1990s as the government began to allow private investment. However, Yangon continues to be a city of the past, as seen by its lyongi wearing pedestrians, its street vendors, and busy downtown streets. 

On arrival to Yangon one cannot help notice that people live outside rather than in their flats – the streets are lined with street vendors selling everything from nuts and bolts, fish, fruits, shoes, DVDs to pens and paper. This is not even taking into account the uncountable number of pavement eateries where one can eat for as little as $1, as well as the thousand of betel nut vendors preparing their goods on demand. You will get the feeling that there are things going on all around you and that the next step is to go out and discover the streets and live the true Myanmar experience.

Places to Visit

Travelling through Myanmar is easy and there are many local and safe airlines that will take you to exciting places. Yangon is well located for weekend trips to Mandalay, Bagan, and Inle.

If you prefer the beaches there are the cities of Chaung Thar and Ngapali where one can just relax in the sun on wonderful white sandy beaches. Another popular beach destination is Ngwe Saung.

On longer weekends many take trips to neighbouring countries. Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia are popular destinations and Bangkok is only a 1-hour flight away.
