Shwedagon Pagoda and Downtown Yangon

Spread the love

Yangon, Myanmar

As some of you may know I am currently in Yangon, Myanmar.

It’s been a delightful day. We visited Shwedagon Pagoda and were shown around by a tour guide. It is a very interesting place – a definite must see site here in Yangon.

The mix of colonial buildings here is interesting too. Although a lot of them are rundown, the few that are kept nicely are really quite beautiful.

We walked around downtown for a while and needed to have a break at the Strand Hotel. It was very hot, so we needed to have a drink. It was quite nice sitting in air conditioning.

We have pretty much caught taxis every where today as it’s been too hot to walk long distances.

I am loving Myanmar already!
