Formerly called Burma (and still called that in many places) Myanmar and its largest city Rangoon, now Yangon. is an interesting place to stop on a tour of South East Asia.Yangon has a large concentration of old British colonial buildings arranged along leafy avenues.Dominating the city’s skyline is the Shwedagon Pagoda, also known as the Golden Pagoda.This beautiful building and its surroundings is one of the holiest in the Buddhist religion. After many years of hiding from the international tourist, Burma is slowly returning to its former place among the countries to visit in South East Asia.
