Yangon Flights Guide
The British mispronounced Myanmar as “Burma” when they first arrived and the name stuck. Anti-military junta activists insist on calling the country Burma. Today, the country is on a slow but steady track toward Democracy, and Yangoon, which was formerly called Rangoon, is the largest city.
It used to be quite difficult to get into country, much less to see the city. Burma remains a tightly-controlled country that is experiencing civil war. All the same, Yangoon, the former capital and present population hub of the country (5 million people), has many beautiful attractions that are open to visitors. The most popular of these attractions is the Shwedagon Paya. The place is revered by all of Burma as being the birthplace of existence. The imposing golden spires and intricately-crafty golden stupa are among the most interesting structures in the world. Within the paya are many individual structures. Sule Paya and Botataung Paya are the other two religious sites built in the style of Shwedagon. Otherwise, there are several other sites in the city worth visiting, such as the Zoological Gardens, the People’s Park and several breathless-evoking lakes.
