Your next travel destination



Yangon is a former capital of Myanmar (Burma) and the capital of Yangon Region. Yangon is the country's largest city with a population of over five million, and is the most important commercial centre. Yangon was founded as Dagon in the early 11th century. Dagon was a small fishing village centred about the Shwedagon Pagoda. In 1755, King Alaungpaya conquered Dagon, renamed it "Yangon", and added settlements around Dagon.

Colonial Yangon, with its spacious parks and lakes and mix of modern buildings and traditional wooden architecture, was known as "the garden city of the East". By the early 20th century, Yangon had public services and infrastructure on par with London.

Yangon has a tropical monsoon climate. The city features a lengthy rainy season from May through October where a substantial amount of rainfall is received; and a dry season from November through April, where little rainfall is seen. During the course of the year, average temperatures show little variance, with average highs ranging from 29 to 36 °C (84 to 97 °F) and average lows ranging from 18 to 25 °C (64 to 77 °F).

The largest and best maintained parks in Yangon are located around Shwedagon Pagoda. To the southeast of the gilded stupa is the most popular recreational area in the city – Kandawgyi Lake. The 150-acre lake is surrounded by the 110-acre Kandawgyi Nature Park, and the 69.25-acre Yangon Zoological Gardens, which consists of a zoo, an aquarium and an amusement park. West of the pagoda towards the former Hluttaw (Parliament) complex is the 130-acre People's Square and Park, (the former parading ground on important national days when Yangon was the capital). A few miles north of the pagoda lies the 37-acre Inya Lake Park – a favorite hangout place of Yangon University students, and a well-known place of romance in Burmese popular culture. Hlawga National Park and Allied War Memorial at the outskirts of the city are popular day-trip destinations with the well-to-do and tourists.
