Myanmar - Yangon (Chapter)
This is the Yangon chapter from Lonely Planet’s Myanmar (Burma) guidebook.
In addition to possessing vibrant streets, hectic open-air markets and Shwedagon Paya, arguably the region’s most awe-inspiring religious monument, five decades of international isolation has left Yangon with an enduring colonial charm.
