YANGON PLACES

Yangon, Myanmar, is filled with things to do and sights to see. Check out some Yangon Places below.

To the would-be traveler, I say this: Explore Myanmar. Southeast Asia’s second-largest country is home to some 50 million people with 5 million of those calling its largest city, Yangon, home. In addition to brilliant religious sites and pagodas galore, a treasure trove of incredible natural and artificial wonders await you. Check out some of Yangon’s best below.

Yangon, Myanmar, formerly known as Rangoon, Burma, is the former capital of Myanmar and the largest city in the country with a population of over 5 million people. Though Naypyidaw has replaced Yangon as the official capital, the city still retains its place as the economic capital of the fledgling country. With so much to see and do, this list will grow from time to time. Be sure to check back!

Israeli Abroad

IsraeliAbroad (formerly SidepieceDiplomat) was started as a passion project by amateur photographer Phillip Harbor as he travels from Tel Aviv, Israel, to Yangon, Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) and throughout the world. Named for the adventure, the photoblog seeks to give followers a unique insight into life from a nation that was until recently closed off from the rest of the world for more than half a century. This blog is half photo-half information-half experience-driven. Yes that’s more than a whole… and yes that makes about as much sense as anything else you can find on this half of the globe! Feel free to follow us on social media and right here on the blog as we explore the incredible wonders of Myanmar. Updates will come as regularly as possible and don’t forget to share with your friends!
