Yangon in photos

Published by at 12:48 pm under Yangon


We recently had the pleasure of three weeks travelling in Burma and while we had grand plans for covering a raft of destinations in those three weeks, plans went askew when we arrived in Yangon, fell in love with it and spent five days there. Oops. In the end we only covered Yangon, Pyay and Bagan, but we’ll be back soon for more. In the meantime, here are a few pics from our time in Yangon.

Yangon has lots of pigeons ... and the occasional pagoda.

The only thing that outnumbers pigeons are the street food stalls.

There's also plenty of gorgeous old buildings, sadly many of them will be knocked down for brass & glass.
