Yangon was founded in 1755 by King Alaungpaya; he established Yangon on the location of a small town named Dagon when he dominated the lower part of Myanmar. He was the one who gave the name Yangon, meaning ‘End of Strife’. In 1885, the name was anglicised as Rangoon when the British annexed the country.
This city is a melting pot—a diversity of cultures and communities in terms of people, settlement and religions. Because it serves as the country's main entrance and seaport, it is also the country’s centre of business. It is a city that balances tradition, culture and modernity, making it a must-see for anyone who wants to see a different side of Asia.

 

  • Highlights: Yangon is home to over 6 million people, and is by far Myanmar’s largest city. The heart of the city remains the golden Shwedagon Pagoda, which is hard not to miss as it’s visible from most places that you’ll venture to. Yangon is situated on the East bank of the Yangon River...
