I enjoyed the mix of styles that Yangon had to offer. It something that I hadn't experienced since India back in the 80's. Here in the photo is a Monk enjoying a stroll through Mahabandoola Garden.

Shwedagon Paya

If you make it to Yangon I think a evening visit to Shwedagon Paya would be the number one site to visit!!

    Scott - an amazing page on your experiences in Yangon, thanks for sharing! Your tips on the downside of chewing Betel nuts and the local lingo for side cars (saiq-ka) both reminded me of my time in Papua New Guinea!

    Brilliant page! Sponsored street signs? "This dead-end-street sign is proudly presented by "Viagra"" *lol* Seems to be a very good income for the ministry of transport

    Very Nice! the local customs can be comparable to PI except the temple and mailbox..you're a sunset/sunrise expert..and the market, street vendors, fruits/dried fruit.I like to see them just like in some other SEAcountries.
