Rangoon Things to Do: 311 reviews and 866 photos

  Yangon satellite photo
by hydronetta

Yangon is a big city with a population of 4 million.
The central part of it (as seen in satellite) is a rather compact area full of buildings that you can easily sightsee on foot or at least using cyclos.
The rest part of the city is dominated by beautiful tranquil parks and lakes plus the famous Shwedagon pagoda. In such case transportation is needed as distances between places are long.
One day sightseeing is more than enough for Yangon. In fact only Shwedagon will keep you occupied for several hours and it's better visited by sunset time.
