Formerly known as Rangoon, this bustling, busy city was the capital of Myanmar until it was superseded by Naypyidaw in 2005. Today, it has a population of more than five million, and is the principle economic and financial city in the country. It is also becoming popular with travellers looking for a destination that’s a little off the beaten track, and those willing to travel to Yangon will discover a city that has a fascinating juxtaposition between ancient and modern.
Book a flight to Yangon with Qatar Airways and you’ll arrive in style in a city that welcomes visitors with open arms. From ancient temples to modern business, this is a city built on a foundation of tradition that has its sights firmly set on the future.
The Shwedagon Pagoda or Paya is the most important building in the country and a huge draw for tourists who want to learn more about the culture and traditions of Mayanmar. History records a pagoda at the site since the 6th Century, although as the site has been restored and rebuilt many times the current incarnation is no more than a couple of hundred years old. Its gilded spires are a dazzling sight, especially when they are lit up by multi-coloured lights at night. A must see on any trip to Myanmar.
Although it is currently a traffic island in the middle of the busiest intersection of the city, the Sule Paya (Sule Pagoda) is an incredibly important monument and a chance to escape the noise outside. Sule Paya is a 46m octagonal-shaped stupa that, according to legend, was built 2000 years ago to house a strand of Buddha's hair.
Yangon has plenty of open spaces, and one of the parks is the Mahabandoola Garden, which is best known for its fabulous display of roses that scents the air in the spring and summer.
