Yangon is the former capital of Myanmar. It is the largest and most populous city, and remains its most important commercial centre. Although Yangon has underdeveloped infrastructure compared to those of other major cities in the region, it is home to many colonial era buildings. High-rise residential and commercial buildings have been constructed in the past few decades, giving impetus for the growth of the city’s economy.
Yangon is a perfect base for a holiday in Myanmar, and contains a large number of monuments, pagodas, museums, churches, temples, and other attractions. The city is generally busy and loud, and traffic is quite slow, and driving in the city is not recommended. Yangon has banned bicycles and motor cycles in the city.
