Yangon is a huge city, by far the biggest in Myanmar, and its ramshackle charms deserve at least a few days exploration.
has itself only been the capital since 1885, when the British conquered
northern Myanmar and moved the seat of government from Mandalay. But
they had long held the city as a key trading post and due to this
heritage, Yangon has a fascinating array of colonial-era buildings, many
of which are now crumbling. The biggest concentration of these is on
the riverfront Strand Road.
