Yangon – The City
Yangon, also called Rangoon, was the capital city of independent Myanmar (Burma) from 1948 to 2006, when the government officially proclaimed the new city of Nay Pyi Daw (Naypyidaw) the capital of the country. Yangon is located in the southern part of the country on the east bank of the Yangon river north of the Gulf of Martaban of the Andaman sea.

It is one of the most famous and interesting places to visit in Yangon. Sule Pagoda lies in the center of Yangon and can be easily visited.
