Discover Myanmar former capital, once considered as one of the jewels of the British Empire, and understand why the city is still a must-do place to visit these days.
With its superb public buildings, its lakes and gardens, Yangon was once considered as the “Garden City of the East” in the British Empire. In 1852, British took over Yangon and turned it into the capital of Lower Burma and in 1885 of all British Burma.
Colonial Yangon was considered a jewel in the British Crown with the city matching even London by its public services and infrastructure at the start of the 20th century. Yangon has the largest number of colonial structures of any city in Southeast Asia, although recent modernization in the last five years has translated into the destruction of many buildings.
