Yangon (formerly known as Rangoon) is a former capital of Myanmar (Burma) and the capital of Yangon Region until it was superseded by Naypyidaw in November 2005. Yangon is also the main gate way to Myanmar by Air and Sea.
The pride of Yangon is the world famous Shwedagon Pagoda, the landmark of Myanmar. The golden dome rises 98 meters above its base and is covered with 11 tons of pure gold. The city’s other notable religious sites include the Botataung and Sule pagodas, both housing Buddhist relics.
Bagan is founded at 10th century and today it’s become one of the richest archaeological sites in Asia.
It is an ancient city in central Myanmar (formerly Burma), southwest of Mandalay. Over 400 miles (640 km) north of Yangon on the bank of the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) River, it’s known for the Bagan Archaeological Area, where more than 2,000 Buddhist monuments tower over green plains.
Inle Lake is a freshwater lake located in the Nyaungshwe Township of Taunggyi District of Shan State, part of Shan Hills in Myanmar. It is the second largest lake in Myanmar with an estimated surface area of 44.9 square miles (116 km2), and one of the highest at an elevation of 2,900 feet (880 m).
The watershed area for the lake lies to a large extent to the north and west of the lake. The lake drains through the Nam Pilu or Balu Chaung on its southern end. There is a hot spring on its northwestern shore.
