Old Yangon

Walk the streets of Old Yangon to discover leafy lanes and byways filled with enormous timber mansions, decorated in the unique Myanmar style, where British captains of industry once lived.

See century-old buildings with magnificent architecture, reminders of Yangon's past. The number of colonial buildings still standing in downtown Yangon is nothing short of spectacular and Myanmar's isolation from the rest of the world during the years after independence can largely be attributed to the unique preservation of many of its old buildings.
