Our final stop on our trip to Myanmar was Yangon, the biggest and former capital city.
Yangon is a fascinating city. On one side of the road you have old, crumbling colonial English buildings, and on the other side there would be a stinking market full of fresh fish, meat, vegetables – you name it, they’ve got it. The blend of the old and new is interesting, and we suspect Yangon will look quite different in the years to come owing to the amount of building work we saw going on.
We stayed at Ocean Pearl Inn for $30US per night for a double room with private bathroom. It was perfectly adequate but quite a long walk from the city centre in the heat!
