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.
Yangon is the largest city in Myanmar and the industrial and commercial centre of the country. When you visit Yangon, visiting Shwedagon Pagoda is a must. 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. Other than pagodas, museums such as National Museum, Bogyoke Museum and Gems Museum display historical events of Myanmar.
Relax at the beautiful beaches of Chaung Thar and Ngwe Saung.
Mandalay The City
The countrys second largest population (just over 1.2 million) and is the second busiest trade hub (linking China and India with Yangon). It has Myanmars second oldest university, second busiest airport and second most successful football team.
Industries include tea packing, silk weaving, brewing and distilling, jade cutting, brass and copper casting, and gold-leaf work. Matches, wood carvings and goldware and silverware are also produced. Mandalay is linked by train and air south to Yangon and north to Myitkyina and to Lashio, where the Burma road begins. The nearby towns of Ava, Amarapura, and Sagaingare suburbs of Mandalay.
Nay Pyi Taw The City
Myanmar is full of surprises and Nay Pyi Taw is one of them. Nay Pyi Taw, its name translates as Royal City or Seat of Kings, is a young capital which, contrary to belief, has much to offer a visitor whether on business or on holiday. Built on a plain which sits between two ranges of hills, the Bago Yoma and Shan Yoma, on a clear day the city has a marvellous backdrop.
It is the capital city of Myanmar and seat of the government of Myanmar. It is administered as the Nay Pyi Taw Union Territory, as per the Constitution. It is unusual among Myanmars cities, being an entirely planned city outside of any state or region, similar to Canberra in Australia, or Brasilia in Brazil.
As the seat of the government of Myanmar, Nay Pyi Taw is the site of the Union Parliament, the Supreme Court, the Presidential Palace, the official residences of the Cabinet of Myanmar and the headquarters of government ministries and military. Nay Pyi Taw is notable for its unusual combination of large size and very low population density.
