After two full days spent on trains, we arrived in Yangon Christmas Eve. There wasn’t much we felt we needed to see here, aside from a visit to the massive Shwedagon Pagoda, so the main reason we visited at all is because we had a cheap flight back to Bangkok on AirAsia. It was interesting spending Christmas Day here, as it really didn’t feel like Christmas at all. We only spent two nights and one full day here, mostly walking around and relaxing. As such, we’ve decided to simply post some of our favorite pictures and comments here for your enjoyment.
One recommendation we will make for anyone planning a visit to Yangon is to have a meal at Feel Restaurant. This place has many tourists, but also many locals that enjoy trying to pick from their selection of over 50 dishes. Their ice cream was also very good.
Enjoy the pictures!
