Yangon, formerly Rangoon, is the dazzling capital of ancient Burma, now known as Myanmar. The city of Yangon today occupies the site of a 2,500-year-old Burmese settlement known as Okkala. The city's history revolves around the ancient Shwedagon Pagoda, which dates back to the original settlement. Visitors to Rangoon are impressed with the historic preservation and charm of the city and are mesmerized by the golden pagoda, adorned with 5,417 diamonds and 2,317 other precious stones.
Relax and enjoy your day as you cruise along the river and take in the magnificent scenery.
Bagan (Pagan) is a temple town located on the eastern bank of the Ayeyarwady River, in central Myanmar (Burma). Bagan is famous for its Buddhist monuments, which include approximately 2,000 pagodas and temples in varying stages of preservation covering an area of 16 square miles. Most of the area around Bagan is flat and connected by paths, making bike rental or horse cart a popular way to see the sights.
The second largest city in Burma evokes the grandeur of the past with the Royal Palace of the Konbaung Dynasty glistening high on Mandalay Hill. What was once the former capital of Myanmar, is now a home to Buddhist monaseries and Myanmar masonry.
Ayeyarwady River (Irrawaddy)
Myanmar's largest river flows north to south. It is a commercial waterway formed by the confluence of the Nmai and Mali rivers that flows through the Irrawaddy Delta into the Andaman Sea. It is referred to the as "The Road to Mandalay." Burmese and Chinese locals who live by the rivers are predominately agricultural farmers.
