Thank you!
Yangon (also known as Rangoon, literally: "End of Strife") is a former capital of Myanmar and the capital of Yangon Region. Although the military government has officially relocated the capital to Naypyidaw since March 2006, Yangon, with a population of over five million, continues to be the country's largest city and the most important commercial centre.

  • Thank you Pilar and John, thank you. The generals moved the capital in 2006 and former government buildings such as the massive Secretariat Building, have been left to rot as the capital is shifted to Naypyidaw, wich is not available for tourists

Although the military government has officially relocated the capital to Naypyidaw since March 2006, Yangon, with a population of over five million, continues to be the country's largest city and the most important commercial centre. Although Yangon's infrastructure is undeveloped compared to those of other major cities in Southeast Asia, it has the largest number of colonial buildings in the region today. While many high-rise residential and commercial buildings have been constructed or renovated throughout downtown and Greater Yangon in the past two decades, most satellite towns that ring the city continue to be deeply impoverished.
