     Yangon is with a population of over five million people, Yangon is the bustling former capital of Myanmar. The city boasts  verdant parks, beautiful colonial buildings and the famous Shwedagon Pagoda. Yangon was declared the capital of  Myanmar in the late 19th Century by the British. They rebuilt the town after a fire destroyed it in 1841, hence the colonial  influences in the architecture. The British renamed the city Rangoon, however it has been restored to its original Burmese  name of Yangon since 1989 when the country was also renamed Myanmar (replacing the British name of Burma).






​       
Bagan with the advent of the 11th century and till the end of the 13th century, kings, generals and dignitaries spared no effort to have brick put upon brick, to build temples and pagodas one after the other with the solitary aim of favourably influencing their re-incarnation. It is believed as many as 12,000 temples and stupas once stood in the area; however, invasions, war and natural disasters have reduced most of these to rubble. Despite this, Bagan is home to more than 2,200 standing ancient temples today and as such, is Myanmar’s greatest architectural site. As there are more than 2000 temples & stupas. Indeed it is difficult to cover all temples within limited time. Therefore we have carefully selected only some major temples for you in order to avoid hectic tourism.
