    This is a massive Buddha that is lying down and is absolutely huge !
    Worth a visit and is free entry.Its in a shed and the place is quite odd as the statue is the what the building has been built around.

    This is a quirky old museum that has lots of treasures on 6 floors of artifacts. Alot of it is different and very relevant to the local Burmese culture and traditions. However it is spread out over lots of floors and sections and your could take a day to see the lot if your were interested.

    This pagoda is easy to find because it located at downtown. However, it is under construction in some area in March 2023

    This is a place that is so sad to see. How many people lost their life in such a brutal way. Reminds us freedom is often very hard to achieve

    It is located in Botahtaung township of Yangon. Car-parking is available. Many tourists from Thailand also visit there. Its not very good for photo scene. Its one of the famous pagoda in Yangon.

    An essential part of any trip to Yangon - the synagogue has been beautifully maintained by Sammy Samuels and family (despite a small jewish population of about 20).

    The Kandawgyi Park is in centre of Yangon. The main attraction here is the Karaweik Palace which is in one corner of Kandawgyi lake.The park has many trees lining the outer edge. The park now is not maintained well and not many visitors.

    This is a must visit place to understand brutality of british and colonial pas. Bahadur Shah Zafar is the last Mughal King. he was been chained and exile to Myanmar from India. He died and buried in the place.

    Good and peaceful place to visit. Buddha statue in sitting position. Unfortunately it was under maintenance when I visited so the statue was completely covered. Enjoy the rare pics.

    Fascinating and informative presentation in a beautifully restored home is a tribute to U Thant and his life’s work. I was not familiar with his career within the UN during a time of global upheavals - very glad I went! Highly recommended
