What's special about Yangon?

Backyard Travel’s tailored Yangon tours let you experience this city through local eyes. While Yangon is no longer Myanmar’s capital, the city is still the cultural center of the country, boasting religious sites, handsome colonial architecture, and unmissable cultural and historical attractions.



CHARACTER

Yangon may be Myanmar’s largest city, but the unassuming, laid-back demeanor of most residents will sometimes make you feel more in a rural village than in a busy economic center.



CLIMATE

The months between November and February are relatively cool and dry. Spring temperatures can be balmy, while rains are common between May and September.



ENTERTAINMENT

Yangon offers everything from calm rooftop bars to fine garden restaurants and decadent luxury. During the day, enjoy traditional dance performances and local teas.



CULTURE

Yangon is decidedly Myanmar’s cultural capital, home to the most sacred Buddhist temples, the most comprehensive museums, and even the most eclectic live music shows.



LANGUAGE

Burmese is the most widely spoken language in Yangon. Immigrants from the countryside often speak local dialects, and Myanmar’s colonial past and growing tourist trade make basic English common.



HISTORY

Myanmar’s capital was moved to Naypyidaw in a recent national reorganization effort. The 11th-century city of Yangon, however, served as a royal and colonial capital for over a century.
