Myanmar is beautiful and peaceful and Pagoda country. You probably know that when the British took over all of Myanmar in 1886 the monarchy collapsed and they moved the capital city from Mandalay to Yangon (Rangoon): this remains today as the main gateway to Myanmar although the capital has now moved to Naypyidaw (Pyinmana) The city still hasn't lost its charm despite a mini-boom in the early 1990's which led to the construction of many high-rise buildings and five-star hotels. By South-East Asian standards Yangon retains much of its old world charm and yet is still a bustling city with many diverse cultures. The city dates back over 2,500 years and was formerly called Dagon: around 1755AD King Alaungmintaya renamed the city Yangon.
