Rangoon (Yangon) holidays

Burma’s former capital and its biggest city, Rangoon (Yangon) is a relatively young city. It became the capital in 1885 when the British completed its conquest of Northern Burma. In its early history, it was known as Dagon, the district in which the magnificent Shwedagon Pagoda is located. The capital was moved to Nay Pyi Taw in central Burma quite unexpectedly in November 2005. Despite this, Rangoon remains the country’s commercial and diplomatic capital.
