One of the best places to visit in Asia is Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city. Even though it is no longer the nation’s official capital, Yangon remains Myanmar’s largest and important commercial centre, with a population of over five million, and has the largest number of colonial buildings in the region today.Yangon was founded in 1755 by King Alaungpaya; when he dominated the lower part of Myanmar. He was the one who gave the name Yangon, meaning ‘End of Strife’.Yangon is also the place where Shwedagon Pagoda, a 2,500-years old structure, considered one of the seven wonders of the religious world, is located.
