Yangon

Yangon is the former capital and largest city in Myanmar. Our guesthouse was in the center of the old colonial city. Actually it was how I imagined the colonial british-indian empire to be in the past. Yangon’s old city is a dense, sweating hot mixture of burmese, indian and chinese origin. The blocks are up to floors high and the number of people living and working inside is amazing. All is bustling and each square meter seems to be used. Good luck that inside the city motorbikes are forbitten, else surving on the outside would be hard to manage.
