Cruises from Yangon (Rangoon)
Yangon, aka Rangoon, is Myanmar’s largest city and most important commercial centre. It is regarded as the Garden City of the East, and is also famous for its entirely unfamiliar cuisine. Interestingly, due to its international isolation over the last five decades, Yangon has been left not only with its unmistakably colonial style buildings - downtown is a warren of historic streets concealing some of the best British colonial-era architecture - but also an enduring colonial charm and that has all but disappeared elsewhere. Then there’s the Museum that is home to priceless rubies, sapphires, jade and the world's largest pearl that was discovered in 2001.
