Even if you’ve heard of Yangon, chances are you haven’t visited this mysterious, temple-lined city in Southeast Asia. As the former capital of Myanmar (also called Burma), Yangon has always been just out of reach of explorers—until now. With gold-plated buildings and red-robed monks walking through the streets, it’s a place unlike anywhere else. Book one of Wotif’s cheap flights to Yangon and explore an ancient wonder.
Once you’re in town, taxis are your best bet for getting around. The fares are reasonable, and you can often negotiate with the drivers before the journey begins. If you want to do as the locals do, use your own two feet to get around the downtown Yangon area.
If you take one of the flights to Yangon that touches down mid-morning, make your way to Shwedagon Pagoda and watch as the sunbeams bounce off the golden temple. Here you’ll find the hairs of the fourth Buddha (along with artefacts of the previous three), which is why it’s considered one of the holiest sites in the region.
Arriving at sundown? Drop your bags at your pick of hotels in Yangon and head to 19th Street. This is where piles of spiced meats and seafood sizzle and spit on open grills, as locals drink beer and chat with friends. Order some street food and talk to the locals—they’re known for their friendliness and no doubt have great stories to tell.
To truly experience Yangon, order an iced coffee in local café before walking around the shining temples. It’s a city in bloom, with decaying relics of the 19th-century British rule standing out amidst the more modern images of traffic and smartphones.
When you’re ready for adventure, head to Myanmar. Thanks to Wotif’s deals on tickets to Yangon, you can see more of the city without breaking the bank. Plus, if you want to extend your Southeast Asian trip, consider heading 830km south to Bangkok, the lively capital of Thailand. We can score you the best Bangkok holiday packages so you can enjoy both cities with money to spare. Holiday away!
