Personal highlights

  1. Yangon: industrial port city and former capital of Myanmar
  2. Diversity: religious sites, green parks, colonial architecture
  3. Metropolis: 7,5 million people, yet it does not seem overcrowded
  4. Rooftop Bars: overlooking the city from several high buildings
  5. My experience: enjoy walking around in different areas
