Yangon is a city of unparalleled exotic beauty and ideal for escaping the the summer heat

Yangon is one of the best cities in the world to experience the monsoon season. Formerly known as Rangoon, the city is also very unique. Peculiarity in Yangon is not uncommon actually: consider for a moment, the clothes that the people of this town wear which is the longyi – a kind of long skirt, and it is curiously comparable to a type of costume that can sometimes be spotted in India and Bangladesh. What I like about Yangon is the friendliness of the locals, despite the country’s troubled history with people from other countries. When an individual is travelling, the experiences that they have whilst exploring a place that is so magnificently exotic, in my outlook, cannot be good if the locals (of that country) aren’t welcoming. Honestly, why look at all travelers in the same angle and treat them apathetically because of what some foreign people tragically did in the past to Myanmar? That would be very unfair to travelers. Other notable points about Yangon include: its architecture (a mix of the traditional and the old dot the town), street food (try fish-based dishes) and handicrafts.
