The Best Hostels in Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar

Yangon is the largest city in Myanmar. A mix of British colonial architecture, modern high-rises, and gilded Buddhist pagodas define its skyline. With former political exiles, big-time investors and free-wheeling adventurers all jostling for a place at the city's table, Yangon is the most exciting place to be in Myanmar. Once known as Rangoon, the country's largest metropolis is also its commercial and intellectual hub. And it's reaping the benefits of Myanmar's recent political and economic liberalization. Decaying buildings and monuments are being spruced up. There's a selection of new restaurants, bars and shops. What really matters here, though, is what has always mattered, starting with the awe-inspiring Buddhist monument Shwedagon Paya, a golden pinnacle around which everything else revolves. The city's other notable religious sites include the Botataung and Sule pagodas, both housing Buddhist relics. Equally attractive is downtown Yangon, its pavements teeming with food and book vendors; colorful open-air markets; neighboring temples, mosques and churches, and some of Southeast Asia's most impressive colonial architecture. There are plenty of things to see and do in this area, and, luckily, there are also several cost friendly accommodations to help you enjoy your stay here too.
