Yangon

YangonScott Market (YANGON) Yangon (Literally meaning End-of -Strife) is the capital of Myanmar as well as the gateway to Myanmar. It lies 34 km upriver from the Gulf of Mottama (Mataban). It is a gracious once-colonial city, laid out in a conventional "colonial grid" pattern resembling a chessboard, planned by the British city planners.
Yangon is proud of the towering gold-crusted Shwedagon Pagoda, which is best known for its grandeur and awe-inspiring greatness. Described by Rudyard Kipling (1898) as "a beautiful, winking wonder that blazed in the sun, of a shape that was neither Muslim dome nor Hindu temple spire," Shwedagon Pagoda is the one of the most magnificent monuments on earth. It is said to have been built over 2,500 years ago and Four Relics of the FOUR BUDDHAS are enshrined in it. The Pagoda is covered with 60 tons of pure gold and Its Umbrella or Tip is set with diamonds, rubies, sapphires and emeralds. Other places of interest are the Sule Pagoda, the Kaba Aye (World Peace) Pagoda, Chauk-Htat-gyi Pagoda, National Museum, Bogyoke Aung San (Scott) Market, and Colonial Buildings.
Many old colonial style buildings are still standing in YANGON, many of which are now occupied by government offices. The City Hall is one of the grandest, an impressive stone structure with classical colonial style and integrated with a Myanmar touch. The Supreme Court, High Court, General Post Office, Strand Hotel, Port Authority Building, Custom House and Railway Administrative Building are also magnificent remembrances of the bygone era.

Bagan

BaganBagan was ancient capital of the first Myanmar Empire, founded by King Anawrahta. What is more, Anawrahta accomplished another great task for the country: he introduced Theravada Buddhism into Myanmar with the help of Shin Arahan, a mission monk from THATON. It is one of the richest archaeological sites in Southeast Asia. Bagan preserves 2217 well-renovated Stupas (Buddhist religious monuments) according to the most contemporary references, however, these figures do not count brick mounds, which would totalize nearly 4000 separate visible sites. Pagodas and Temples represent the diversity of ancient Myanmar architectural styles in the 11th to13th centuries. Intricate frescoes or mural paintings depicting the life of Buddha decorate the interiors of the Pagodas and Stupas. Bagan has so many mesmerizing scenes that impress one's memory forever.

Mandalay

MandalayMandalay was the last capital of the third Myanmar Empire. It is located 668 km north from Yangon. Mandalay's value lies in that it is a repository of late Myanmar history. Mandalay embodies all the elements of Myanmar's ancient educational, social and cultural system. Mandalay is the home and guardian of the best traditions of Myanmar music and dance .The Mandalayans preserves the proper spoken language of Myanmar. Symbols of religion are richer in Mandalay than in any of the living Myanmar city. It is the principal centre for studies of Buddhist literature. The other tourist attractions are Mandalay Hill, Mya-nan-san-kyaw Golden Palace, the old city walls and the moat; Mahamuni Image of Buddha, which is the most revered and sacred site of Mandalay; Kyauk-taw-gyi Buddha, white Marble huge seated image of the Buddha carved from a single block of stone; Kuthodaw Pagoda with the entire Buddhist scriptures inscribed on 729 marble slabs, known as the "World's Biggest Book"; Shwenandaw Kyaung (Golden Palace Monastery), a superb example of a traditional Myanmar wooden monastery.
One account states that during the reign of King Mindon, steamers began to come up to INNWA (AVA) and AMARAPURA. Since both towns were on the bank of the AYEYARWADDY (IRRAWADDY) RIVER, it would have been possible for the Europeans to bring artillery pieces up-river aboard the trading ships and to shell the then capital of AMARAPURA. King Mindon therefore decided that the capital should be moved some distance from the river, beyond the range of enemy fire. This must have been the original reason of founding MANDALAY though there were some other reasons.

Heho (Inle Lake)

Heho(Inle)One of the most picturesque spots in Myanmar, probably in Southeast Asia, Inle Lake sprawls at about 30km south of Taunggyi. This vast picturesque lake with its mesmerizing beauty is situated roughly 1000m above sea level and surrounded by hazy Blue Mountains. In fact INLE LAKE and surrounding region is an outstanding alternative to the historical sites of BAGAN and MANDALAY. It is best known for its villages built on stilts over the surface of the Lake and gardens on floating islands created from mud and reed. Innthas (native lake-dwellers thought to have migrated from Southern Myanmar) glide about on the lake in their boats, propelled by one leg rowing. Although the unique leg-rowers are the most famous attraction in the region, there's more. Some highlights of INLE are PHAUNG DAW OO PAGODA (home to five Buddha Images, said to have brought back to Myanmar from southern Thailand over 700 years ago), the 200-year-old wooden NGA PHE KYAUNG MONASTERY (a place to see the lovely "Jumping Cats"), and YWAMA VILLAGE (formerly floating market site). As the only mode of transportation is boat and motorboat, Inle is figuratively named the "Venice of the East"
