No longer the capital city of Myanmar, Yangon is still a culture and tourism hub of the country. While the temperatures remain pretty constant throughout the months, the level of rainfall shows significant variance between wet season from May till October. An extraordinary feature of Yangon is that the speed of modernization doesn’t interfere in the religious life of local people. The monks still practice many traditional rituals, and the Shwedagon pagoda is still a worship place despite open to international tourists. Traveling to Yangon is a chance to uncover the myths about an amazing Buddhist country on the way to find its position in the fast-changing world.
