Yangon – The City
Yangon is the largest city in Myanmar and the city is an amalgamation of English, Burmese, Chinese and Indian influences, and is known for its colonial architecture, which although decaying and beyond appreciation, remains an almost unique example of a 19th-century British colonial capital. New high-rise buildings were constructed from the 1990s.
Yangon is the most exotic of all Southeast Asian cities. A walk down a typical street, the sights show noticeable commercial and traffic signs written mostly in local alphabet, not to mention the appearance of wandering monks in burgundy robes and the gilded pagodas as this is expected in this Buddhist country, and down to the locals keeping up their appearances.
Mandalay – The City
Mandalay, the very name evokes the splendours of the Burma of old. But, most people will be surprised to learn that Mandalay is not an old city, not even a medieval one, but rather a new city that was created by King Mingdon Min of Burma in 1857 as the new capital of the kingdom of Ava. The city, neatly planned with its lettered roads and numbered streets, is a British creation.
Today, Mandalay lies at the end of the Lashio Road and it is, by Burmese standards, relatively prosperous as a centre for trade with China and as a centre for the growing trade with India. Despite the capital having been moved to Naypyidaw, Mandalay remains by far the main commercial centre of Upper Myanmar.
Nay Pyi Taw – The City
Myanmar is full of surprises and Nay Pyi Taw is one of them. Nay Pyi Taw, its name translates as ‘Royal City’ or ‘Seat of Kings’, is a young capital which, contrary to belief, has much to offer a visitor whether on business or on holiday. Built on a plain which sits between two ranges of hills, the Bago Yoma and Shan Yoma, on a clear day the city has a marvellous backdrop.
It is the capital city of Myanmar and seat of the government of Myanmar. It is administered as the Nay Pyi Taw Union Territory, as per the Constitution. It is unusual among Myanmar’s cities, being an entirely planned city outside of any state or region, similar to Canberra in Australia, or Brasília in Brazil.
As the seat of the government of Myanmar, Nay Pyi Taw is the site of the Union Parliament, the Supreme Court, the Presidential Palace, the official residences of the Cabinet of Myanmar and the headquarters of government ministries and military. Nay Pyi Taw is notable for its unusual combination of large size and very low population density.
