The Yangon City Heritage List is a government-designated collection of more than 180 structures that highlights the most important landmarks in Myanmar’s largest city, from temples and churches to hotels, schools, offices, and museums. Here are the don’t-miss sites on the Yangon City Heritage List. 
 
Shwedagon Pagoda
The Golden Pagoda is the most sacred of all Buddhist temples in Myanmar and an icon of the country. If you only visit one landmark in Yangon, make it this one. Dating back to the 6th century, it is thought to hold the relics of four previous Buddhas.
 
Strand Hotel
Opened in 1901, this Victorian-style hotel was one of the most luxurious in the British Empire. Stay in one of the restored suites to get the full experience, or visit Sarkies Bar for an afternoon gin and tonic—the ideal way to rest your feet during a long day of sightseeing.
 
Sule Pagoda
This golden-spired stupa conveniently located in downtown Yangon is believed to have been built before Shwedagon Pagoda. Legend says the stupa contains a strand of the Buddha’s hair.
 
Bogyoke Aung San Market
When you’re ready for some shopping, head to this colonial-era market to browse jewelry, lacquerware, and art. Also known as Scott’s Market, the building dates back to 1926.
 
Yangon Central Railway Station
First built in 1877 by the British before being demolished and then rebuilt in the 1950s, this train station in central Yangon is the biggest in Myanmar. Even if you’re not catching a train, go to watch the bustle of activity inside and admire the Burmese design.
 
Chaukhtatgyi Buddha Temple
A 215-foot-long (66-meter-long) Reclining Buddha lies inside this temple in the Bahan area of Yangon. First built in the early 1900s, the old statue was destroyed and redone with glass eyes in the 1950s.
 
Yangon City Hall
Designed by the same Burmese architect who created the central railway station, City Hall was built in the 1930s and is located downtown, near Sule Pagoda.
