More than 180 man-made structures are a part of Yangon’s City Heritage List, and while a trip to this former capital of Burma need not include them all, no visit is complete without at least a few stops to these impressive landmarks.

Bogyoke Aung San Museum

Spend an afternoon in this museum dedicated to the founder of modern Myanmar. This two-story building, which focuses on the revolutionary’s life, was once his residence. Today it houses family photos, famous speeches and the car used the day he was assassinated.

Saint Mary’s Cathedral

In a nation known for Buddhism, Saint Mary’s Cathedral in the Botahtaung Township of Yangon is the largest cathedral in Mayanmar. Built in 1895 with a land grant from India, the cathedral is located at 372 Bo Aung Kyaw Street.

Strand Hotel

Travelers love this luxurious Victorian-style hotel that opened in 1901. Personalized butler service, high ceilings and hand-crafted furniture, as well as local cuisine and classic cocktails make this the perfect spot for an overnight stay or a later-afternoon drink.

Shwedagon Pagoda

Known as the Great Dragon Pagoda, the impressive gem work, gilded stupa and relics of previous Buddhas draw travelers, religious pilgrims and political figures to this impressive pagoda with a spire that can be seen from across Yangon.
