Sights of Yangon, Myanmar

For those regulars on Flyertalk and other forums frequented by people like me I'm sure you all know just WHY I found myself in Yangon this past January. For the rest of you, let's just say I got a deal on flights that was too good to pass up. But besides that, I have always had Myanmar on my to do list so I was very excited to visit. It's a pity due to time limitations I could only visit the capital, but perhaps I will  head over to Mandalay on my next trip.

I thought some pics would be appreciated so here we go....


View of Yangon from my hotel the Clover City Centre - some very run down buildings here!

I had a great couple of days in Yangon, really looking forward to coming back.
