Yangon's Fascinating Architectural History


Many of our customers are as intirgued by Yangon's colonial architecture as they are by the food we share with them. Both the food and the cityscape of downtown tell the story of difficult decades past, colonialist lifestyles and the transition into modern times.  

Ornately designed government buildings left behind by the British, luxury department stores, flotilla company headquarters to the quaint balconies of the residences of civil servants and wealthy merchants. All of these buildings pepper downtown and add a fascinating aspect to this South East Asian former capital city.

Anyone interested in exploring more of Yangon's architecture still standing from the colonial era, check out this Blog with a map and information on some downtown highlights. Some of the beautiful buildings mentioned along with many others we will also come across on our tours and often can take the time to eat while pondering the lives of these buildings.
