Myanmar - Getting to know Yangon

Although, since 2006, it’s no longer officially the country’s capital city, Yangon - named Rangoon by the British during colonial years - is Myanmar’s largest & most internationally famous metropolis. Although relatively undeveloped compared to other large Asian cities, a boom in foreign investment over recent years has meant international companies such as KFC and Pizza Hut have started to pop up alongside decaying colonial-era buildings and traditional shop-houses, somewhat balanced by an effort to conserve the city's historic properties.
