Yangon is Myanmar's largest city and it is the most commercially important. A stunning location, it boasts a skyline dominated by a sacred Buddhist temple, Shwedagon Paya, which attracts pilgrims from across the globe. The 325ft zedi is adorned with gold leaf, diamonds and other gems. In recent years, Yangon's economic fortunes have prospered, as local and foreign investors have been eager to grab a foothold. Many expats in Yangon have chosen the location due to the vast number of economic opportunities on offer, as land is becoming more valuable. However, expat life shouldn't be just about work. Take the time to take in the breathtaking beauty of Yangon, with stunning Buddhist monuments such as Botataung Paya and the recently renovated People's Park, with its flower gardens, fountains and ponds. There is also a diverse selection of shops, ranging from a department store to markets and arts and crafts waiting to be explored, as well as over 70 restaurants for all tastes.
