Part 4 brings us to the largest city in Myanmar, Yangon.

Yangon is multi-cultural. It’s a little modern, but also very traditional. There are large parks. Important religious sites. And food! Lots of delicious food! We spend a day getting to know the cultures that make up Myanmar by eating their food. For breakfast, Shan noodle soup. Lunch: Indian food. For dinner we head to Chinatown’s 9th street for BBQ meat on sticks. In between meals, we visit Shwedagon pagoda – the holiest place in all of Myanmar.
