Yangon

Myanmar's largest city and former capital, Yangon is a surprisingly relaxed city, lacking the steel-and-glass high rises that dominate other major Asian capitals. Instead, Yangon's skyline is defined by its rusty tin-roofed homes, old colonial architecture, and, standing above it all, the gleaming gilt of its famous hilltop pagoda, Shwedagon.

Lovely memories of a holiday to Tanzania

Thank you for organising our trip for us - the itinerary was spot on and we had a lovely time together.
