Yangon (population nearly 5,000,000 (2007 census)), formerly Rangoon, is the largest city and former capital of Myanmar (previously known as Burma, prior to 1989). The city is located at the convergence of the Yangon and Bago Rivers about 19 miles (30 km) away from the Gulf of Martaban. At 16°48' North, 96°09' East (16.8, 96.15), its standard time zone is UTC/GMT +6:30 hours. In November 2005, the military junta began relocating the capital to Naypyidaw, Mandalay Division which was officially named as the new capital on 26 March 2006.[1]

Yangon is a combination of the two words yan and koun , which mean "enemies" and "run out of" respectively. It is also translated as "end of strife". "Rangoon" most likely comes from the British corruption of the pronunciation of "Yangon" in the Arakanese dialect of Burmese.

After leading of Military Leader General Ne Win from 1962, Yangon is relatively undeveloped as compared to other major cities in Southeast Asia. Construction is booming, mostly through the influx of foreign investment (from Singapore and China). Many multi-storied residential and commercial buildings (taik) have been reconstructed or remodelled throughout Downtown and the Greater Yangon areas. Yangon has the largest number of colonial buildings in Southeast Asia today.[2] Government offices inside colonial buildings (e.g. High Court, City Hall, Bogyoke Market and General Hospital) have been listed for renovation.[3] New Towns and other suburban areas, such as Thaketa Township continue to be impoverished.

Yangon is a member of Asian Network of Major Cities 21.


Yangon was founded as Dagon in the 500s by the Mon, who had dominated the lower portions of present-day Myanmar at the time. Dagon was a small fishing village centred about the Shwedagon Pagoda. In 1753, King Alaungpaya conquered Lower Burma, and renamed Dagon, "Yangon". The city was destroyed by a fire in 1841, and suffered extensive damage in the Second Anglo-Burmese War of 1852.
The British Empire seized Yangon in 1852 and transformed it into the commercial and political hub of Burma, and Anglicized the name to "Rangoon." As Lower Burma became integrated into British India, the city's present boundaries were established, with the Cantonment's streets (Downtown) paved in a chessboard fashion along the eastern banks of the Yangon River following the Second Anglo-Burmese War, planned by military engineers Fraser and Montgomerie, and developed by the Public Works Department and the Bengal Corps of Engineers. In addition, the British introduced a westernised educational system to Burma, establishing major colleges, such as Government College (merged with Judson College to form the modern-day Yangon University) and the Theological College for Karens (modern-day Myanmar Institute of Theology). In addition, many religiously-affiliated boarding schools were built to teach English, Anglo-Burmese and Christian Karen children. During the colonial period, Rangoon's main industries were rice and timber, although other exports, such as raw cotton, precious stones, cheroots, and ivory were also exported. By the early 1900s, Rangoon had public services and infrastructure on par with London.[4]
Rangoon was heavily damaged by an earthquake and tsunami in 1930, and again during World War II. After the war, it retained its position as capital of Myanmar. Before WWII, Indians formed the majority in Rangoon; after independence, the population became more Bamar although the Anglo-Burmese continued to form around a quarter of the total population of the city through to the late 1960s. (Note: Currently, ethnic minority populations in the city are gradually increasing). Because of the dismantling of the colonial policies that encouraged Indian and Chinese immigration, as well as the departure of most of the Caucasian population with its intermixing with the local Bamar, the presence of these ethnicities has dwindled significantly. The English name Rangoon was officially changed in 1989 to Yangon, at the same time as many names throughout the country were changed. While this change does reflect the correct pronunciation of the city in the local dialect, it was nonetheless controversial because the military junta that changed the name is not officially recognised as legitimate by some governments and citizens. For example, the United States government still maintains the usage of the old names of "Rangoon" and "Burma". At the same time, street names were changed to Burmese names. However, many locals continue to use British names for major streets. In 1996, to protect some colonial buildings under government jurisdiction, the Burmese government devised a "Heritage List", of buildings to preserve. Yangon was the site of the World Buddhist Summit in December 2004, which was attended by over 1,000 monks and world leaders including Thaksin Shinawatra, Prime Minister of Thailand. On 6 November 2005, the junta began its move from Yangon to the newly-developed city of Naypyidaw, 200 miles (322 km) north in Mandalay Division. The motives for this were unclear. The leading theory in Myanmar states that the leader Than Shw, who places great faith in astrology, moved the capital based on an astrological prediction to prevent a looming doom. It has also been suggested that the regime moved further inland for a better position in the event of an Iraq-style invasion. Other theories include easier control of Karen, Shan, and Chin States, and that the regime wanted a capital free from foreign telecommunications.
As of mid-2006, residents living in certain townships of Yangon have been required to hang family photographs (of members inhabiting a home) for security purposes.[6] Likewise, residents of Yangon must keep a list of family members. Visitors and guests living in the homes of Yangon residents must register with local authorities prior to moving in.


Yangon is administered by the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC). YCDC also coordinates urban planning.[8] The city is divided into four districts. The districts combined have a total of 32 townships. The mayor of Yangon currently is Brigadier General Aung Thein Lynn. Each township is administered by a committee of township leaders, who make decisions regarding city beautification and infrastructure.

Urban lifestyle

Bogyoke Aung San Market, one of Yangon's oldest shopping places, has also been a tourist hotspot and a hangout for teenagers. Although a major Asian city, the pace of life is somewhat relaxed, as the city offers enormous amounts of getaway locations. Many people of the city of Yangon go shopping, hanging out with friends or go to places such as Peoples' Park and Peoples' Square, Kandawgyi Park, Hlawgar Park on weekends. Some people leave the city on weekends to visit beach resorts such as Chaung Tha Beach and Ngwe Saung Beach which are in Ayerwaddy Division. Youths of Yangon tend to stay within the city and use the weekends to relax. Most Yangonites spend their time at the almost ubiquitious tea-shops, which can be found in any corner or street of the city. Religion does not play a very influential role in the capital as it would compared to other cities.

Yangon is the economic centre of Myanmar. The currency is known as the "Kyat". The majority of imports and exports come through Yangon, mostly through the Yangon River (Hlaing River), which merges with the Ayeyarwady River (also known as the Irrawaddy River, the main river of Myanmar. In 2004, the government authorised Shanghai Jingqiao Export Processing Zone Development Corporation to create plans for Myanmar's largest Special Economic Zone, to be built in Thanlyin Township, adjacent to Thilawa Port. The plans were finished in 2006, and approval is pending.

Buses and Cars

Buses are cramped with daily commuters. Cars, although expensive, have become increasingly common on Yangon's streets, and there is much traffic congestion. The government regularly places restrictions on car imports. As a result, the black market is the primary source of used and new cars (which primarily come from Thailand, Japan and China). Drivers travel on the right side of the road. In addition, because the government rations petrol, the majority of cars utilise both government-supplied and black market-supplied gasoline. Within Yangon, it is illegal to drive trishaws, bicycles, and motorcycles.

Rail Roads

The railroads extend to upper Myanmar from Yangon Central Railway Station . There is a circuit rail system inside the city which connects all parts of the city.

Yangon Colonial Buildins

GRAND state office buildings, richly decorated pagodas and elegant diplomatic missions are among nearly 200 buildings regarded by the Yangon City Development Committee as being worthy of preservation because of their heritage value. The buildings are identified on a list which includes the nation’s most revered religious site, the Shwedagon Pagoda. Other religious buildings cited for their heritage value include monasteries, mosques, temples and churches. According to criteria set by the YCDC, buildings on the list must be of architectural significance, more than 50 years old and not under private ownership. As reported in Myanmar Times (‘Preservation a priority: YCDC,’ page 1, Vol 4, No 75), the list resulted from a survey conducted in 1996. Heritage buildings can be renovated, subject to the YCDC’s approval and as long as their original design and appearance are not changed. The materials used in the renovations must not detract from the building’s appearance, said U Tin Maung Oo, the assistant head of the YCDC’s engineering department (building). Any heritage buildings which are damaged are repaired as soon as possible. U Tin Maung Oo said repair work began immediately last year after the porch collapsed at the Myanma Railways headquarters at the corner of Bogyoke Aung San Street and Sule Pagoda Road. The list is published below. In some cases the names of buildings have changed since the list was compiled.
