    Central and convenient location

    by

    This was where I stayed on my first trip to Yangon. Location wise is pretty good because it is situated in a quite street but close to Bogyoke Aung San Market and Sule Pagoda (about 10-15 walk). There are several shops and food places nearby. My room had comfortable beds and free albeit slow wifi (plus points).

    Breakfast is your usual Western fare and local noodles. Staff are polite and helpful. So far nothing to complain about, except the smell of fragrant incense all over the hotel. It's a little strong for me but it's fine.

    Be warned because this hotel (and other business hotels) can be fully booked so it will be wise to make bookings well ahead.

    Unique Quality: Apparently a "happening" nightspot resides at the Parkroyal Hotel called "Music Club". Expats and locals (even men in their longyi) drink and dance in this club located in the hotel basement.

    There are also several halls here for business functions or fancy events for wealthy locals.

ROYAL YANGON HOTEL

by robertec

I am travelling to Myanmar mid December 07. I plan to stay in Yangon for 4 days before heading to Mandalay. A friend suggested to stay at Royal Yangon Hotel (cnr Payr Road & 8 Mile Road.) Has anyone stayed there or knows about this hotel. Information will be appreciated. Thanks

Robert, I stayed at the Park Royal Yangon Hotel a few days and it's excellent; I can highly recommend it. Park Royal Yangon website is http://yangon.parkroyalhotels.com/ and its address is 33 Alan Pya Phaya Road; I believe it's the same you refer to, but you better double check it.

Regarding your itinerary, 4 days is probably a lot of time for Yangon; most tourists stay there less and prefer to spend more time in other areas, such as Bagan, Inle Lake, or adding a visit to the nearby Kyaikhtiyo, etc.

Anyway, I am sure that you will enjoy.
Cheers,
Marius

Dear Marius,
Thanks for information. I will check out the address to make sure its the same hotel .

Regarding my stay in Yangon, I need a few days to meet up with some old friends and a few extended family members. I have also relatives in Mandalay and Pyin Oo Lwin. I have been to the places you mentioned and maybe if time allows visit Taungyi again. Thank you for your help.
Kind regards
Robert

No. Park Royal Yangon Hotel and Royal Yangon Hotel at 8 mile junction is different. Previously it was (YCDC) Yangon City Development Council ( Government Hotel) then become Regional Army Headquarter. After (SPDC) State Peace and Development Council , move to Naypyidaw , it was rented to public and recently renovated. Since , it is newly renovated, looks clean from outside.
I haven't been there yet. For location wise, it is near to airport but far from city center like Bokyauk Market(Scott Market)(30 minutes drive) and Shwedagon Pagoda(20 minutes drive) . If you want to rooming around in City Center, it is not good choice.

Park Royal Yangon is more downtown and near to Bokyauk Market and city center. Manage and operated by Singapore Company , if I'm not wrong.

Just update. The hotel you mention is not Royal Yangon Hotel, it called "Hotel Yangon" only.
You should come earlier and enjoy Tazaungdine festival (Balloon festival) on this month 24 th November in Taunggyi.

Travel Tips for Rangoon

No more tourist boycott

by TheSentinel

The tourist boycott is no longer an issue as no-one within the country is calling for it to be enforced. Also tourism is a very minor source of income for the country, so it would have no effect. The Myanmar economy is based on trade with India, Japan and China, so only if these countries chose to cease trading would an economic boycott have some influence. Additionally, most of the population is now resigned to the current regime and there is no longer a big appetite for change, outside a shrinking number of activists. It is said that at the crucial time a few years back there was a general lack of courage in the population to make that final sacrifice and push for change, which occurred in so many other countries.

stroll along the streets of...

by Krystynn

stroll along the streets of Yangon (formerly known as 'Rangoon') and just observe the hustle and bustle of a typical day in the life of a Burmese here.

Do be careful when you are out walking the streets at night though. At times, there may be a curfew imposed by the military government. When I was there during the month of May (oh, and NEVER go in May either... The weather's BOILING HOT!! Ouch!!), everyone is expected to be indoors by 10 p.m. So, if you want to be safe and avoid bumping into one of those military guards, please be careful and take the usual necessary precautions. Fondest memory? I guess the thing that really intrigued me most were the people (both men and women) dressing in 'longyis' (like a sarong). I reckoned at least 99.9% of the population here are dressed in this way, including the professionals (doctors, lawyers et al). I also managed to bump into lots of monks here. In the mornings, long lines of monks can be seen in the towns and villages making their alms rounds, receiving whatever food offered by the people.

Yes, Myanmar is a land of predominantly Buddhist people. Buddhism has been thriving in Myanmar since the 11th century, or pehaps even earlier. No wonder Myanmar is sometimes referred to as the Land of Pagodas!

See Shwedagon Paya from far away

by herzog63

When you are in Yangon and of course not in the middle of a street but up high you can see the Golden Zedi of Shwedagon Paya from just about anywhere. It is the tallest building around and the area is very flat.

Welcome to my Teahouse

by Hewer

Whenever you order tea at a teahouse in Yangon, the staff will automatically bring bean curd cakes and a few cigarettes to accompany your order. Of course you don't have to smoke and eat all of this - you are charged on consumption.

The hot tea served in the teahouses is made using condensed milk. You get drink a free thermos of green tea after your cup also. It's a great atmosphere sitting there at night and enjoying a bit of chit chat.

For a cup of tea, two or three cups of green tea, a cake and (dare I say) a couple if cigarettes, expect to pay about 200 kyat (23 cents).

Star Cola

by herzog63

Star Cola is the more affordable alternative to you Coca Cola and Pepsi Cola drinkers. Star Cola is less than US$.25 cents where the real coca cola was quite expensive comparitivly speaking. I think the Coca Cola was brought in from Thailand. My son liked it and he also liked the local brand of Quench and others. I'm not a soda drinker so I didn't try them.
