  • Good location and nice neighborhood

    by

    I stayed in Yuzana Hotel in April and July 2013. Good location (about 10-15 minutes walking distance to Shwedagon Pagoda) and nice neighborhood, if one prefer to escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown environment. Room with basic amenity i.e. equipped with Air conditioning, Minibar, Satellite TV, Telephone, Bathroom with hot and cold water (with bathtub). As at July 2013, Yuzana does not accept any kind of Credit Cards except CASH in USD. Superior Room has NO View whereas Deluxe Room has either City View or Pagoda View.

    Hotel staff is helpful and room with WIFI when my stay in July 2013.

    I have stayed at this hotel many times

    by

    I have stayed at this hotel many times. I like it because of the location, not too far from downtown, but far enough to avoid the noise and pollution. The rooms are spacious and cleaned everyday. Satellite TV and a mini-refrigerator are standard in every room. It is within walking distance (10-15 minutes) of the Shwedagon pagoda. An added bonus of this hotel is the view of the pagoda from the 6th floor room(s) which is nothing less than spectacular! So make sure you ask for a pagoda view room. Also, there is a big grocery/department store on the ground floor of the hotel where you can purchase just about anything. The last time I stayed there wi-fi access was available only in the lobby. When I asked the front desk about wi-fi availability in the rooms they said they were working on it. Perhaps they have installed it in the rooms by now. Prices there were very reasonable. Two years ago, the room rates were only US$25/night for a single or double with breakfast included. Unfortunately, because of the current supply and demand, I believe it is now close to $90!

    Unique Quality: The main advantages are:
    1. You can walk to the Shwedagon pagoda
    2. Supermarket adjacent to the hotel lobby
    3. Rooms with the pagoda view (subject to availability)

    Directions: If you are coming from the airport, the best way is to take Pyay Road. Along this route you will see the great Shwedagon pagoda. After Pyay Road merges into U Wisara Road, make a left turn at Link Road. Yuzana Hotel is about 400-500 meters on the right.

Re: Tips on do´s and don´ts in Rangoon

Hi Dave,
Actually it depends on how much time you have in Yangon (that’s how most people call it now instead of Rangoon). There is no doubt that the greatest attraction there is by far the 2,500 years old Shwedagon Pagoda, and I recommend you to spend at least 3-4 hours there, and better take a guide to explain your way around. There are many more secondary attractions in Yangon, including several pagodas (Gaba Aye, Botataung, Sule), the Chaukhtatgyi reclining Buddha image, the Bogyoke market for doing some shopping and the China Town. Keep in mind that you’ll have to take off your shoes before entering any holly area (pagodas included), so I recommend you to take with you convenient shoes and wet tissues for cleaning your feet from time to time. Another practical advice - keep with you a bottle of drinking water in your backpack and be sure to drink a lot.
Back to sightseeing, if you spare another day or two, I warmly recommend you to visit the nearby Kyaiktiyo (Golden Rock) and even spend the night there - that’s an unforgettable experience.
Cheers,
Marius

As the previous poster said, it all depends on how much time you have. And how long you are going to spend overal in Burma. There is a lot to see in Yangon itself. But i personally find that apart from Shwedagon the best attractions are not in or near Yangon. Let us know how long you have, and we'll come up with answers

One of my favorite things to do is just walk around town, especially in the area between Bogyoke Market and the river (which includes Sule pagoda and Mahabandoola Park). Very colorful street scenes and friendly people. You will probably meet people (even Monks) that want to practice their English, and they may invite you to one of their classes. If you get an inviation like that, take the time and do it. Very friendly people. Stop in a teashop for hot cup of tea and some tasty snacks. Any will do, but I like the Yatha teashop on Mahabandoola Road, a few blocks east of Sule pagoda. To beat the heat, you may want to visit the branch of Happy world in People's Park (a few blocks northwest of Shwedagon) and use their swimming pools and water slides. Whenever my friends and I go we are always the only foreigners there. It's a great way to see how the locals relax and have fun. Yangon is great just for absorbing the atmosphere and character of the people. Explore and enjoy.

WALK AROUND- IN A LONGYI....

by LAOWAI

WALK AROUND- IN A LONGYI. Seriously, people will treat you nicer and you will fit in better by wearing a longyi. And they're more comfortable than pants. Don't take much with you to Burma as you can buy shirts for $1 and longyi for $1 or less.

And make sure to pick up a local, government newspaper as a collector's item- there are some classic quotes to take from it. Just walking around and meeting people. Wherever you go, whereever you sit, people will casually stroll up to you and sit down. After a minute they will start a conversation with you, and within 2 mintutes you will hear their life story and how much they HATE the government. Truly fascinating, but after 2 weeks of it, it gets tiring.

The worst part is that they obviously all want something from you, which is understandable, and they are so nice about it. But when you have people asking you in one breath to smuggle a letter out of the country, and then int the next telling you that they agree with Ann San that foreigners should stay out of Burma... you see what I mean?

Rangoon Tip

by Krystynn

And this is the perfect 'model' Burmese kitchen! Kidding.

O.K., don't laugh at me now... but I have never seen a real well before in my entire life. So, finding these nice Burmese women (see photo below) washing their dishes by the well was soooo interesting for me! I offered to help them with the dishes... but they shoo-ed me away! ;-(

P.S. Just between us, I was really sad to discover that the Burmese women here were treated like 2nd class citizens. For example, when there are guests to be entertained, they don't eat together with the men... They kept on serving the guests and put everyone's needs above theirs!! After a while, I stood up from the dinner table and told them (the women) to sit down with me otherwise I was going to join them in the kitchen too! Oh, believe me, they were horrified. They sat down with me for just a short while (I guess to please me)...before disappearing into the kitchen again! Sigh.

When visiting a temple ....

by K1W1

You will be expected to remove your footwear and then walk clockwise around the temple. The reason for this is a symbolic sign of respect by keeping your right hand, which is deemed cleaner than your left, towards the holy shrine.

Spitoons

by ishi01

Apparently, it is still fashionable to chew on betel nut and tobacco in Myanmar, expecially amongs the older generations. Walking down the street you might just run into spitoons strategically placed on the pavements.
