Port / river area., Rangoon
This river also known as the Hlaing river, is formed by the confluence of the Pegu and Mytmaka rivers, it´s a natural estuary or delta that runs from the city into the gulf of Martaban. It´s also connected to the Irrawady Delta ( sadly famous for the Nargis cyclone, the second.deadliest cyclone in recorded history, almost 85,000 people were killed and 50,000 people were missing). The river dock offers some picturesque views of how is life in the river.
A different experience is a visit to the Port, it brought me back memories of how i imagined that a port in Sotheast Asia would be...Old ships unloading rice or spices carried by porters. The port of Yangon is located on the banks of the Yangon river (about 32 kms inlandfrom the Gulf of Martaban), it´s Myanmar´s premier port, handling almost 90% of the country foreign trade.
