How To Get a Free Walking Tour of Yangon

When you visit Myanmar, you will have to stop by at Yangon which is the biggest city of the country. There might be not much to see and do in Yangon (some people think so), but just walking around the city can give you a glimpse of Myanmar's colonial past. The downtown area is a vibrant combination of colonial buildings and different cultures.
