Yangon also is known as "Rangoon" is a former capital of Myanmar and the commercial capital of Myanmar. It located at lower Myanmar at the convergence of the Yangon and Bago Rivers. The sprawling city was first fortified by King Alanpaya in 1755 that marked his conquest of Lower Myanmar by changing its name from Dagon to Yangon. The British established Yangon as their capital in 1852 after they won control of Lower Myanmar. Yangon was built by many beautiful colonial buildings, wide tree-lined streets, and tranquil lanes with the colonial style. Yangon city set up on 231.2 sq mi (598.75 km2) and has a population in 2010 approximately 4,348,000.

Bagan is the main tourist attraction in Myanmar and one of the richest Archaeological sites in Asia. The ruins of Bagan city cover an area of 42 sq. km embracing over 2000 ancient pagodas and temples of the 11th-13th century The enchanting city is located in the tropical zone of the country, on the eastern bank of the Irrawaddy River about 193 kilometers southeast of Mandalay. Bagan was the seat of power of the First Empire of Myanmar, founded by King Anawrahta, which extended to the border of present-day Cambodia. Bagan shows Myanmar architectural heritages. The majestic temples and golden pagodas are symbols of the time when Theravada Buddhism first flourished in the country, The ruins of the more than one hundred Angkor temples stand alone and isolated in thick jungles, and only from the top of the tallest temples, it is not possible to see others in the distance. Some scholars think that the temples were made of bricks baked in kilns fired by wood from trees felled around Bagan, which transformed the once lush area to arid land. However, early records described Bagan as already being a hot, dry area Sprawling across a vast dusty plain, the ruins of Bagan are unhidden. There being no trees to obstruct the view, one may gaze over forty square miles of countryside, upon literally thousands of temples.

Mrauk U, which Means "North Far" May seem to be a Sleepy Village today But Not so Long Ago It Was the Capital of the Arakan Empire where Portuguese, Dutch and French Traders Rubbed Shoulders with the literati of Bengal and Mughal Princes on the Run. Mrauk U was Declared Capital of the Arakanese kingdom in 1431. At its Peak, Mrauk U Controlled half of Bangladesh, Modern day Rakhine State (Arakan), and the Western Part of Lower Burma. As the City Grew, Many Pagodas and Temples Were Built. Several of Them Remain, and These are The Main Attraction of Mrauk-U. Mrauk U (pronounced ‘mraw-oo’) is different in just about every way. The temples – previously mistaken for forts due to thick bunker-style walls built against the fierce Rakhine winds – are smaller and younger, and unlike Bagan’s, are predominately made from stone, not brick. Also unlike Bagan, Mrauk U's temples are dispersed throughout a still-inhabited and fecund backdrop of busy villages, rice fields and rounded hillocks.
