Ref: Formerly, Rangoon.
the capital and largest city of Myanmar; located in the south near the Irrawaddy river delta
The largest city and former capital of Myanmar (Burma). Formerly known as Rangoon. The administrative capital has been moved to Naypyidaw or Nay Pyi Taw.
Yangon is a former capital of Burma and the capital of Yangon Region. Although the military government has officially relocated the capital to Naypyidaw since March 2006, Yangon, with a population of over four million, continues to be the country's largest city and the most important commercial centre. Although Yangon's infrastructure is undeveloped compared to those of other major cities in Southeast Asia, it has the largest number of colonial buildings in the region today. While many high-rise residential and commercial buildings have been constructed or renovated throughout downtown and Greater Yangon in the past two decades, most satellite towns that ring the city continue to be deeply impoverished.
