The name "Yangon" (ရန္ကုန္) is derived from the combination of the Burmese words yan (ရန္) and koun (ကုန္), which mean "enemies" and "run out of", respectively. This word combination is commonly translated as "End of Strife".

The city's colonial era name, "Rangoon", likely is derived from the Anglicization of the Arakanese pronunciation of "Yangon" which is [rɔ̀ɴɡʊ́ɴ].

Heading to Local Tea Shop for a chance to taste Myanmar sweet tea is the highlight combined with local foods this to me is the most do local food experience while in Yangon.Then Continue to Kandawgyi Park and lake,150 acres (0.1% the size of Lake Geneva) and it’s a 5-mile walk around. The lake is big and beautiful, though small enough to walk around and enjoy from every angle. You’ll find various parks around the lake’s edges, with boardwalks around and across, and could make a visit last as long as you like.

Continue visit the famous Shwedagon Pagoda (its golden stupa is the 'heart ' of Myanmar over 2,500 years old). Enjoy sunset at Pagoda.
