Yangon was our first stop on our whirlwind six-day trip through Myanmar. We only had a a day and a bit, but we managed to get around the main sights in the city. Highlights include the boardwalk around Kandawgyi Lake and pre-dawn at the mammoth Shwedagon Pagoda, but nothing compared with the turtle pond at Botatoung Pagoda. Scroll down to see some cute, sunbaking half-shells.

Next stop, Bagan…
