Secretariat & beyond

The Secretariat is perhaps Yangon’s most prestigious building; once the bustling centre of the colonial administration it is now eerily quiet. Similarly, the neighbourhood around The Secretariat is relatively untouched by change. Exploring this area is like walking in a sepia-tinted photograph and it’s not difficult to imagine the Yangon of the old days: rickshaws pedalling by, doves flying away, gentlemen smoking cheroots, and boys playing footvolley.
