White Elephants, Yangon (Rangoon)

1.0
#4 of 6 in Wildlife in Yangon (Rangoon)
Wildlife Area Nature / Park
White Elephants displays the animals that, throughout history and in numerous Burmese legends, were important and believed to bring good luck to those who owned them. Interestingly, the elephants are not actually white, but are in fact pinkish in color, due to their very rare condition of albinism. Here you'll see three of the elephants sadly chained to a pole, only occasionally taken outside to take part in traditional ceremonies.

Where to stay in Yangon (Rangoon)

It can be difficult to find decent budget accommodations in Yangon, especially downtown, where rooms are usually small and booked months in advance. Look farther away from the city center for cozier budget options, often with complimentary breakfast included. The Kandawgyi lakeside features a number of high-end establishments.
