Yangon is Myanmar’s commercial capital and largest city with a population of 7.2 million. Since the opening up of tourism in the country, Myanmar has continued to witness an increase in foreign tourist arrivals, in particular attracting those interested in eco-tourism or the country’s many historical temples. With its religious and ancient sites, natural trails and picturesque beaches, Yangon welcomed 1.1 million tourists in 2014.

Hanoi

Hanoi, the Vietnamese capital, is located in the Northern region of Vietnam, and as second largest city in the country, has a population of 7 million. Hanoi’s economy has grown from strength to strength since the 1990’s, and this is evident by the number of industrial parks and clusters across the city.
