The 20th floor of the Sakura Tower hosts the best view of the city of Yangon. From opposite vantage points, you can see the the Swedagon pagoda in the distance and the Sule pagoda in the foreground. The Irrawaddy river is at the southern edge of town, noticeable by the line of cranes. From this height, you also get a good perspective on a number of new high-rise structures rising from the floor of Colonial Era buildings. The other skyscraper in view is Traders Hotel, and if you look down the road at its base you can make out the dome of the Bogyoke market.
