There are no really "must see" places around the road. On one side there is typical riverside architecture (but not a promenade). On the opposite side there is a river-port (behind the fence) and local foods kiosks. But is is a good base to start...More

Not worth your time. Although there are a few architecturally interesting buildings nearby there is no real reason to endure the sun or traffic by strolling down Strand Road. Get a cab, see the surrounding highlights and move on.

While visiting Yangon, it was suggested that I visit the Strand Road for a look into the colonial era of Burma. The Strand is a long 10 km road that runs next to the Yangon River and is full of British colonial style buildings. Very...More

A beautiful road, but remember they drive on the opposite side ( right) to the British. And don’t think , as a pedestrian , the transport will stop for you. No way . The park, Immanuel Baptist Church nearby, and City Hall all neighbouring distance.
