Bago - old Pegu (29 Dec 08)

The city of Bago is just an hour north of Yangon.  This was once the old Mon city of Pegu, capital of a powerful empire that once ruled southern Myanmar and a major international trading port.  Today, it is the capital of a division and a busy commercial city.
Singaporeans probably remember the old Pegu Road Dental Clinic off Balestier Road.
