In this photo taken on June 1, 2012, Myanmar Buddhist monks walk on a road near Yangon Hospital in downtown Yangon, Myanmar. There's nowhere else in Asia like it any more: Yangon's cityscape is filled with colonial buildings and colorful multiethnic communities, bypassed by the rapid modernization that's bulldozed the past elsewhere. Now, as Myanmar opens its long-closed doors to the outside world, including tourists, an effort is under way to preserve Yangon's architecture and atmosphere from development and decay.
