Rangoon (at lower centre) lies on the Irrawaddy delta, the most fertile region of Burma. Rivers seen here include the Irrawaddy (lower left), Rangoon (bottom centre) and Sittang (upper right). The Gulf of Martaban, part of the Andaman Sea, is in the south-east. The Pegu Yoma hills are at upper left. Image taken by an American Landsat satellite in January, during the area's dry season.
