The Yangon River, also known as Rangoon River or Hlaing River, is formed by the confluence of the Pegu and Myitmaka rivers and is a marine estuary that runs from Yangon emptying into the Gulf of Martaban on the Andaman Sea. The channel is navigable by ocean-going vessels and thus plays a critical role in the economy of Burma. The Twante Canal connects the Yangon River with the Irrawaddy Delta or Ayeyarwady Delta, once known as 'the rice bowl of Asia'.
