China Town

The Chinatown of Yangon lies west of the Sule Pagoda which is located in the centre of downtown Yangon. Every afternoon, hawkers with garlic fried chili crabs, steamed dim sum and straw baskets full of strawberries set up their shop around the Guanyin temple, bracing themselves for the onrush of evening strollers.The foods that can be found on the streets of Chinatown are the strongest statement of a unique Chinese identity in Myanmar’s largest and most ethnically mixed city.

Sule Pagoda

Sule Pagoda

One of the best way to experience Yangon and how the former Captial is, and how it is changing can be seen all around Sule Pagoda. It is located in the heart of downtown. If you try to “google-image” Yangon, chances are that the picture of Sule Pagoda will occupy 50% of all images. At night it looks very beautiful as it is lit up. The fact that it is in the middle of a roundabout makes it good for photographs.
