China Town Yangon, Yangon (Rangoon)

Head to the bustling China Town Yangon, a vibrant street brimming with local delicacies. Follow the crowds along this slightly chaotic street and you’ll enjoy a glimpse of everyday life as you watch locals buying ripe fruit in bulk and going about their business. First created in the 1850s when the British expanded the city, today the market abounds with take-away stalls, offering simple plastic chairs and tables for seating. Although famed for its Myanmar Chinese barbecue, you’ll find a huge variety of weird and wonderful food on offer. Grab a beer, find a seat, and take in all of the sights and smells that surround you. If you buy fruit at the market, wash it before consumption. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to China Town Yangon by using our Yangon (Rangoon) trip itinerary planner .

  • If you're expecting this to be like other chinatowns, you're going to be disappointed. We came here for street food at night but we were pretty let down as the whole area is pretty dirty, has weird st...  more »
  • Amazing and vibrant. Let you carry and walk the streets, drink and perhaps dare to eat also. Culture shock is not suitable for bitter or obsessive cleaning. Pure Asia.

  • Chinatown in Yangon is located in the city center, since the time we went is during the Thingyan Festival, we only decided to take a grab there after the water splashing has stopped after 6pm. When we...  more »

  • The hotel is in a good location downtown, easy to reach. The single room I took had an adequate size, comfortable bed, the standard amenities, and it was clean, except certain aspects of the bathroom, like under the sink, a dusty window to the street (!), and the shower had visible points or rust and calc. The breakfast was rather disappointing, quite a small range of choices and the juice and coffee tasted quite artificial.. For the money I paid, I would say it was a satisfactory value for money, but for a 3-star I would expect more.
  • Good location, it is just around 500 meters walk from China town. Room size is big however the sheets does not smell good. Low water pressure on the shower and sink is slow to drain water. Also, water has a salty taste. The staff have good manners and very helpful. Breakfast is a little bit not okay. There is an egg station but without eggs, there is coffee dispensing machine but no sugar. There is no cable tv, only local channels are available. However, the internet wifi is fast enough. There is also an ATM machine just outside the lobby.
  • Whole sale market for glass ware and prociline at the heart of down town.
  • Good taste
