Food & Drink
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. See China Town Yangon and all Yangon (Rangoon) has to offer by arranging your trip with our Yangon (Rangoon) vacation builder.

Where to stay in Yangon (Rangoon)

It can be difficult to find decent budget accommodations in Yangon, especially downtown, where rooms are usually small and booked months in advance. Look farther away from the city center for cozier budget options, often with complimentary breakfast included. The Kandawgyi lakeside features a number of high-end establishments.
