Chinatown, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma)

By on March 29, 2015 in Myanmar/Burma

I had heard that Chinatown in Yangon (Rangoon) was worth a look so I decided to pop along and see what was happening, and I was not disappointed as I found a thriving market and street scene.

They had some spectacular, and very smelly, Durian Fruits on sale. These were big! Much bigger than I am used to seeing in Malaysia.

In fact you can buy pretty much anything in this market… (Joke), but I did like the way this toddler was sitting in a tray usually used for displaying vegetables or fruit on sale.

And under one underpass I saw this kettles being boiled. I really liked the intensity and colours of the fires.
