Saw there are cafes and art galleries in photos of yangon. May i know where is a good place to stay?
if you love the city area, Landmaday, Slue, Kyaktada will be better.
There are quite a lot of galleries in the side streets just to the east of Sule Paya in the Downtown area.
The "other" forum appears to be quietly fading away...
Sanchaung area - KyunTaw street, Shan Kone street, Sanchaung steet, many new bars and eats - closeby Penthouse, Atlas rooftop (live jazz) ... best nightlife, locals & expats, few tourists ... Many bars and restaurants, few galleries/shops, for galleries rather downtown btw. 33rd and 39th. Yankin a distant 2nd, but good new bars at Myanmar Plaza as Eclipse - same area (short taxi ride) clubs/bars as Fuse, Vibe, Brave bar, Seeds (not a club, but best sunset over Inya lake), Pyrite, after8 .... Base in Sanchaung, Yankin club area is only 15 minutes taxi ride away (cheap)Edited: 08 June 2018, 23:48
downtown: new hotspot area btw40th and 50th street, many cool places as Father's offfice, Yama rooftop, 7th joint reagge bar, pirate bar, Beat bar, Jazz in time, Cuba bar, AJ's burger, Rosie's sports bar. 50th street bar, many beer stations and local pubs, nightmarket (excellent food!!) on 52nd street, as well as 'urban village' market on 48th .... Also around 19th street /Chinatown several good bars - last, night market along Strand road, around 5km long, 100s of food stalls selling pretty much everything, alive giant maggots are kinda special - enjoy Yangon
