if you love the city area, Landmaday, Slue, Kyaktada will be better.

Downtown Yangon, which is around Sule pagoda. The closer to Sule pagoda road the better but ... usually a bit more expensive.

There are quite a lot of galleries in the side streets just to the east of Sule Paya in the Downtown area.

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)
