Yangon | Day Trip on a Budget

If you’re planning to go on a trip to Myanmar, you’ll most likely be entering the country through Yangon. You can actually visit most of Yangon’s attractions in 1 day. Earlier, I did just that. The good thing about it is, it’s actually cheap! Just get your shoes(or in my case, slippers) on and just […]

This is what I realized as I’m writing this in the lobby of my hostel on 20th street in downtown Yangon, a block away from the infamous Chinatown and 19th street, Yangon’s equivalent to maybe Pub Street of Siem Reap or Khaosan Road of Bangkok…but not quite.
