Yangon is very very green. Coconut trees and palm trees can be found in any corners of the city. No wonder why Yangon was known as “the garden city of the East”.
Myanmar women wear sarongs in daily activities. The sarongs make them walk so gracefully!
You gotta see the majestic Shwedagon in sunrise, sunset, daylight and at night too! Each time of a day, it casts a different beauty in your eyes.
The colonial area with many well-preserved old buildings. My imagination had a good time wandering and wondering about things that have happened here. This day one hundred years ago… Who have stepped on that staircase? Who have had an afternoon high tea in the Strand hotel?
The energetic water stages in Thingyan Festival. People shoot each other with water pipes and big smiles.
Sugar cane juice is kind of traditional drink.
Myanmar food, mostly rice, noodles and grilled meat. The taste of the food represents the spirit of the people – light and tender. (Shan noodles and my favorite sugarcane juice after 2 hours playing and dancing under water of Thingyan Festival.)
The Amazing China Town Yangon offers so many kinds of street food. Here I watched a lady (owner of some street vendor) dancing along many Myanmar traditional songs. Such a carefree yet charming spirit!
