Chinatown

Yangon’s Chinatown is perhaps best known as a Fun Place for a Cheap Meal, but the streets are also home to colourful temples, clan houses and many hidden treasures that the Chinese immigrants brought with them. It also is also one of the few places in downtown where you can access Yangon’s breezy riverfront promenade. Crafted with care, this walking route guides you to the quieter and charming alleys of bustling Chinatown.
