Vibrant market in the morning, quiet street in the afternoon
Crossing Maha Bandoola Road and making your way to the water, you are now entering the Hokkien part of Chinatown. Every street in Yangon is a microcosmos of its own. The quiet atmosphere in 18th street is distinctly different from the pulsating vibe of 19th street.
Morning wet market
18th street’s lower middle block is home to a popular vibrant street market. Best to come in the morning. When the sun breaks through the mist, 18th street is already alive and busy! This is where the Chinatown locals shop for fresh seafood and meat.
Nice to know
When you walk into 18th street, immediately on your right is a stall that reputedly churns out the best chicken sate in town.
