People of Yangon – Photo Blog

Yangon.  To some tourists it seems like just another port city that AirAsia flies into/out of.  There’s not much to mark off your travel checklist in Yangon besides the Shwedagon and Sule pagodas.  However, personally I loved Yangon, as there was great & easy-to-find street food, along with awesome photo opportunities.

People were also super friendly and nice when it came to having their picture taken – not a single person told me no, and some of the lovely Burmese even smiled for the camera.  So here are some of my favorite shots that I got of people around Yangon.
