After decades of being stifled by the heavy hand of a dictatorial regime, Yangon’s museums, art galleries and markets are now being allowed to grow independently –
fulfilling the enormous potential that Myanmar’s people and culture offer.
Markets are known in Burmese as zay or zei, and Yangon has a huge
number of them, selling a wide variety of goods. Food, medicine, clothes, textiles, jewelry, silverware, lacquerware, handicrafts… Yangon has it all.
