Yangon, Myanmar

I was assigned to Yangon, Myanmar recently for business trip.  I went there with our agent for 4 days to interview workers.  The trip was enjoyable as we also went for a short trip after we finished our interview session.

It is an interesting place to visit as I remind me of the 80s in Malaysia.  We went to Shwedogan Pagoda or Great Dagon Pagoda.

 Then we went to Bogyake Aung San Market on the next day.  I bought some souvenir for family and friends.

Let see the food available in Yangon

The food are not bad also but some of the food are a bit sour like the soup on the top.  They like to eat the food that are barbaquee.
