Vibrant Street Market East of Shwedagon
Bahan Market, open daily, is a typical Myanmar street market. It sits in the heart of one of Yangon’s liveliest urban corridors. The bustling streets are lined with shops and food vendors. With its close proximity to Shwedagon Pagoda, Bahan Market is famous for its wide selection of religious products. Search through numerous shops selling incense, candles, robes, floral arrangements, shrines and statues. Visit in the early evening when temperatures cool and flower vendors display their finest bouquets. Dusk is also the best time to capture street life photos with Shwedagon's illuminated spier glowing in the background.
