Yangon Nightlife - Best Things to Do at Night in Yangon

Light up your night in the capital city of Myanmar - Yangon by thousands of night life's activities to participate. We are here to suggest travelers some places you might want to drop by to spend worthy nights in Yangon.

It appears to most people that at day light is when all activities bustling occur, natives and foreigners alike are all gathering in the city hot spots. When sunset, quiet would take the role, people turn back home to rest. But in Yangon - the busiest city of Myanmar, things won’t happen like that. Night is when a lot kind of fun things about to start. Let's find out with Myanmar Airfares.

1.Night Sightseeing at Shwedagon Pagoda

Before joining the later exciting atmosphere, why don’t you just stop by for a little peace to “warm up” first. Shwedagon is considered as Yangon symbol in particular and Myanmar in general. In daylight, you can observe many religious rituals they do there, souvenirs Burmese sell and free to take bunch of photos in the Backside, main temple, Budhi tree, tens of smaller temple in its yard and meet hundreds of skillfully sculpture Buddha statues.

What worth saying that the Pagoda had built with precious material like gold, rubies, diamonds, etc. so when the darkness comes, it automatically shines up with the particular gold twinkle color. In my point of view, the night just enhances the Pagoda beauty much more than daylight, which provides lovely opportunities for astounding images in the journey.

Ticket for entering: 8,000 MMK (about $5USD. Check the exhange rate again at: https://www.xe.com/ )

Opening time: from 4am to 10pm. Perfect time to visit the Pagoda is at 4pm, then spend time there till 7pm. In this way, you can both contemplate its magnificent at daylight and its transformation when night time. Furthermore, 6pm is the time for night street food bar and pub. 

2. Enjoying Diverse Delicious Dishes

Best place to enjoy the food is at the downtown, where traditional, foreign and modern cuisines stay together. Right there in the street food, you can catch the image of dishes from hawkers, vendors, stalls, plain Burmese food stores and restaurants. Price is variety and suit for the three class but most of them are rather cheap, specially vendors, hawkers and local food store dishes.

Some popular streets in Yangon at night you should go to are: 19th Street and other places in Chinatown, Shwe Bon Thar and its surrounds of Indian street.

19th Street in Chinatown is a not - to - be - missed place when the night comes in Yangon. Known as a really popular place to hang out at night and enjoy delicious street food of both foreigners and locals, 19th street gives you a chance to taste some exotic Burmese dishes as well as soak up the local life.
