38th Street

A fantastic morning wet market at one end; grand colonial architecture at the other; and two Shia mosques in the middle.

Other things that caught our eye:
*1 Mya Min Maw watch shop -at 377, Mahabandoola Street and the best place in Yangon to get an analogue watch cleaned or repaired. 
See https://www.mmtimes.com/news/standing-test-time.html and we vouch for him too.
*2 Punja Mosque, built in 1877, one of the few Shia mosques in Yangon.
*3 An educational toy store (no. 97), selling a large selection of educational games, books and wooden toys for children of all ages.
*4 A lovely old building from 1902, round the corner on Merchant Street – for A. Scott & Co.
*6 An arts and crafts and souvenir shop (no. 104) that also runs workshops.
*7 Buy your Myanmar National Airline tickets in style, in what was the former Bombay Burma Trading Company headquarters, recently awarded a Blue Plaque thanks to Yangon Heritage Trust (http://www.yangonheritagetrust.org).
*8 The grand Strand Hotel, a Blue Plaque building, currently closed (May 2022) but we live in hope.
