A street full of mosques, temples, and dhamma halls, with colourful colonial architecture and a Doh Eain renovated alleyway (www.doheain.com). It’s also the place for flip-flops, fairy lights, and goldsmith’s tools – and it doesn’t get much more eclectic than that.
Other things that caught our eye:
*1 Colourful street barbers.
*2 A branch of the largest gold jewellery chain in Myanmar, Aung Thamardi, where you can also buy pure 24 carat gold by the gram – a 166g bar is available, if you are feeling wealthy.
*3 The Bombay Burma Press Building – a photogenic turquoise building, sadly slated for demolition.
