This week: Street markets in Yangon, Myanmar
Yangon, the old capital of Myanmar (formerly Burma), is full of these food markets, selling every type of fruit, vegetable and meat you can think of. Spend the afternoon wandering through the stalls, watching locals go about their daily shop and follow your nose! My favourite snack from here is fresh mango, sliced and sprinkled with salt and chili flakes.
What is ‘Photo of the week’?
Photos are the best, free souvenirs. Each week I’ll post a photograph from some of the most special places I’ve visited on my travels. Leave a comment or share your favourite place below.
