You'll see the longyi's everywhere, the hustle and bustle of Yangon traffic, but also young people dressed as in many other big asian cities. And there are more western things to be had here then probably in the rest of Burma together.
At the moment building this page hasn't the highest priority for me but i'll add things as soon as i can.
in the meantime (or afterwards of course) if you have any questions, just ask.
