Unfortunately, not much has been done to manage the upkeep of footpaths so you will find all sorts of holes, jagged pieces sticking out and especially dangerous storm drains that look as if they are covered but are not!
Be especially careful of the central median strip opposite Sule Pagoda. My brother thought he would get a good photo and stood on a cement slab which lifted and left him with his foot down a gaping hole. It was just lucky he did not break his leg on the first day!!

Make sure you look carefully where you are walking and watch where the locals walk -they usually avoid the storm drain section. Take a torch with you at night as there are few street lights.
