Pazundaung Township

KST 5600

Located on the southeastern part of Yangon, Pazundaung Township was the eastern most part of the original city plan laid out the British. Somewhat tucked away and forgotten Pazundaung, is the main route between Downtown and Mingalar Taung Nyunt and Dawbon Townships and as such is often passed by. It does however, hold a few little gems and if you are looking for the convenience of downtown without so much of the bustle it is the perfect spot. The Yangon City Development Committee has designated a few choice buildings as landmarks and there are the focal shopping hubs of Pazundaung Market and Yea Kyaw Market. So if you want to experience a section of Yangon that will seem familiar yet unexplored step out and experience Pazundaung.


Maung Aye CafĂŠ

Maung Aye Cafe is famous for its Tea and small Samosas. As well as a small bakery in the evenings the street outside turns into a BBQ restaurant, that has some traditional footstalls attached. The CafĂŠ is so popular it is that it is well-known across the city and even though it very seldom gets foreign clientele, is well worth a visit.
