Red & gold | Lunar new year in Yangon

180218-189-edited

Although Myanmar celebrates its new year in April, there was still plenty going on to mark the lunar, or Chinese, new year in Yangon last month. Lanterns were strung across the streets in the Chinatown district and the city’s sizeable Chinese community visited local pagodas to pray and burn incense. There was also a replica Great Wall of China (not to scale) in one of the side streets.

    The first and second photos, showing the buildings, really interest me – all those beautiful windows, and the air conditioners. 🙂 What a place of fantastic contrasts, like the lanterns and cars, beautifully done.
