Many people call it expat area. We may have to argue. It is more of a blend of both local and international crowd. The crowd is so huge that it attracts a lot of restaurateurs to start their ventures in this area with the hope to cash on the diversity of the neighborhood. Some may be successful; others may have to close down. Yet, replacements are on the way.
During the past several months, we have seen new ones sprung up almost every corner which inspires us to come up with updated guide to YAWMINGYI/NAWADAY neighborhood.
