After the storm, Yangon’s become lively again with weekend events and activities. Find what tingles your interest.

New things we have noted

On 19 May The Italian Embassy in collaboration with Doh Eain will open the “Piazze Invisibili” Photography Exhibition on the ground floor of the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) Building. The collection of photographs reflects on Italy’s famous piazze or squares and how empty they were during the COVID pandemic. The exhibition will be mirrored with images from public spaces during COVID in Myanmar by local photographers. The exhibition will be open to the public every day from 20 to 28 May.
