Treat yourself to the northern Shan-styled hot pot, take part in a heritage event online, or check out a gadget expo this weekend.

New things we have noted

Doh Eain and partner organisations have launched Yangon Heritage Days, inspired by the European Heritage Days, which is a renowned cultural event celebrated across Europe, highlighting the local history, architecture, and culture. Heritage enthusiasts will be able to participate in this event by sharing stories about heritage buildings, generational family businesses, food stalls or restaurants, as well as other endangered traditions and rituals. You can participate by commenting on event posts or publishing your own posts using the hashtag #yangonheritagestories on Facebook.
