Burma Nightlife

  • Night life in Yangon

    Hello, Nightlife in Yangon is not so flourishing as in Thailand but some developments can be noticed here. For example, club 369 is one of the best and safest place to enjoy dancing (most young people, every Fridays there are thematique shows - latina, MTV drag queens, Song contests, machos, etc. with special DJ, even from Singapore) and possible...

  • Right :) Back at...

    Right :)Back at Sangklaburi I met with the Dr of Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) . I learned from him about the concentration of refugee camps around the area. The Thai Government doesn’t encourage visits to the camps and some are off-limits to foreigners. The Guesthouse owners will know where you can go. If you can they will...

  • Live Music in Yangon

    If you're in Yangon and it's live music you want, this is your place. It has a pleasant, laid back atmosphere. There is a stage with a live band, and tables where you can have a full meal while watching the show. Of course you can enjoy the music with a drink here as well. The people here, westerners and Burmese alike, all dress in wester style...

  • Karaoke(yes that's right)

    I was walking to dinner one night when I heard some music coming from a house beside the street. I stopped to have a look and saw that a large family was enjoying karaoke. They noticed me watching and invited me in. I sat down and watched each of them have a go at a song. Of course I was asked to sing a song, but they were all in Burmese and they...

  • Puppet show

    When staying in Nyaung Shwe (Inle Lake) you will not find a swinging nightlife. Not to worry, this highly entertaining puppet show is perfect for an after dinner activity. Aung is a skilled puppeteer and puts on quite an amusing show. There is also a puppet shop here if you want to buy a unique souvenir or gift. Aung will teach you how to work your...

  • The secret of cheap beer

    I'm not a much of a beer drinker, but a glass of good beer on a hot Burmese night is not to be sneezed at.The problem is that beer is comparatively expensive in Burma. Most places only serve bottles, which cost anything between 900 and 1500 kyat (the price of four curries).The secret is to find one of the rare bars that serve draught beer. At this...

  • Mandalay

    During my trips I did not go out very often after dinner to attend a show, just the "Must see".The Moustache Brothers Show is one of the "Must see" in Myanmar.I put the pictures of this show in the "Local customs tips" since the "A-nyeint pwe" is a type of spectacle special from Burmese culture.Ticket kyats 2.000 Absolutely not.

  • Night market.

    There are not much nightlife like in other Western countries, to talk about in Myanmar. Perhaps a visit to the night market. It's quite interesting to see the types of things that they sell. You can also taste some "mohinga" at the night market. Another common type of food in the night market is pig's trotters. Fruits can also be bought from the...

  • Cultural Show

    The cultural show is included in the price, and is good in that each act is long enough to be interesting and short enough to not get boring. Some of the dances are very similar to the ones we've seen in Thailand, with the ogres and fancy clothes. There is also a puppet show, and the unusual aspect of this is that you can actually see the...

  • Night 'constellations'

    The only reason why I would recommend this is because it would save cheapskates like me a night's stay at a hotel! ahhahaahaha Sometimes they have an onboard movie for you. So far I've seen a Myanma, Indian & Steven Seagal one plus Con Air! Sometimes you get to see the back of Myanmese heads as well, and ears & the interesting ways the ladies knot...

  • Coffee anyone?

    The street stalls & their night stalls. You literally get to sit with the locals at tables & chairs so small that it brought back memories of my kiddie study desk set!The music is loud at certain spots. ROCK (yea baby) is the hottest thing here. Joe (a local) told me that this band, IRON CROSS , is the biggest Burmese rock band around. Have you...

  • Sunset stroll through poppy fields

    Not much to speak of in Tachilek, Burma....but if you travel to Mae Sai, Thailand just across the border you'll find plenty to keep you occupied. Its not Bangkok but its the same kind of crap on a smaller scale. Naked...but wear your shoes.

  • Star Gazing

    probably one of the best places in indochina to watch stars....the air (outside downtown yangon) is so clear from smog....you can see all the dippers you have only seen in magazines.at least that my experience.forget about clubbing....you didn't come all the way here to do that...try IBIZA islands instead. anything you like...would suggest...

  • Granted, I am not a nightlife...

    Granted, I am not a nightlife person, but Myanmar is not the sort of place to look for it! But hands-down, the most common evening activity, no matter where you go, is karaoke! I almost said karaoke bars, but they are not usually bars, and there is scarcely any alcohol consumption at all in Myanmar anyway. Karaoke clubs (for lack of a better word)...

  • In every town there is usually...

    In every town there is usually a cinema. In Hsipaw I got to see my first Indian movie. It was every bit the experience that I had expected: adventure, love, and lots of singing and dancing.The cheap seats (30 kyat, 10 cents) are in the front, and the hard board bottoms can be an ordeal for a 3-hour movie. For 50 kyat (15 cents) you can sit in the...

  • Burmese UFOs

    One of old Cliffie's most persistent memories of Burma is of the UFOs. No, Spielberg wasn't in town for some location shots for a sequel to 'Close Encounters'. It was the Unidentified Floating Objects that kept appearing with depressing regularity in the Mandalay Beer. Remember, too, that Burmese beer in the good old days tended to be served at...

    'cos I live in Yangon, I spend most of my nightlifeshopping in China-town, located close to my house.There're many small shops, I like the feeling of sitting by a tea-shop and have a chat with friends.
