Staying in Yangon || 仰光住宿好介绍




To be honest, I had zero knowledge of Yangon / Myanmar besides the famous pagodas and Aung San Suu Kyi.

It was a rather impromptu decision to make a weekend trip to Yangon, for a taste of the Burmese culture. Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset初到缅甸,我爱上了饭店里这道Shan Noodles Salad。虽然我不知道它是否道地,但是对于缅甸饮食非常陌生的我,它真的挺美味的。

Do remember to get your visa done. If you are traveling direct from Singapore, you can fly via Singapore Airlines, Silkair or Tigerair. I had a discount via Tigerair, so I spent $193.60 on the return air tickets.

It’s convenient to change your currency into kyats, upon arrival at the Yangon Airport. Alternatively, bring some extra USD.

East Hotel was recommended by a friend who was in & out of Yangon quite a few times last year. It’s reasonably priced, conveniently located and the rooms and breakfast are both decent ($61.65 per person per night, inclusive of breakfast).

先把签证办好 (新加坡的朋友,请点击这里for tips),再找找机票。

如果你从新加坡出发,可以选择廉价航空。我以$193.60新币购买虎航来回机票,和友人一起入住East Hotel两晚,一人只需$123.30。抵达机场后,身上换了大约150新币的kyats,去仰光玩一玩!

朋友推荐East Hotel, 价钱合理,出入方便。joojourneys_myanmar_yangon_east_hotel






The room’s pretty spacious for two, and the most valuable service we found was the massage service at the basement of the hotel, which opens till around 11pm. Massage for 2 hours cost approx 10USD, which we looked forward to come back to, after a day of exploration in Yangon. joojourneys_myanmar_yangon_eateries


The hotel staff were pretty friendly and accommodating. Hotel guests can choose from a list of items from the breakfast menu, which included Western and Burmese variations. I chose the Shan Noodles Salad, which resembled our local Mee Pok. It was delightful, but I wasn’t so sure if it was truly a local dish after I did some research online.

除了有西式早餐,饭店也提供缅甸美食。我点了Shan Noodles Salad,这有点类似炒面的缅甸面食,感觉有点象新加坡的Mee Pok,但是面的味道比较淡。上网查了查,饭店里的这道和传统的有些不同,可能是为了迎合游客的口味,所以稍微调过。joojourneys_myanmar_yangon_east_hotel_shan_noodles


又咸又甜。我的饮食习惯比较random。以下是炸蔬菜与一小片淋上了maple syrup的crepe。joojourneys_myanmar_yangon_east_hotel_fried_vege


没有Shan Noodles的第二天,我点了炒米粉,加上水波蛋。好好吃~~

On the second day, there wasn’t Shan Noodles, so I ordered a simple fried Bee Hoon with a poached egg. You can’t go wrong with this combination. joojourneys_myanmar_yangon_east_hotel_breakfast_day2



If you crave for a latte, it’s a top up of 3USD. Otherwise, normal coffee and tea are served with the breakfast. joojourneys_myanmar_yangon_east_hotel_breakfast_latte



I’ve been pretty sluggish, traveling more than I’ve been writing recently. More on the Burmese street food in the upcoming posts. Stay tuned.
