Wet Market on 26th Street (Yangon)

There are few wet markets in Yangon. The small but busy morning market at 26th Street is within walking distance from Bogyoke Aung San Market.

The best time to visit this street market is 7 to 9am.

The market could be covered within 30 minutes but it has lots of local produces.

Not everyone like to step into the wet market because of the wet floor and smelly marketplace.

Personally, I think the wet market is the best place to learn what the locals eat and see the ingredients in their pre-cook forms.

Marketplace is colourful, with bustling sights and sounds.

Some vendors may not like their picture to be taken, so it is courtesy to ask for permission.

I prefers to use a wide lens to take pictures at marketplace due to the tight space.

You could see few adventurous traveller in the market, but it was less than a handful.

Most tourists would rather visit Bogyoke market to buy souvenir instead of getting their feet dirty.

In the afternoon, you could see the vendors are more relaxing after the peak hours.

It would say that the market at 26th street is more interesting than Bogyoke market.
