NOTE: This part of a series. Please visit the other parts to see all of the fun things we did in Myanmar and Singapore: PART 1 PART 2 PART 3
During our visit to Yangon, Myanmar - we not only lead project-based workshops at various schools, but we also go to experience the culture and daily life!
We visited various places in Yangon from modern new malls very similar to home to traditional markets just off the local train stop! We also visited the bus cafe and got to take a kickboxing class!
It was a fun (and busy!) time to see all of the sights and get all of our important work done.

Let's go to Yangon!
Myanmar is quite far from our home! It took roughly 20 hours in transit to arrive in Yangon, Myanmar's capital city.
We always make time to visit this amazing monument and religious site. It's over 2600 years old!
Similar to Thailand style Kickboxing, Myanmar claims that they originated the artform
Circle Train and Local Market
The Circle Train is a form of public transportation that takes us on a tour around the outskirts of Yangon and lets us see life away from the modernizing downtown area. We get off the train at a local market and walk through the market to see where an average resident of Yangon would shop for their daily needs.
