This room is one of three in a pretty flat in the heart of downtown Yangon. Coffee shops, supermarkets, temples, and all kinds of restaurants are all in walking distance.
Jake, your host, is an American immigrant in Burma who will show you the good stuff.
The east side of downtown Yangon is ethnically diverse and socially rewarding. When you arrive, I'll give you a nice little guide to the neighborhood that I wrote and regularly update.
Take a taxi. Negotiate a price before you get in. Jake can give you an idea on how much you should be paying. Or you can use Uber or Grab.
