Burmese Condominium

As you walk along the streets of Myanmar, you will be able to notice a whole bunch of condominium mushrooming everywhere. The place where I stayed (Dagon) – doesn’t really have any luxury condominium. In fact – the most luxurious place that I’ve seen is the hotel that I stayed – which is Park Royal.


The photo above – shows a typical frontage of a condominium along the back streets behind the hotel that I stayed. It looks like those old condominium that came from the 80s. One day I must try to go up and take some photos of it. Not so sure if its safe – but surely I need a local guide to help to do this.

Some of the condominium that I saw are duplexes. I didn’t managed to take a photo of it but it does seem that at some point of time, these condominiums were luxury accommodations.


In my trip back to the airport, I did noticed that new condominiums are being built. And these are the modern ones and I believe that as the country continue to develop, new wealth will continue to spur luxury developments. And the income disparity between the rich and the poor will be wider.
