Modern-Yanmar Shopping Mall - Review of Junction Square, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar
When you' re sick of seeing the pagoda after the pagoda and probably caught in ancient Myanmar, this place might be the place to see what it's like to be modern Myanmar.

One could say this shopping center is the modern shopping center and one of the best in it.
