[Yangon Tourism] Junction City, an ultra-modern mall and Junction Center, an ultra-local mall


It’s Tagagi here, writing this blog in the midst of the Philippine holidays without going on a trip.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to the Yangon section of Myanmar tourism, featuring shopping malls.

This blog is the only one that introduces shopping malls in tourist information, but I can’t stop visiting malls in Southeast Asia because I can get a glimpse of various aspects of the country.


In this article, I will introduce you to Junction City, a shopping mall in Yangon.


Location and map of Junction City, Yangon

Junction City is located in the heart of Yangon, near downtown, near the Surrey Pagoda, Surrey Square and the Shangri-La Hotel.

It might be easier to say the south front of the Bogyoke Market.

Entering Yangon’s Junction City

Junction City exterior

Junction City is a large urban mall complex, and as far as I know, it consists of a building that also houses the Pan Pacific Hotel and other offices.

From the outside, it clearly hides a line from the atmosphere of Yangon, giving the impression that it is the opposite of the Bogyoke Market.


Bodhi tree on Shwedagon Road

On the other hand, on the sidewalk across Shwedagon Street on the west side, there was an old-fashioned banyan tree and a strange doll dedicated to it.


Entrance to Junction City

Junction City Entrance

At the entrance of Junction City, locals were getting in and out of cabs, meeting up, and enjoying the sudden appearance of this modern spot.


smoking area (corner)

There is also a smoking area next to the entrance. Smoking is becoming more and more prevalent, but compared to other countries, the smoking policy is still quite lax. There is also an ashtray on the Pan Pacific side.


Entrance to Junction City

When I entered the entrance, there was a welcome object. There were a lot of local people taking memorial photos. They are similar to Filipinos in this area.


Go inside Junction City.

Central atrium

Various tenants are jostling for space around the central atrium. In the center of the atrium is a mysterious floating object.


People taking a break.

The area under the floating object is a place for citizens to relax.

FUJI Restaurant

FUJI Restaurant

FUJI Restaurant. This is a Japanese-style restaurant that you can find in Yangon from time to time. I glanced at the menu, and it wasn’t that expensive, so I was thinking of going there, but unfortunately, I couldn’t make it during my visit to Myanmar this time.



Pan Pacific Yangon

パンパシフィックホテルPan Pacific Hotel

The Pan Pacific Hotel Yangon, whose lounge is familiar to those looking for a cafe with power and WIFI in Yangon.

A set of drinks (coffee or tea) and cake (or bread) for 6,500 kyat is just right for breakfast. It was a great luxury to decide on the day’s itinerary while searching on the computer.


Xiaomi Shop

Xiaomi Shop

Xiaomi’s MI store, which is well known in this blog. I didn’t expect to find one in Yangon. I’m not sure if it’s a directly managed store or a distributor, but Xiaomi’s momentum is unbelievable.

Money exchange offices in Junction City

There is also a currency exchange office on the upper floor of Junction City. I could not exchange money from Japanese Yen or Peso at this time.


Junction City and Junction Center are easily mistaken by tourists.

junction center

Now that the Junction City guide is out of the way, let’s talk about the junction story that I misunderstood.

As I was wandering around Yangon City, I looked up and saw a mall called Junction Center (Janction Mawtin on the map). At that time, I was new to Yangon and thought that Junction City and Junction Center were the same thing.


Atrium in the Junction Center

The inside of the junction center was just an ordinary local shopping mall, although there was a stairwell. I had no idea what to expect from the capital city of Myanmar, and I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I visited Yangon.


Ramen Monster

Ramen Monster, a ramen shop in the Junction Center. I wasn’t hungry at the time, so I didn’t go through. A man who looked Japanese was slurping his ramen.

There are many junctions in Yangon, such as Junction City, Junction Center, and Junction Square, so I’d like to make sure I get the most out of them.
