Thadingyut, also known as the festival of lights, is a celebration welcoming the Buddha’s decent from heaven. People celebrate by lighting lanterns and candles, and going to pagodas and monasteries to pay respect to monks.

This year, the festival is held on October 28th, on the full moon day of the Burmese Lunar month of Thadingyut. The festival lasts for three days, where tonnes of stalls pop up on the streets. Make sure you head downtown with an empty stomach, as there will be a lot delicious street food! Keep your eyes our for our favourite, Kout Nyin Kyi Taut, which is sweet sticky rice in a bamboo tube. Children often push around a toy “mee tun car" with a glowing candle inside.

Don’t miss out on taking a ride on the man powered ferris wheels, definitely a unique Myanmar festival experience not to miss!
