This house once contained a machine that was used by women to weave the iconic dresses known as longyi. Despite its humble demeanour, this house is as luxurious any hotel Yangon has to offer such as the Chatrium Hotel Royal Lake Yangon.

Bamar House

This is a vintage example of a rich man’s house since it comes complete with an altar room and a treasure room. The people of that time stored all their jewellery in a special room such as this.

Kachin House

The Kachin house holds the number six in very high regard since there are six sacred pillars behind the house, and six rooms within. Each room bears a specific purpose.

Kayin House

The most fascinating feature of a Kayin house is the massive bronze frog drum that is featured outside the house. It is considered the national symbol for the Kayin race.
