How close-knit is the expat community in this area? How do I get involved with it?
Yangon's expats make up a very close-knit community and you will soon get to know everyone. Various embassiesâ€”including the British, American and Australian embassiesâ€”hold social nights once a month. You may wish to contact your embassy for details or call Crown Yangon for upcoming events.
There are also a number of social/business groups set up, including the Tuesday Club and the Forum.
Beside expat groups, what is the best way to make social connections outside of work?
There are many expat clubs such as the British, Australian and American Clubs. There are also social activities such as an expat dart league and 5-a-side football. You may also wish to join the Jonnie Walker Club at the Traders Hotel, which meets once a month.
Where can I meet other singles in this city?
The above places are commonly used for single expats to socialize with other expat singles. There are also a number of bars frequented by expats, including 50th Street and Mr. Guitar (popular among trendy locals).
Special events are also held at the large hotels like Traders, Savoy, etc. Also popular is the Friday night happy hour at the Strand, a great meeting place for expats and a good way to find out where the happening place will be that night!
Are there any unique networking opportunities for accompanying partners?
The UNWA (the United Nations Women’s Association) is a good resource for this.
