Although the sun is strong in Myanmar, it is rare to see a man walking around with a parasol. As in Japan, it seems that it is not fashionable for a man to hold a parasol over his head. Interestingly, this trend differs from place to place. In Laos, which is located near Myanmar, male Buddhist monks are seen walking around the town with parasols in their hands. This difference may be a kind of cultural difference.

Men in Myanmar who do not use parasols often wear hats instead. The man standing at the bus stop in the photo was also wearing a hat. In Asia, most hats worn by locals are braided hats like the Vietnamese non-la, but the hat worn by the man was a little different from a non-la. The top of the hat was rounded, not pointed. I don't think I have seen such a shape in other countries.

I am not sure if these hats made of bamboo are unique to Myanmar or not, but in any case, they are brightly colored. The yellow, red, and green hats looked very nice under the strong sunlight.
