Bamboo Hat In Bus Stop

Man wearing vivid hat

The man wearing a vivid hat stood at the bus stop

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

Although the sun is strong, it is not common to see men walking with a sunshade in Myanmar. The situation is the same in Japan. Interestingly, it was common to see Buddhist monks walking with a sunshade in Laos. The difference like this might be also one of the cultural differences. The Burmese men often wore a hat instead of putting a sunshade up.

The man in this photo, who stood in the bus stop, also wore a hat. The Asian conical hat was the major item in Southeast Asian countries. Yet what he wore was not that. Its top was not sharp. I thought the kind of hat was not seen in other Asian countries. Anyway, it was vivid and painted in yellow, red, and green. The colors looked really sharp under the strong sun.
