The tobacconist sold cigarettes and kun in the street market

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

Along with shoppers, some hawkers also walked around the street market. The young man in this photo was one of them. He wore a cap and hung a big tray from his neck. He was a tobacconist. On his tray, boxes of cigarettes were seen. Besides, some betel leaves were also seen. He peddled not only cigarettes but also Kun which was equivalent of Paan in India. Kun is very popular in Myanmar.

I saw many Kun vendors in the streets. In addition, I saw also many Kun peddlers in the places crowded with people. I found a huge demand for it here. Seemingly, the tobacconist was one thing and Kun vendor was another. Kun vendor usually didn't sell cigarettes. Yet the Kun peddler was exceptional. Most of the Kun peddlers carried boxes of cigarettes along with betel leaves. The Kun peddlers also wanted to meet a client's need for cigarettes.
