Yangon: Palm Reading/Numerology

16.774759, 96.158803

Numerology and palmistry is huge in Myanmar, where locals consult their local palm reader or numerologist before every major decision (it is even rumored that the government moved the capital from Yagon to Nay Pyi Taw due to the recommendation of one of the general’s palmists). In Yangon, any hotel can arrange for a professional to come for an appointment but more fun is to visit one of the small rooms clustered around the entrance of the Sule Pagoda. Go with a fortune-craving partner, as one of you needs to take notes for the other while predictions are being made. Come prepared with your birthday, including the exact time you were born and what day of the month, as well as with a few specific questions you would like answered. The rates range from 5000 kyat (about $5) to $35.
