Dagon Myothit (East)

Also known as East Dagon Township, this neighborhood on the fringe of the city is one of the "new cities" founded by the military government shortly after the 1988 coup. Despite being "new", the area is underdeveloped and lacks basic municipal services. East Dagon is home to lots of people without formal housing, and the area occasionally makes the news after local drug busts.
