Coconuts Yangon News

You want news? We got news, piping hot off the press and all that jazz! Here at Coconuts Yangon, it’s our job to cover everything from grisly machete murders (you’d be surprised how many people in Myanmar own machetes) to heartwarming viral Facebook videos to the latest political drama unravelling live in Naypyidaw. If it pertains to Myanmar on the whole — yes, we do venture outside of Yangon — and falls under business, politics, religion, health, animals, crime, technology, or literally any other category that the news can be about, then we’re on it faster than you can say own thee. And we do all this on a (mostly) daily basis, five days a week, four weeks a month, 12 months a year, etc etc. Like our readers, we’re sharp, funny (or so we’ve been told), and are as interested in viral animal photos as we are in the Yangon City Development’s latest master plans for our city. Although we try to cover everything that’s happening, Yangon is kind of a big city, and Myanmar is definitely a big country, so unfortunately we physically cannot write about everything that’s happening everywhere at all moments in time (although that would be a real nerdy superpower to have). So if you find yourself with a funny/interesting/breaking news tip/dog gif you’d like to send our way, feel free to get in touch through our email, or via our Facebook page — we go by ‘Coconuts Yangon’ on there too (although you obviously know that because you’ve already given us a ‘like’, right?).
