In the past, the Mon people lived in the vicinity of Yangon, at that time it was opened Shwedagon Pagoda famous for Yangon by Mon People. In addition, Mawlamyine’s fruit is said very delicious, especially Mawlamyine’s watermelon is sweet and tasty. The taste is about the same sweetness as the taste of Japanese watermelon. Also, Mawlamyine’s Pamelon is famous and its shape is totally different, but it is almost the same taste as grapefruit. In addition, it seems that Mon cuisine is delicious even in Myanmar cuisine, and Mon women are said Mon Ladies are good cooks. But, to be honest, I can not tell the difference between the taste of Myanmar cuisine and Mon cuisine for me.
For history etc. , please see Wikipedia.
