Nagar Glass Factory

Opened in 1948, most of the Nagar Glass Factory in Yangon was destroyed by the cyclone in 2009. Although they haven't been able to rebuild the kiln, there are still wonderful hand-blown and mold-made cups, vases, bowls, chess pieces, etc. etc. scattered all over the grounds (occasionally sorted by color and type) for sale. The family will tell you about its history and show you a photo from 1966 of astronaut John Glenn's visit.
