Business Hours

Government offices and Post Offices open Monday to Friday, 09:30 until 16:30. Private business offices may open for slightly longer hours and open on Saturday mornings. Small shops and supermarkets often open 7 days a week from 09.00 or 10.00 until as late as 21.00. Shops in quiet small towns may keep shorter hours and larger businesses are usually closed on weekends.

Teashops and restaurants keep highly variable hours. Many teashops open at dawn for commuters and market shoppers, and close in the afternoon or early evening. Other teashops may only open in the shade of late afternoon and may stay open as late as midnight. Local restaurants serving breakfasts such as Mohinga open early but many restaurants specialise in serving lunch. These open later and are typically closed by 19.00 or 20.00. Restaurants aimed at the tourist trade may close later, at around 21.00. Bars and ‘Beer Stations’ are usually closed by 22.30.
