Dala or Dalla Township (Burmese: ဒလမြို့နယ်, pronounced [dəla̰ mjo̰nɛ̀]) is located on the southern bank of Yangon river across from downtown Yangon, Myanmar. The township, made up of 23 wards and 23 village track (including 50 villages), is bounded by the Yangon river in the north and east, the Twante Canal in the west, and Twante Township in the south.
Despite its strategic location near Yangon, the township is still largely rural and undeveloped mainly because it still lacks a bridge across the Yangon river, with connections between the township and the city being by ferry only. A bridge project was announced for 2017, with an MOU signed with a Korean company, however no building work had begun by June 2019. Dalla has 30 primary schools and two high schools.
