  • We went on the advice of a friend to see their collection of old laquerware. Really incredible shop that has been run by the same family for generations. They have an excellent collection of older tra...  more »

  • Really lovely lacquerware workshop. Much more workshop than store with a great educational tour of the lacquerware making process. Also one of the least pushy buying processes I've encountered in Myanmar. A bit hard to find as the sign by the main road is not so visible; look for Golden Cuckoo (or something like that) and turn down that road. The workshop itself has a sign. They also sell very attractive antique lacquerware.
  • We visited Nov 2017 and loved meeting the craftsmen. The two sons speak English well and we learnt a lot about lacquerware - the resin, natural colours, underground drying room, coconut brushes etc. If you visit yourself then you get discount prices as they don't have to pay commission to a guide. I've lived in Myanmar nearly two years and this was the best quality I've seen. Also some antique boxes and bells available in their shop. They take Visa/MasterCard. Apparently some rivals tell people it has closed but go see for yourself! Go down the lane which is north of the Manuha Temple (and same Irrawaddy side of the road), just south of the small bridge over the dry river bed.
  • Authentic lacquerware shop that is family owned. You will leave with a better understanding of the long and staking process each item requires. Beautiful stuff. Worth it to find and buy from them—great quality, beautiful craftsmanship, and supports a local family. Look no further.
  • If you want to visit a true family run lacquerware shop this is the place to go. The family is super nice and they will tell you all about the process. The prices are better too since it's a small family shop. Great people!
  • Very nice and attractive designs. I would definitely recommend

Where to stay in Bagan

Bagan accommodations try their best to fit in with the atmosphere of spirituality and mystery that clings to the temple town. As such, you won't find any high-rise hotels here. Instead, a number of squat wooden lodges, converted traditional houses, and new boutique resorts (all pretty low to the ground) provide the main options for those staying in town. Among them, you'll find some that offer a slightly better range of facilities--including well-maintained pools and restaurants--and others that offer basic dormitory accommodation.
