  • Impressive market by its effervescence of transactions. The faces are serious, focused, negotiations are after and nevertheless the smiles return to any photo. We are on vacation, they work. Harassment for you not sell anything, just a few indications if you show an interest. Strongly advised not to invest without a solid understanding of the product but what small trinkets 4 slot... no limits! A small grey and lilac jade elephant walked in our luggage. That said the more delusional phenomenon happens in the street: hundreds of bikes and other scooters lined up next to the other "jockeys" which you wield gear with absolute dexterity and you leave your gear to the bottom of the stack and less time than it takes to tell... Delirium! A must see!

  • Local market were many people gather to trade jade stones and play traditional games. Better to go in the mornings.  more »
  • It was in the plan go to jade market but our guide insisted saying that it was a place where few tourists go and that going to impact and indeed it was! Arriving us impact first of all the thousands and thousands of scooters parqueafas around the entire market, then to enter and start walking was impressive to see the trade which is carried out every day. Of course that is "black" market in the sense that every transaction is cash and without tax or purchase documents. Expert buyers have special lights that help them to see the stones inside and determine the quality and purity. He had since huge stones until ready to put in a gem polished jade stones. The experience was awesome to see so much trade and commercial transactions. Is well worth visit in the morning to understand a bit of the culture.

Where to stay in Mandalay

Look at the area to the southwest of the royal palace for the main choice of accommodations in Mandalay. Some cushier options sit on the main thoroughfares, offering rooms with balconies overlooking the core architectural and historic sights. A number of basic hotels lie close to the main train station, while budget-friendly guesthouses concentrate in the area around 25th Street. Farther to the west, some hotels have views of the river, while to the east lie lodgings with convenient proximity to major regional highways.
