#3 of 7 in Shopping in Mandalay
Zegyo Market, located in downtown Mandalay, is the oldest and most important market in Mandalay.HistoryZegyo Market, covering 12 acres, was founded during the reign of King Mindon. It was a principal distribution center for beans, citrus fruit, cotton, nuts, onions, rice, tobacco and wheat as well as the main market for jewellery and handicrafts such as silver and gold embroidery. The market was totally destroyed by fire in 1897, and rebuilt in 1903 with a masonry structure designed by an Italian, Count Conte Calderari. In the 1990s, the colonial era structure was pulled down and replaced with a Chinese-style shopping center.

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.
