  • but expectations should not be too high. Except jewelry little goods that tourists are interesting. Mostly imported fabrics and clothing asiastischen style. So who is looking for T-Shirts or similar, is out of place. Action possible only to a limited extent. Opposite, a new Mall is built new Bokyoge market. Opening March 2017. In the area many shops with "All sorts" and a KFC.

  • Good place to visit if intending to get Jade or souvenirs. There are a couple of money changers around the area too. Otherwise nothing much to offer if you are taking a look-see approach.  more »

  • Awesome place to buy jade, traditional Myanmar items , and jewelry. I think a little over priced, but interesting place to look around and Vist.
  • Huge indoor market named after the honored Bogyoke Aung San, father of the now famous Ann San Suu Kyi. Housing art, jewellery, souvenirs, jade, teak ornaments, fabric, t shirts, antiques, and handicrafts. Pricier than other markets, and for this reason, a bit of a tourist trap. But STI worth a visit. Enjoy milk tea and watch jewels and precious stones exchange hands in the center teashops.
  • Historical market built during colonial rule. There are plenty of stalls here, although a lot of them do sell the same thing. I've been told from a reliable source that a lot of the jade is genuine, however if you are a foreigner you will be quoted a much higher price than a local so do try to barter. Do not bother to try to park a car here at any time, it's virtually impossible to find space. Do walk as it is local to many areas
  • There is a huge workshop for local apparel industry on the first floor. The restaurant on the ground floor offers you local flavour.
  • Good whosale and retail place specialy for handicrafts and local goods. Extreme Bargain need to get suitable price. Gems and Stone is also significantly available with reasonable price.
