    They say to experience a country's culture the easiest way is visit their market. And true enough, Myanmar's richness in mining is mostly what you find there. A lot of gold, silver, jade, and stones. ...  more »

    Will find many small Myanmar souvenirs suitable for air travel. Better to shop mornings as temperature rises during day. Many shops do not have air conditioners but fans which may not be very effective.

    Definitely a must visit location. Can be crowded and a bit confusing. Obviously use your judgement when getting "recommendations" from touts. Definitely a functional goods market, not just for tourists. Go upstairs for more local tailors and some great crafts and handmade goods. In anything, haggle some but expect to get what you pay for in terms of quality.

    Best market for tourist to buy souviners from Myanmar such as gems, jade carvings, wood carvings, lacquer ware, puppets, clothing and so on. Public bathrooms here are just ok for emergency. Parking space very difficult. Drop off and pick up at a rendezvous point is highly recommended.

    One of the must tourist attraction spot. All kind of souvenirs and local products can be found. You can get from fabric, music CDs to Jewlery. The market is well organized in a British-styled building.

Where to stay in Yangon (Rangoon)

It can be difficult to find decent budget accommodations in Yangon, especially downtown, where rooms are usually small and booked months in advance. Look farther away from the city center for cozier budget options, often with complimentary breakfast included. The Kandawgyi lakeside features a number of high-end establishments.
