  • Pomelo is a little hidden on the 2nd floor in the vicinity of the monsoon restaurant. Pomelo is a gift shop with many original, locally produced articles of good quality. Ideal gifts at the post home-bring.

  • WOW WOW WOW!! I had no idea about this shop before I got to Yangon, until a friend told me it was the ONLY place I should visit whilst I was staying. It's just such a treasure trove and I LOVE that it is all made by local artisans and supports local artisans from Myanmar. The girls working there could not have been more helpful or informative and I left with arms bulging full of presents (my fav was the wooden chopping boards, so beautiful). In this day and age it is always best to support Fair Trade but sometimes that can come at a cost to style but not here! Pomelo is full or such gorgeous things. Please can it start shipping worldwide as I need more presents now that my stash has run out!!
  • Pomelo sells unique jewelry and colorful home furnishings and decor made from local materials and produced by local artisans. Their stock is fun and contemporary.
  • A fair trade shop that tries to make an impact - if you have no time to go and support local communities in their villages, this shop is a good alternative. They have locally made nice things and while some are very beautiful they for sure come at higher price than from Bogyoke Market. Take time to peek in the shop, it's definitely worth it!
  • Quite nice stuff, very similar to all fair trade shops in Europe. Some beautiful fabrics.
  • Beautiful Fair Trade shop, with products made by different artisans from all over Myanmar.

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.
