  • The market was easy to navigate. Very nice exterior to photograph. There are many jewellery shops here selling precious stones and jades. At the sides of the market you can find the stalls selling fabrics and clothing. You can pick up the Myanmar traditional clothing here or a souvenir T-shirt. On the upper floors, there are fabrics with weaved patterns as well. Overall, a good place to visit to have a look at what is on offer in Yangon.
  • The place there sells mostly Jade, Pearl's, Rubies, Lacquer ware and the local product. The price varies depending on the quality and craftsmanship. Need to spend a little time to negotiate for the best price!
