There are loads of shops all selling the same stuff. We came here very early when most of the stalls are still closed or just setting up. There are heaps of stalls here so I assume bargaining would be quite fun, but we didn't come here to buy anything just for a look see. Even though we were early 8am... More

Had a huge range of things including (but not limited to): bags, jewellery, clothes, home wares, food etc. We first went to the Russian Markets, however, we found it to be very crowded and small. Additionally, the owners would offer you ridiculous prices in which the did not want to barter at all. Because of this we decided to head... More

Amazing architecture from outside , this was built by French in early 20th century. The inside part of this market was full stuffs from China , there were just a few things made in this country so it was good to see but not interesting to buy

If you're a market person, you'll probably love Central Market, but all in all it isn't very different to any other large Asian market place. The main structure is impressive, and there are countless stalls arranged in a reasonably orderly fashion, but the bulk of what they sell is very much same-same.

It's a typical market place when you talk about the shops, but the market itself has nice architecture so it's definitely worth as stop.

I have been to Bangkok Chatuchak, Ho Chi Min Ban thanh market as well as the market in Yangon. Among all this one is the best in terms of structure as it is not so hot and humid. Items sold are all about the same and must bargain. However this market you can bargain up to 30% only while others... More

My husband and I caught tuk tuks to market, they are such a lovely way to travel in the heat and all the drivers were helpful and were the highlight of our trip. Anyway we both bought prescription glasses at this market which are excellent and were inexpensive. Unlike Russian market, there was room to move between the shops and... More
