I was amused to note that Bogyoke Market looks exactly like Binh Thanh in Saigon and the huge Mercado in Havana. There must have been just one colonial market architect back in the day!
There's everything you could want here, although I think that items were a bit more expensive than if you had bought them up north in their originating markets. However, it's a very convenient way to do your last minute shopping and have a really fun time while you do it.
The standout feature here is, of course, all the gem dealers. It's dazzling. Don't forget to bargain and more importantly, if you are tempted by expensive stones, get them tested at the in-market gem lab before you part with your hard-earned.

The market is sometimes called as Scott market – its old British name. The market has more than 2000 shops and is popular for Myanmar handicrafts and souvenirs. If you are looking for buying the local Burmese sarong-style lower garment called longyi as a souvenir, then head to U Maung Maung in the main hall – they have a good selection of them all within 10 $.

This is a fair-sized market. I am really baffled how there are so many stores selling the same thing. There are so many gold, silver and gem shops next to each other and while many show they are certified by some governmental agency, I was still concerned, so I passed even though the prices and workmanship were good. There are also clothing stores essentially selling the same thing. I guess it all comes down to how much the consumer can bargain. Quite a way to spend some time browsing or window shopping.

We spent hours wandering around here, drifting from stall to stall. There are indeed many marvelous things to see, but I feel this market is mainly for the tourist, and the prices affirm that. Still, if local products are what you seek, and you do not have the time or energy to fine-comb the streets of Yangon, then this is the place for you; its clean, cool, safe and friendly.

Very average street market. We went here desperate to spend our money on souvenirs and we only managed to pick up one picture that we liked. Lots of shops selling jade jewellery and fabrics, and a few shops selling small souvenirs, but for a place that has literally 100+ shops nearly all of them seem to be selling the exact same things. Very disappointing, the shopping mall nearby with the usual High Street Brand’s actually offered more diversity and we ended up spending more time there than in the local market.

Usually when the wife and I go on holiday we spend loads of time in markets picking up local items for our collections, so very disappointed this one has let us down.

We visited in the hope of buying some souvenirs but left empty-handed. I guess if you were in the market for jewellery and fabrics, then this is the place for you. We found it a very bland experience as it lacked any character as compared to other local markets we visited in Myanmar. I guess we enjoy the more vibrant feel of markets that cater to local tastes with its smells and general chaos, so this market wasn't really for us!

A market for Shopping for gems, clothes and artifacts. centrally located. many shops still remain closed post covid. business doesnt seem to be in full swing since covid started. slowly limping back to normalcy. the authenticity of gems cannot be ascertained. one can get a good price if you are good at bargaining. some shops owned by Indians. good handicrafts and paintings available for sale.

Large market selling all sorts of Myanmar goods ranging from quite pricey jewellery (amber, jade etc) through local clothes and T shirts, and ornaments etc. Pretty big and definitely worth wandering around. Not expensive either.

If you cross the railway track at the bridge at the back it takes you to some good local restaurants.

The market is featured as the asian street market with huge variety of food, green grocery and stuffs.
The tourist could go for a look and leave with out any complaint.
Many kind of tropical fruit for you to choose.
That would be nice experience for everyone who would like to exploring Yangon

My wife and I stayed at Pan Pacific Hotel, which is located across the road from this market, during our holiday in Yangon.

We decided to visit this market to have a look. The central area is mostly shops selling jewellery. Outer areas are mostly shops selling clothes and fabric.
