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.

I would say that it is a good place for Tourist to buy all the souvenirs under 1 roof. A huge place where you can buy wood craft, T shirts, Jade, drink their coffee, tea, paintings, etc. You will need to bargain for the right price.

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!

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 $.
