Very interesting to see
Oct 2019
Here you are shown how lacquerware is produced which is very impressive. The use of egg shells in the lacquerware - which is done by hand - ist beautiful artwork. It´s a nice place to buy souvenirs.

Well and truly lacquered
Feb 2019 • Couples
This was actually very interesting at the start of our visit. A lady gave an informative talk about the different techniques of making lacquerware starting with eggshells progressing to sap and gold leaf. All items are handmade and take a long time to be the finished article. Away from the shop floor you got followed around in the hope of a sale. We are browsers and go back to things we like - pressure selling is a no no.

Wow you must see the eggshell lacquerware in process
Dec 2018 • Friends
We were blown away by the process to use two types of eggs (ducks and chickens) to create this incredible lacquerware. At this factory they also make other types, including gold leaf, but we enjoyed looking at the process and of course purchased a few eggshell items to take home!

We visited as part of a cruise group. Facinating to see the stages in making the lacquer ware. Pieces are modern and traditional in style but very expensive.

Simple explanation of Lacquerware followed by a nice store to shop in
Jul 2016 • Friends
The explanation and simple demonstration of how Lacquerware is made is informative. The selection of lacquerware available to buy was quite good ranging from simple souvenirs to expensive artwork. The shop had traditional style goods as well as more modern. You may be able to bargain a slightly better price for the more expensive pieces. This was a fun place to browse and you will probably buy something to take home.

Learn About Lacquered Items
Aug 2016 • Couples
Well worth a stop of an hour or so. See the story of lacquer explained and ladies working on items and the very extensive showroom. All kinds of lacquered plates, boxes, bowls and elephant ornaments for example. Cheaper obviously than buying at a Night Bazaar and you learn a little bit about the craft.
Recommended.

not really worth a stop
Aug 2015 • Family
quite a disapointing viit
A VERY rapid explanation of how you do laquer and then an average range of objects for you to buy
What a difference with the visits you can do in nearby Myanmar
not worth it if you do not have a car and you have to pay for a tour

Nice Collection
Nov 2014 • Couples
They have an extensive range of lacquer ware here in the huge showroom. Price-wise I'm not sure if it's reasonable although I think they're quite expensive. If you're just window shopping, it's a nice place to view all kinds of lacquer ware.

Sensational-must see!
Jul 2014 • Friends
I've been here in July 2014 and the rang and prices are OUSTANDING!
The RANGE is what is key here. Sure you can buy other lower quality items on the street, BUT the quality and range is fantastic. Seriously, are you going to complain you could pick up the same item (you can never beat buying from THE factory) for $5 AUS instead of $3AUS on the street. Seriously how hard up can you get? Go and have a look at the range of gifts and make YOUR OWN mind up. The TUK TUK is about $10AUS -each way from market street.
