Although for natives and not overpriced, this market is not prepared for tourists and it is very ugly, confused and dirty. Dont worth a trip

It seems a place for all kinds of handicrafts from carvings to paintings. There are also many gem shops. For a taste of real Yangon, go across the road to the hypermart for where the locals shop.
