Jewelry, gems, jade, gold stores are a plenty. Be careful as you cannot be sure if you don't know the difference between genuine and fakes. Other stores sell lonhyi, blouses, slippers (traditional Myanmar clothing) and some sell souvenir items. Gets boring after a while. Food...More

The place to shop if you needed jewelries and Burmese fabric / clothes. Stalls after stalls selling the same thing. Quite pricey and was hard to bargain for better prices!

Was a short look but will certainly go back soon. Some very touristy areas but lots of quiet local corners too. Art souvenirs food and lots of people watching!

This Market was built in 1926 and named after the Municipal Commissioner, Gavin Scott, who probably recognised the need for a good shopping mall. After Myanmar's Independence, they wanted to give it a local name and hence named it after the famous patriot and freedom...More

The market is quite large and covered. It gets very hot during the day and afternoon. I would recommend visiting in the morning or at night. The market has a large number of jewellers, clothes, souveniers, carvings, jade. Prices are a little higher than you...More

Great for souvenirs and fabrics. Otherwise, it’s a typical market you will find all over SE Asia. Good stop while in Yangon, but there are much better shops throughout the city

We have been here several times over the past decade and I must say it is probably my favorite market. Enter through the overhead glassed walk way on Bogyoke Rd that runs between Pan Pacific hotel/Junction city mall and Bogyoke market north of the road....More

Out of my experience I would say, it will be closed as most of the city/daily life gets to standstill during Thingyan. It's the same in the city, where almost ALL shops are closed. But this answer is not 100% updated. . .

Is tour guide necessary? (4 Replies)
Just booked my hotel and realised that its within walking distance(<1.5km) from places like Sule Pagoda and Bogyoke Aung San Market. Now I'm just thinking if engaging a tour guide/driver is necessary to places like Shwedagon Pagoda and etc. I'm not sure what are the other places of interest in Yangon.

No, a guide is not necessary at all. Grab a map and go! If you need info on what other things there are to do, kinldy peruse the forums for more information.

Jade, sim card and spa near Best Western Chinatown? (3 Replies)
1) Can someone please advise me if there's any trustworthy shop in Bogyoke Aung San Market that i can get jade? 2) Can I get any local sim card at the airport with data plan? 3) Besides Sapel Traditional Burmese Foot Spa, any other spa worth going near Best Western Chinatown? What are the good restaurants I can visit nearby? Thanks for all your help.
