Large covered market where locals and tourists can buy clothing, jewelry, and various trinkets. Big selection and good prices if you bargain. Tip for ladies: pick out your favorite fabric and have it sawn into a skirt in 10 minutes.

This is a large covered market where bargaining is expected. There are all manor of items for sale from gem encrusted jewels to laquer ware to junk. Bargain hard but beware. Even when buying expensive jewelry.. some of the workmanship does not hold up. Sadly, I bought an expensive beautiful multicolored sapphire set of earrings and within 2 wearings several... More

A lively local market with interesting items at decent prices for tourists. Fragrant and crowded in some areas it its 't form2everyone. But there are some lightly trafficked areas with more expensive touristy selections. The market offers fabrics, clothing, jewelry, and locally made arts and crafts. Most prices are negotiable and it is cash only. Keep track of where you... More

The market is nothing but a tourist trap. The shop keepers need to pay high rent for the shops do everything is overpriced. I think it's at least priced at 1.5x. It is a good place to pass time and browse. Better to buy in the smaller cities like Bagan or Mandalay.

We have gone to many similar markets, this 75 years old market is less stuffy & crowded. Many jades & handicraft stores etc. Nothing for me here as I am not a fan of these stuff. Oh... I only bought 2 packets of thanaka here & a locally designed ipad casing.

We didn't buy anything but I like to feel and smell in a market. Lots of tourists and local people. Great to see how local people took a rest outside of the market with some coffee and tea. Just sitting on very simple small chairs and had carton boxes as tables.
