Huge Mandalay market area with a multistory building with different floors for garments, lungi cloth, shoes, teddy bears and other goods accessible on foot by stairs or by car as a carpark is adjacent.
I found the most interesting part the sections with vegetables, fruits,...More
Want to meet the locals and see how they trade and interact on a random day in Mandalay? This is your chance. We were the only foreigners there and had lots of fantastic moments communicating with the locals. Go go - before it’s too late.
There are shops with traditional Burmese fabrics, a hand woven cotton, silk, linen. The prices are much cheaper at the Zegyo Market, if you good in bargaining, than at other places. Very big selection as well.
This was a interesting view of a day-to-day Burmese market but nothing to buy for tourists. We always love to see this types of markets and we only recommend if you want to experience Burmese lifestyle.
This local market is where you can buy just about anything...foods, clothing, handicrafts.
It's a charming place. But be prepared to ramble among crowds, both residents and tourists.
The market begins very early, so be there to see the loads of fresh vegetables being brought...More
This market starts at about 5am but 9am did us proud. We had a guide who explained all the different vegetables and spices on sale that we don’t get at home. The veg was twice the size of ours that we get back in England...More
This was our favourite experience in mandalay. Go early in the morning to this market to the vegetable areas. It’s a large market with heaps of photo opportunities. Monks out shopping too. Take lots of small change and you can buy some fruit and stuff...More

13th Evening : Mandalay Palace only open in daytime. Mahagandaryone Monastery is worth avoiding (Holy Planet ...) too touristy. Plenty of others. Shwenandaw Kyaung is the highlight of Mandalay - and one of the last teak monasteries left, better than Shwe-In Bin. Next to Mandalay hill. Mahamuni pagoda: must see; it's the Shwedagon of mandalay. Not as gaudy but very important for the Burmese people. From the airport to the hotel - shared taxi, 5$ ; Taxi charge for 1 day? Depends;...More
Help with my itinerary? :) (12 Replies)
Hey everyone! My family and I will be visiting Mandalay in a couple of weeks. We will be doing a DIY itinerary, so I hope I could get your feedback on this plan I made. There will be five of us going (2 people aged mid-50s, and 3 people in their 20s) and we're staying near Diamond Plaza. Anyway, here goes: DAY 1 12:20PM - arrive at Mandalay International Airport *hire local cab for half-day Mandalay City Tour* (any idea how much this will cost?) Shwenandaw Kyaung (Golden Monastery) >...More

Your itinerary looks perfect. Good spots to take good photos are the eastern bank of Ayeyarwady river in the opposite site of Sagaing & the Southern entrance of MyaTheinDan Pagoda in Mingun. IMO , these places are the most beautiful places around Mandalay. Yes, Diamond Plaza is biggest mall in Mandalay. On Day ( 2 ) If you go directly to Sagaing after Mahamuni Pagoda , I highly recommend to visit to SaKyaDiTha Nunnery in Sagaing. It's worth to visit. Enjoy your trip around Mandalay
