“Nice”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

Nice place to shop. So much to see but very little time. Precious or semi precious stones, beautiful wood carvings to local clothing. Spoilt for choices. You can get better prices if a local guide is with you.

“Super turistic”
Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

This was a disappointment- they only sell gems and paintings and woodcrafts of low quality- its also depressing aa there are far more sellers than buyers and overall doesnt have much of the asian market atmosphere...

“Great Shopping Experience”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

One of the better markets on my tour of Southeast Asia. Wide variety of quality merchandise, particularly jade, gems, lacquerware and fabrics. Excellent assortment of shops and eateries located in a handsome and spacious building that is easy to negotiate. Lots of attractive goods in a relatively pleasant shopping environment. Vendors are a bit less aggressive here than in many other places, but remember to bargain!

“Bogyoke Market”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This is a must do when you are in Yangon. There are numerous shops ranging from clothing, jewelry, antiques, pottery, etc. The atmosphere is like a flea market in that you can barter with the shops. If you are first in the morning you get the best price. First sales are good luck and you can bargain for the best price. However, it is best to be respectful and not offensive if you do not get the price you want. There are many young children who walk around and sell and play upon your emotions saying they need food etc. We have actually hired them to take us around and be our guides to help us get around the market. They can be inexpensive.
