Just another market, mostly with precious stones and jade and a minor part with textiles, arts, antique items and a food court. If you have plenty fo time make a visit, if you're in a hurry don't mind because you don't miss something special.

Stopped by on a Saturday morning at 930, and most of the shops were still setting up. Around 11 most seemed to be operating. Not sure what the official opening time is.

Most stall vendors are very polite, and not aggressive. There are some vendors walking around who are aggressive, but they were mostly in the main walkways. The one exception are the food vendors. Walk into the food area and you'll be bombarded; so don't go unless you want something to eat or drink.

Most of the market is under cover, so fine to go even if at raining. Some shops are along small streets, and you have to go outside to get from building to building, but don't need an umbrella.

Most places quoted prices in US dollars, but you can pay in Kyat. Of course you need to haggle/negotiate prices or you will pay way too much.

Most of the market is fabrics/clothes, gems/jewelry, and shoes. There are some paintings/art, but not nearly as many souvenir shops as I expected. Many more locals shopping there than tourists. Many edits make their products on sight. So spend some time watching them make jewelry by hand or sewing fabric on pedal powered sewing machines.

Our visit here was disappointing. The market is almost entirely dedicated to jade and precious stones. If you aren't interested in those then there is not so much else to see

Loved visiting every shop in this two-storey place, filled with Art shops, textiles, precious gems and jewellery, shoes and even antique shops too.

A lot of souvenir shops, the quality is not the best as we seen better things in Myanmar.
Go there only if you have spare time.
