We visited the market multiple times during our month long trip. Biggest tip... Remember to bargain! Things to do: EXCHANGE MONEY I used the money exchange "guys" near the back of the market to exchange USD into kyats. Make sure you have new bills otherwise...More

Please be careful about its opening hour. It is closed every monday. I heard from some comments in WEB saying that it opens 7 days a week. This is NOT correct.

Fab market- so much to see and do. Go to people watch and then find lots of treasures. We ate in the market - from a little side cafe- very cheap and basic set up but great veg and rice! Super friendly. Go upstairs to...More

Unless you're into Burmese fabrics and gems/jewellery, you'll find this would-be market of no interest whatsoever. A tourist attraction whose only attractiveness is that it's free. We couldn't wait to leave.

I would say this is similar to the Chatuchak market in Bangkok on a smaller scale. It's the best place to buy souvenirs - gemstones, longyi (Burmese traditional skirt), fabrics etc. I bought 3 longyis for 13,000 kyat but have heard that you can get...More

Typical Asian (mostly) indoor market selling all sorts of lovely local souvenirs, particularly local Longgyi, jade and sandalwood sculptures - ideal for gifts! Definitely recommended!

Tourist trap. Venders are ready to take your money and give you fake or inferior goods. Spending 5 minutes here is more than sufficient. If you have time to kill, do it. Totally not worth the effort to come here at all.

Easily access as it located in the busy area of the city. Option for those who want to look for cheaper & traditional items, just across the road from Junction Mall connected by pedestrian bridge. Here is the place for visitors to look for any...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. . .
