This market houses a variety of stalls ,mainly selling clothes,textiles and semi precious stones /pearls .We got good buys for pearl necklaces and earrings ,but you got to try to bargain ,some vendors refuse to give much discount .There are 2 stalls selling hand-embroidered shawls,table runners knit blouses - in all sorts of pretty colours .We bought many items from these stalls as the prices are very reasonable .
Our other good bargains are skirts made from good quality stretcy fabrics ,you see a lot of the locals wearing them too ,many colours and patterns to choose from and each costs about 1000 -1200 kyat.
It's mango season when we visited ,they are sold outside the perimeter of the market areas- the "diamond" mangoes are delicious - lusciously sweet and juicy !
There are many shops selling jewellery but I was more interested in purchasing raw uncut jade stones .If you purchase these raw stones ,make sure the shop issue you a voucher to declare that is it legally purchased, otherwise , the custom could confiscate them when you leave Myanmar .
