Shopping in Burma

Jump to last reply

OK, so I'm a bit of a world shopaholic. It's part of the fun.

And in doing my shopping research, here's a very interesting article I found in the NYTimes about modern artist in Yangon:

Wow, it really inspired me to bring home a modern art painting in Yangon. (If affordable!)

Also wondering about what can be taken out of the country. I thought I read somewhere that antiques cannot be taken out, yet I've read in LP about many upscale places that sell quality antiques in the "Back Room".

But besides modern art and antiques, I'm looking for nice quality crafts, art and jewlery in Bagan, Inle Lake and Yangon.

Does anyone have Burma shopping experiences and recos for the best
shopping in Burma?
