Fodor's Review

This market, which opened in 1926, is enormous, well-organized, and—despite sweltering temperatures outside—not an oven. Come here on your first day in Yangon to peruse the offerings, and pick up a longyi (sarong) for temple visits. Shops here sell stone and wood carvings; jade, silver, and gold jewelry; lacquerware; paintings by local artists; and a smattering of cosmetics and toiletries. The finest and most authentic hill tribe handicrafts can be found upstairs in the main front building Yoyamay (shop #20) and nearby Myanmar Folk Art (#24), where you’ll find vintage, antique, and new textiles produced by weavers in the Chin, Kayin, and Kayah States.
