Fodor's Expert Review Zegyo Market
Mandalay's oldest market dates back to King Mindon (father of Thebaw, the last king of Burma). The original structure has been replaced by a Chinese-style mall, but the hive of activity outside is more interesting than the household goods sold within. A wide array of produce is available here, neatly grouped in colorful piles, and locals come out in full force to do their marketing. Dried shrimp and fish paste make good, nonperishable souvenirs.
