Myanmar Shopping


While duty-free shops, department stores, supermarkets and minimarkets in Yangon offer a wide variety of products, both foreign and local with fixed prices, the real enchantment of shopping is to be found chiefly in the famous BogyokeAung San Market where shopping is fun and simple; and bargaining is acceptable. Located in the heart of Yangon, housing 2,000 shops with a wide collection of exclusive locally made goods, luxury buys such as precious jewellery of gold and gems, silverware, arts and crafts, lacquer ware, paintings, traditional wooden dolls, Mandalay silk, typical Shan and Kachin shoulder bags, foodstuffs, cosmetics and tailor-made clothes are a few of the sought-after items.
