Myanmar Shopping

Where to Shop and What to Buy in Myanmar

While duty-free shops, department stores, supermarkets and minimarkets in Yangon offer a wide choice of products, both foreign and local with fixed prices, the real magic of shopping is to be found mainly in the well-known Bogyoke Aung San Market where shopping is fun and easy; and bargaining is acceptable.

Situated in the heart of Yangon, housing 2,000 shops with a wide selection of unique locally made goods, luxury buys such as precious jewellery of gold and gems, silverware, arts and crafts, lacquerware, 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.

The shops at Bogyoke Aung San market are open daily from 9.30am. To 5.00pm except on Mondays and gazetted holidays. Shopping amongst a range of locally produced articles can be a delightful experience.

Myanmar has a long tradition of crafting beautiful items.
