Yangon Shopping

Teashops are popular with the locals as they feature good, inexpensive food. Burmese, Chinese and Indian snacks and main dishes are all available at these crowded shops. Street food is readily available also, and some of the best can be found along 19th street, between Anawartha and Mahabandoola roads. International fast food is becoming more popular with local residents, and a number of major franchises are represented.

Shopping is excellent in Yangon, in both quality and variety. The markets here are reportedly the best in the country. Bogyoke Aung San Market is a great place to browse. Housed in an old warehouse that dates from the colonial period, which is connected with other buildings that are filled with shops of all types, the market makes for a great excursion.

In additional to goods you’d typically find at a market, you’ll also find a wide-ranging selection of Burmese products including hand-crafted items such as carvings, lacquer ware, puppets and textiles as well as antiques and gems. If you make sure to haggle over prices, you can come away with some good bargains. Other markets of note include Bayinnaung, Mingalar and Thiri Mingalar markets, while there are numerous market stalls in Chinatown.

If you’re interested in hand-blown glass, the Na-Gar glass factory in Hlaing Township is not far from Yangon, and is worth the drive. Here you’ll see unique pieces on display and ornaments, vases and wineglasses for sale at very reasonable prices. In Yangon, art lovers will find a selection of interesting galleries. New Treasure Art, for example, features local works in oil and watercolour.

For gems and jewellery, you’ll want to head to very popular Myanmar Gems Museum and Market. Underneath the museum are several floors of shops offering gems and jewellery of all types and prices. You can find some decent bargains here, but it’s important to know your stuff or to shop with someone who does.
