Bogyoke Aung San Market is one the best place to explore for visitors to Myanmar. Most of the guests enjoy this place because there are lots of sprawling shops where you can buy gems and jewelry, Myanmar arts and crafts such as painting, wood curving. From the historical point of view, this is one of old colonial buildings and the architecture is very interesting.
It opens from Tuesday to Sunday from 0900 am to 0500 pm normally, it closes on every Monday and Official Government holidays of Myanmar. Thought it opens at 0900 am, the best time to explore this market would be 1300 PM ~ 1600 PM if you combine sightseeing with other place.
You can use credit card as most of jewelry shops and most of shop there accept USD and EUR if you don’t have enough Myanmar Kyats (MMK). Another good news is there are many exchange counters and ATMs there. Enjoy shopping! Don’t miss to buy nice slipper there. Fantastic!
