Myanmar (Burma) Things to Do: 464 reviews and 930 photos

Handicrafts are Myanmar?s biggest shopping attraction. Lacquerware, hand-woven textiles, embroidery, woodcarving and silverwork are all good value. Gems and jade are also tempting, but you need to be an expert to be sure of what you are buying.

Myanmar?s traditional markets are not only the best shopping venues but also ideal places in which to browse and absorb the atmosphere of a typical Oriental bazaar, where you will find everything from hardware to handicrafts.
