If you are like us we always find at the end of a trip that we wish we had bought more small gifts etc.

The actual airport entrance at Yangon does not have many shops at all and I was worried that there might not be the opportunity for last minute gifts. I was pleasantly surprised however. Once you go through the formalities and into the passenger area there is a selection of duty free, a small jewellery shop and a couple of small Burmese handicrafts shops.

What to buy: Brother was able to buy a small jade dragon and even a packet of cheroots. (these of course were confiscated when he arrived at customs Australia as unbeknown to him they contained seeds).Husband bought a book(Bagan) and some cheap, small jade fish.

What to pay: Cheroots US$1
Jade Dragon US$15
Small Jade Fish US$5
