Scotts Market - Review of Bogyoke Aung San Market, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar
Many and many stands. They are in a local eatery at the back of the stands, which had a good choice of groceries to try. There are a number of memorabilia such as the Longyi and Thanaktha, as well as the common woodcarvings and candlesticks. When you are particularly in a rush to buy a small (or large) gift at the market, this is the right place, with stands that offer everything from groceries to jewelry to handicrafts.
If you are not pressed for a certain amount of space, it is an attractive place to be. It' a beautiful market and the local residents are not intrusive sellers. You have a beautiful department for jewellery in ruby and golden, which also offers it. I had a great love for jewellery. Different types of souvenir for shoppers, such as 100% 100% organic wool T-shirt with genuine historic design, Myanmar cover, etc.
If you want to buy a big one, you need to be sure you have jewellery, especially ruby and it. This market also sells tea and instant coffee with its own taste. Have you been to Bogyoke Aung San Market?
Yangon (Rangoon) Museum, Market, Art and more
Having been suffocated for years by the hard work of a dictatorship, Yangon's institutions, fine arts centers and marketplaces can now thrive independent of each other and fully exploit the tremendous opportunities offered by Myanmar's peoples and cultur. Myanmar's National Musuem is the premier collection of Myanmar's arts, histories and cultures.
His hopeless appearance and his bad curating conceal a plethora of Myanmar's regal times riches, among them the lion enthrone of the last king, Thibaw. You' ll find the Muzeum on Pyay Road - a brief cab journey from the city centre (K1500). K5000 is closed on Tuesdays.
Home of the independent protagonist Aung San at the moment of his demise, Bogyoke Aung San Museum, a mansion from the Colonies, which today shows souvenirs from his too brief afterlife. His daugther, the heroine of democracies Aung San Suu Kyi, also flourished here. Formerly open only one night a year, it is now open all year round and is situated at Bogyoke Aung San Museum Lane 15 (north of Kandawgyi Lake, K2,500 cab from the city centre).
Panwa Road, Kamayut Township (K2,500 cab from the city centre). To do something completely different, visit the Drug Elimination Museums - a fascinating distorted view into the Myanmar story until recently. Among the high points are the pure extent and abundance, among them many good (and sometimes violent) work against narcotics diagrams, some seriously false stories and a specific section in which you are guided by the kind members of the museums who are supposed to give you the impression of being on narcotics - full of many degenerated dummies.
Situated on the intersection of Hanthawady Road and Kyun Taw Road, Kamayut Township (K2500 cab from the city centre). Aung Soe Min is the head of the evolving countryside; his Pansodan Gallery shows a large number of locals and holds an every Tuesday from 8 p.m. on the first level of 286 Pansodan Road, a staircase up from the sidewalk.
Burma is a galleria, lecture hall and showroom in one of the most stylish inner city boulevards, on the top level of 98 Bogalayzay; it is representing aspiring Myanmar artist and working to increase consciousness of their work. Right around the Corner of Myanm/Art, Deitta is a modern Myanmar based conservation galery devoted to the Myanmar documentation industry, which includes photographing, filmmaking and typing. It is situated in the city centre on 44th St. in an elegancefully restau redecorated, old-fashioned, old-fashioned, lofthouse room.
Founded in 2005 by a New Zealander, Gill Pattison, the River Galerie shows Myanmar's broad palette of modernists. In 1989, Myanmar's international renowned painter Aung Myint, a trailblazer of experiential arts, opened the Inya Kunst Galerie in his workshop to present his work. Located at 50 B Inya Street, next to Lake Inya, the galery is still located in this inconspicuous room.
The National Museum also has a large Myanmar older artwork library. There are a number of city centre vendors for Englishspeaking literature, but the best places to choose from are Inwwa Bookstore (downtown at 301 Pansodan St - top block) and Monument Schools ('150 Dhammazedi Road', Bahan Township - near Shwedagon Pagoda and a K2500 cab from downtown).
Burmese fairs are known as Yangon and Yangon has a large number of them that sell a large number of goods. The Bogyoke Aung San Market (often abbreviated as Bogyoke Market or Scott Market) is located on the north outskirts of the city centre on Bogyoke Aung San Road and is Yangon's most popular shopping destination.
There is bargaining at Bogeyoke Market, but even if you don't buy anything, the market is a nice place to walk around and absorb the ambience (although today it is largely aimed at tourists). You can find Visa- and Mastercard-enabled cash machines here, and it is a good place to find currency exchange on Saturdays and Sundays when your bank is up.
Yangon is perhaps a more genuine Yangon event than Bogyoke Aung San Market, as its rates are lower and its clients are almost exclusively local. It' a vast place that occupies four inner-city boulders around Shwedagon Pagoda Road and is lodged in a mix of classical Yangon architecture and nasty post-war architecture; it gives the visitor the opportunity to observe the buzz in Yangon and see a range of sometimes unfamiliar produce, among them a large variety of medicinal plants and medications.
Capture the Morgenmarkt (6am to 10am) on Theingyi Zay Street 26 to see it in its liveliest form. The 24-hour Thiri Mingalar market is another large and bustling market, with a number of 24 hour open breweries and infantres.
You can find the market on Bayint Naung Road in Hlaing Township (K3500 cab from the city centre). There is something more private about Mia Ruby, a small store that is selling jewelry in Mogok, which is made in Myanmar from hand-cut, unprocessed and naturally occurring jewels, saphires and other valuable nonmilitary gemstones.
The Mia Ruby is 79 Pansodan Street, 79 City Centre, below the Hla Day craft shop (learn more about the increasing number of Yangon's welfare companies and joint ventures here). Yangon also has more contemporary, western-oriented retail centres. City Corner of Bogyoke Aung San Road and Shwedagon Pagoda Road (downtown, across Bogyoke Market).
Yangon's newest and biggest commercial centre with brand shops, a restaurant and a cinemas. 192 Kabar Aye Pagoda Road, Bahan Township. There is another large and contemporary retail centre further out of the city on Inya Lake, offering everything from electronic and sportswear shops to a KFC, a Hard Rock Cafe and some high-end cuisine.
K3,000 cab from the city centre. Market Place at City Mart (Golden Valley) 403 Dhammazedi Road, Bahan Township. K3,000 cab from the city centre. Some of the bigger Yangon properties, and The Chatrium included, allow non-guests to use their own indoor and outdoor facilities, usually for about $20. More convenient are the Western Park Royal Public Swimmingbath on the western side of Lake Kandawgyi and the Kokkine Public Bath at 34 Kokkine Pool Street, Bahan Township (on Saya San Road); K2500 cab from the city centre.
After an active Yangon holiday, the Inya Days Spa is an ideal place to pamper yourself.
