Bogyoke is one of the famous markets in Yangon. It’s a big market where you can buy all the souvenir items from Myanmar.
We came to this market last week and and I was overwhelmed by the beautiful souvenirs you can buy. What’s nice about it is that the items are quite affordable for a budget tourists like us but they still are considered expensive for the locals.
What are the things you can buy from Bogyoke Aung San Market? Lacquer ware, paintings, gems stones, silver jewelry, beaded bags and wall decorations, picture frames with precious stones embedded on them, Myanmar shirts, embroidery , clothes, carvings and a whole lot more!
It was so tempting to buy a lot of souvenir items especially the beautiful paintings but then, we didn’t have much budget them. So, we just bought souvenir shirts for ourselves worth 5RM ( 70 pesos), wall decorations worth 3RM ( 40 pesos) and small frames with embedded stones for 7 RM ( 100 pesos) to give for our family members back in Malaysia. I was quite contented with what we bought and pleased that we didn’t spend a lot too.
