Shopping in Myanmar is a lot better now with the acceptance of free-market kyat as an exchange currency. It is also amusing but totally acceptable to barter with merchants who would be more than happy to trade their wares for some of your goodies such as designer watches, calculators, jeans, T-shirts and so on.

In the larger town areas, you can usually get good bargains at public market places known as zei or zay, in Burmese. Another known as zeigyo (also spelt zei-gyo or zay-cho) is the main central market. It is natural that other markets will be named after the district or township where they are located.

For those who are interested in handicrafts, head on down to the Bogyoke Aung San Market in Yangon or the Zeigyo Market in Mandalay. The arrays of goods for sale are huge and cheap. You can purchase just about anything you want from these two markets. The goods sold at big hotel shops, large air-conditioned shops or the outlets at the departure lounge at Yangon airport are very pricey.
