Shopping

Traditional crafts, such as lacquerware, waxed-paper parasols, simple pottery, handwoven fabrics and puppets, are among the souvenirs that you are most likely to shop for in Mynamar. Contemporary art and modern crafts are particularly strong in Yangon, and if you have the time, it's worth considering having some clothes tailor-made here. Be careful when buying antiques and jewellery, though, as it's easy to be sold fakes.
