Welcome to Mogok

As well as rubies, you'll find sapphires, emeralds, and lapis lazuli and other semi-precious gems on sale in the markets. Many of the traders are Chinese or Indian. If you're interested in purchasing any stones, be sure you know what you are doing, as this isn't a place for rookie gem-buyers.

In addition to rubies, Mogok has a beautiful mountain setting with a significant Shan population, as well as Palaung and Lisu. There are a number of eye-catching pagodas and a WWII cemetery containing the remains of British soldiers who died fighting nearby.
