We visited somewhat late, at midday, when the busiest hours are 8.30-11.00. There was still plenty to see. No-one plays any attention when you take close-up photos of the sellers and merchants disagreeing over the values of jade pieces. Many have mobile phones suspended in...More

Fascinating to witness the extensive myriad of stalls,and the demarcation of burmese and chinese traders.The online camera on the counters said it all. The mass of pre cleaved stones,and the utilisation of left overs was interesting .Constant wetting and polishing,and searching for perfect matches.

Having been taken there with pretty low expectations, it was, along with the teak bridge, a highlight of Mandalay. You start with huge chunks of jade, some of them with circles designated on them, to show where the purist areas were situated. And from there,...More

This is NOT a real jade market, it is street-sellers flogging poor quality & over-priced stone/ rock rejects. If u cannot see such poor quality upon arrival, then u deserve to be ripped-off in the ultimate tourist-trap. Ask any local or taxi-driver & they will...More
