Opened daily from early morning, the market greets tourists with much fresher morning air. There is a wide range of stalls in the footpath, selling newly-harvested vegetables, fresh meat and fish, clothing and dry goods. In case you want to buy souvenirs, traditional Karen fabrics are sold there at a much cheaper price compared with any other souvenir shop in town.

Talking a walk around the market on your Burma tour, you will possibly be tempted by plenty of prepared snacks and bites cooked right in front of you by street vendors. In case you do not want to walk, you can just drop by a tea or coffee shop, have a sip and please watch the vibrantly buzzing morning going by.
