Shopping in Myanmar-Burma

Precious metal and stone mining is widespread in Myanmar, so tourists can shop simple fashion jewelry and expensive fine jewelry with sapphires, rubies, and pearls. The price difference is really big. As expected, jewelry stores have the highest prices and sellers in small shops and at markets have the cheapest prices but can also sell fakes. Myanmar has limitations regarding the export of jewelry, so don’t forget to ask the seller to give you the certificate of quality and the document that permits the export. By the way, there are many souvenirs with the image of Buddha, but there are limitations regarding the export of these items from the country. That being said, to enjoy a safe flight home and prevent any potential problems, tourists are better to ask their guide or hotel’s staff about these limitations. … Open
