Bargain. There are about four floors of stores then the gem museum. Sometimes it feels as though there is collusion amongst the sellers, but not a all, so shop well and bargain

If you are looking to buying Gems in Myanmar then I feel this is the most reliable place in Myanmar. The ground, first and second floors are the shopping area and the third floor is the museum.

Not very crowded and not a lot of pressure to purchase on the sales floor. The museum on the fourth floor had a lot of interesting pieces and was informative.
