There is a big market in the center of Kalaw. The closing time of the market is relatively early and it is closed around 5 PM, we recommend that you go early, if you need to buy something. Although, it is irregular, the market is held next to the central market. It seems to be due to the Myanmar calendar, so please check it at the front desk of the hotel.
Most of the irregular market is vegetables, meat, fish. It seems that people living in the outskirts of Kalaw take them around. Most of them are Pao Races, who are wearing like blankets on their heads. People of the Pao tribe often have farming around Kalaw.
The recommended shopping in Kalaw is tea leaf and honey. Kalaw is a famous production area of ??Myanmar tea, so I recommend you to buy Myanmar tea leaf. Depending on the size, it is about 1 pack, 500 kya, 1,000 kya, so it is better for your souvenirs. Taste looks like Oolong tea taste. It is a tea served at a Myanar restaurant etc.
Also, honey is good. The taste is wonderful and tasty. Of course, it is 100% pure honey without mixing. The price is about 700ml, about 4,000 kya, about 350yen. However, it is inconvenient to take home because it is packed in bottles, so we recommend replacing it with a Pet bottle and placing it in vinyl over and over again.
