18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Floating market

123 Visit the floating market with us! Hand-made goods for local use and trading are another source of commerce. Typical products include tools, carvings and other ornamental objects, textiles, and cheroots. When held on the lake itself, trading is conducted from small boats. This 'floating-market' event tends to emphasize tourist trade much more than the other four. A local market serves most common shopping needs and is held daily but the location of the event rotates through five different sites around the lake area (Nyaungshwe, Heho, Taunggyi, Minethauk, Shwenyaung), thus each of them hosting an itinerant market every fifth day.
