Kyaing Tong Market

Many of the Shan, Akha, Wa and Lahu people come from their homes in the surrounding hills to the main Kyaing Tong market to trade with one other. The market boasts of a diverse array of products, from the handicrafts made by the ethnic minority tribes, to the numerous goods brought in across the border from China or Thailand. The market is also an excellent place to sample some of the most delicious and authentic Shan dishes in Myanmar.
