Mani Sithu Market in Nyaung-U

Mani Sithu Market is Nyaung-U's main market in the middle of town and offers food and daily supplies for sale to the local community.

From fresh fish fish to cooking oil to betel nut, the Mani Sithu Market in downtown Nyaung-U is the main local market for the town. It’s a permament market and set up under a light wooden structure that occupies a large block in the middle of town.

You won’t find much in the way of souvenirs here–it’s primarily a local morning market rather than tourist market.
