Fascinating to witness the extensive myriad of stalls,and the demarcation of burmese and chinese traders.The online camera on the counters said it all. The mass of pre cleaved stones,and the utilisation of left overs was interesting .Constant wetting and polishing,and searching for perfect matches.

I visited many times with friends but I fed up all the times due to a lot of red betel spit everywhere and dirty toilets. Actually their management took entry fees and tax from all shops. They had enough fund. But I saw every time...More
