An interest in foreign-made goodies started the formerly popular market Burma Bazaar, a treasure house for DVDs, perfumes and tech products. Though the market is lackluster now, it still makes for a good walk to see if you might find something interesting from across the borders.

Used to be a good place to shop for movie CDS and electronic goods.. but now with the rise in online shopping the prices don't seem very competitive.. also one must be careful while visiting this place and could get easily cheated with inferior products..

A best place to get cheapest electronic products without bill; But you have to be cautious since there can be fake products and you can get cheated. You can get Korean, Chinese and non-standard products at a cheaper price without any bill.
