Nightmarket Shopping

A exotic oriental tropical market with fruits and flowers

The night bazaars are all open air and real old fashioned oriental style where they cook the food in front of you in a pan or BBQ. 

The interesting thing is, most fruits are produced locally in the highland of Shan State that is around Inle Lake. The climate there is somehow like central and western Europe which brings almost all tempered climate fruits and flowers to bloom.

That comes to the strange situation that in Thailand they import them from Australia, Europe, US etc. and the same grows just across the border since Mae Sot etc. is not far at all. But the problem is it is more difficult to travel from the Thai border to Yangon as from Bangkok to New York (yes no yoke) this is ASEAN in real time, wont matter what the politicians tell they always want to whitewash their lies.
