Kalaw – 5 Day Market
We were lucky enough to be visiting Kalaw during one of their “5 Day Markets”. As our tour guide explained, the local market is held everyday but there are special days (rotates every 5 days) where people from all of the surrounding villages come to trade there goods (such as fruits and vegetables, fresh tea leaves and hand-made crafts).
With all of the different surround ethnic cultures present, this market was a real treat and probably one of the more interesting markets we have ever visited. Another thing that was interesting to see was all of the unique clothing styles (especially the women’s colorful tribal headdresses).
