Click on title to view photo in large format: Chilies and spices of all kinds are sold at the Dala market, located across the river from downtown Yangon, Myanmar. The village of Dala is accessed by a pair of ferries that run continuously throughout the day, with the trip taking about 15 minutes. Upon arrival, any of the dozens of rickshaw drivers will be happy to take you on a tour of the market and a few homes where local handicrafts and food items are produced. The ferry costs pennies, and a rickshaw tour of two or so hours can be arranged for about $5 per person. This was just one of many magical sights seen during my Myanmar Explorer Cruise/Tour with Viking River Cruises.

  1. Enjoying your blogs, typo “you om a tour”, cheers 🙂

    • Thanks little chicken – I corrected the typo and appreciate the heads up. So glad you enjoy my blog.

  2. There’s something about markets, especially spice markets, that’s magical. I wish we had one where I live.

    • Hi Sarah: I feel the same way. Markets just attract me like a magnet.
