We really liked it here. its amazing to see the wood being carved. and I also played with the pet dogs in the store.

My sister and I each got a bagan princess and a mandalay princess wood carvings. Staff were lovely and we even got a lovely puppet too. Would recommend.

I was bought by my tour guide on way to Amarapura. It is a shop with artisans prepares various kinds of handicrafts like decorative clothes and wooden carvings. The salespeople do not pressure you. Their prices seemed reasonable compared to what my hotel gift shop had. Since, the products are higher end, you may have to shell out some money. I purchased a small sandalwood figurine. The item seemed genuine and since the shop is family owned and in business for a while, I trusted the genuineness of the item. The shop sells bigger items, perhaps it is more for the local market. They only accept Visa cards and you can bargain a bit on the price.

Definitely the options are more here, but the price is too high and a little unjustified. Also a little amused to see ivory sculptures being sold openly here.

After seeing a number of smaller wood shops and wood sculpture vendors, it seems clear that the quality and authenticity of the work at Aung Nan is excellent. The shop has been in business for 80 years and has an incredible selection of significant works. It’s not the place to go if you’re looking for $2 trinkets: many of these are heirloom pieces. The staff was very hands off and patient, yet available to answer my questions—no constant sales pressure. They are very experienced in shipping large items. As for price, their asking prices seem in line with the market, and they were willing to discuss discounts—for me the end prices were well worth the items I got.

I was looking for older stuff, even used would be nice and they have mainly new and fresh stuff. Don't get me wrong, they have tons of stuff esp with word and all but felt very foreign and western oriented. Their prices for most items are very expensive too but then again I live here long term so their prices is more geared towards casual and one time tourist. Good quality but if you intend to dig and look for messy and old stuff, go for Soe Moe

This is a shop but it is also a workshop and it was fascinating to see the quality of the work - mainly wood carving and tapestry - as it was being made as well as the finished products. There was no hard sell. And health and safety laws do not exist.

This handicraft workshop is the real deal, selling well made wood carvings, elaborate beaded embroidery, traditional puppets and even has a little ivory carving section to round things out. The craftsmanship on much of the work is very high quality, particularly on the embroidery. The woodwork is a bit of a mixed bag - some are lacquered, some are natural wood, some are layered in gold leaf and others are just tacky. But if one thing can be said it's that there's something for everyone here. All the artwork here ranges from small to massive in size. The pickings are slim on the small to medium range as that's what most tourists go for I'm sure. The embroidered work is available as wall hangings, pillow cases, wallets, table runners, etc., while the woodwork is mainly wall panels and statuary. All in all, the workmanship here is high quality; the craftsmen and women can be seen producing works on site while you shop around. This shop produces unique and lovely items, making it a great spot to purchase a piece (or two) of well-crafted artwork.
