Before you buy this knife I would recommend you check with the airline that you have booked your trip with, whether you will be allowed to bring it on the plane. Airlines have got ever so security minded of late.
Good luck with the search.

"dha" can buy at any pagodas.However quality will not be so good. Inle is one of the famous place to buy too.

I see in your question: you want to buy a myanma dha (knife) in Rangoon.
If this is a case, here some options:
1. At Shwedagone Pagoda (North), there you can buy myanma shan dha. but need local contact to get a real one.
2. In a market called "Than Zay", there you can find different kinds of knife for kitchen
3. At Scott Market, you could find knifes with different quality and those are good for decoration
If you need more information, let me know.

Travel Tips for Rangoon

For more western things

by Mique

If you have been traveling around Burma for a while you might find that you are in dire need of some more western things. Yoghurt, milk, cheese, chocolate, pringles and what -not. There is a decent size of that on offer (for Burmese standards) at the City Mart supermarkets. And these supermarkets are dotted around town. One of those is when you follow Sule Pagoda Rd across the railway tracks and then on your right-hand side. The one in Yankin centre is bigger but for that you need to hire a taxi from downtown (1500 -2000 ks one way). Most of the time those supermarkets have milk, cheese and stuff like that. But brands can be completely sold out and things like yoghurt can really be a hit-and-miss affair (same with cheese).

The 2 branches of the city mart that i just mentioned (there are more but i've never been to those) have also a Seasons bakery next to them. Here you can get very decent sandwiches, bread and other goodies. They will not have any other breads than white breads though

Myanmar Gong

by herzog63

I saw these hanging in peoples homes and gardens and only saw people gonging them a couple of times and never asked anyone about them so I don't really have much to explain. I thought they were cool though.

stroll along the streets in...

by Krystynn

stroll along the streets in the city center. What you'd probably notice are the relatively few high buildings in this city... and hardly any traffic congestions. And the vehicles on the roads are from the 1950s and 1960s (the vehicle model, I mean)... with some even dating to as far back as the 1940s! Only recently have imports of second-hand vehicles from Japan been allowed.

Danaka Paste

by kenmerk

When you arrive in Yangon, you will notice that all of the girls, and a lot of the kids are wearing this yellow paste smeared on their faces in different patterns. It is called Danaka, and is used as something of a sun block against the strong tropical sun in Burma... It's made from powder ground up from one of the local trees...
