Burma Bazaar Overview

Ranked 37 of 516 sightseeing in Chennai

Burma Bazaar is a market in Chennai's Parry's Corner. Established in 1969, it is located just outside the Chennai beach railway station.

If shopping is high on your list of priorities, then this is a must visit area of Chennai. The Bazaar is an array of a few hundreds of shops that stretch along both sides of the road. These shops run by Burmese immigrants who fled Myanmar in the early sixties, are your best bet to buy almost everything for the family.

Tourists and natives throng this place alike as it houses a collection of shops with imported goods ranging from electronic to readymade gadgets and perfumes. They trade in almost all kinds of goods from plastic goods to textiles and stationery, and from ready-made garments to household items.

The biggest advantage of shopping from here is the price as imported goods and services are available at reasonable prices. Bargaining is a norm here. Therefore, you can buy goods at a price that is way below than what was originally quoted.

Reaching the Burma Bazaar is easy as it is well connected with other parts of Chennai by local transport modes.
