An interesting nightly market on Mengpeng Lu is much better than the regular tourist market in the city center on Mengla Da Dao. Our favorite shops were located a bit farther out at Min Zu Gong Yi Ping Shi Chang (Minority Crafts Market) with the best of the bunch being the Xi Nan Min Zu Bu Luo (South West Minority Tribe Shop; tel. 0691/213-9650), where the owner travels extensively in the region carefully selecting Yi, Hani, and Jinuo handmade fabrics, clothes, and crafts.
