Chinlone Books Opening Hours

 Chinlone Books is open every day of the week,

The new Mandalay branch is usually open from 9:00 in the morning until 9:00 pm (21:00), and sometimes later. Please phone ahead if you are planning to visit: 097-9782-7729  or 099-7811-8894.

The Nyaung Shwe shop is usually from 8:00 in the morning until 8:00 (20:00) at night. During peak tourist seasons, however, we may stay open later at night, but don't expect to be buying books at midnight. Hey, we have to sleep too!

Although we try to open the shop every day of the year, there may be times when we have to temporarily close. In Nyaung Shwe especially, Mar Mar Aye is very busy and there will be times when she has to close the shop to run errands in town or to visit her daughter in nearby Taunggyi. We will make every effort to keep the bookshop open when she is away but there may be times when you find the shop closed for a few hours. We apologize in advance.
