  • This is inside Kandawgyi Lake Pyin Oo Lwin. Nice place to hang out with ur family & friends. Worth a try.  more »
  • More q' a garden, I would say a great botanical park perfectly maintained. A nice place for a nice quiet and pleasant walk.

  • Title says it all. Not worth the entrance fee. Besides in the weekend there was a singer performing with a really horrible voice. Not really the quiet walk in nature that we expected..  more »
