Kandawgyi Park, Yangon (Rangoon)

3.6
#1 of 12 in Parks in Yangon (Rangoon)
A popular outing spot for locals with plenty of shady trees, Kandawgyi Park provides water and greenery in downtown Yangon. Join the locals with a picnic or a leisure walk among the well-manicured gardens. In the middle of the 110 hectare (272 acre) grounds lies a lake with a circumference of 8 km (5 mi). Stroll across the long wide boardwalk over the water to admire water lilies, a family of black swans, and the iconic gilt royal barge--now a classy floating restaurant. Some street vendors sell refreshments. The park is a popular venue for concerts.

    Nice Park for a ride, but avoid the hottest hours. It has wooden bridges over the Lake which looks like that they will be descalabrar, haha.

    among concrete jungle city lifestyle, the rarest treasure place with Greens and lush space, a good place to jogging and outbound.

    Park needs maintenance. Great views but some infrastructures have been neglected for so long. Don’t walk on those wooden walkways. Other than these, great escape from the exhausted cramped city life here.

Where to stay in Yangon (Rangoon)

It can be difficult to find decent budget accommodations in Yangon, especially downtown, where rooms are usually small and booked months in advance. Look farther away from the city center for cozier budget options, often with complimentary breakfast included. The Kandawgyi lakeside features a number of high-end establishments.
