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.

  • Picturesque and relaxing place to unwind amongst the city's hustle and bustle and recommended to go across to the floating restaurant for a unique dining experience  more »
  • Not bad but nothing more. A relaxing ride makes good tjs. Do not be blinded by the building on the Lake, it's beautiful but this n ' is that a restaurant

  • Here, you can make a nice walk along the Lake and escape the hustle and bustle of Yangon. The bridge is partially something adventurous. ;-) It is especially beautiful in the evening sun, the Karaweik Palace Shimmers then also particularly beautiful.

  • Calm environment with lots of space and freedom. Several good restaurants around. Perfect for Hangouts
  • 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.
  • Very good public place for picnic with your family. There has lots of restaurant around the Shaw.
  • Nice place to enjoy food e.g. KoKant food and walk around

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.
