Spend some time surrounded with innumerable diverse plants at People's Square and Park. The complex features two parts: a square covering 28.4 hectares (70.3 acres), and a park spreading across 26.5 hectares (65.4 acres). This leaves plenty of room for family picnics, walking paths, sport courses, and festival venues. The site also draws artists, who come to find inspiration, create, and sell their works. Walk around and enjoy the views of over 130 species of trees, and about 17,000 different flowers arranged into colorful and scenic gardens.

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.
