The most interesting part that there was a protest of locals. But place is quite dark so be sure that you could come before sunset.

After going around downtown Yangon on foot a traveller will simply get tired, this spot is precisely made for that! Here, under the shade of so many trees, one can simply relax and contemplate on the scenes of downtown Yangon. This is a perfect spot also for taking photos of Yangon City Hall, British Telegraph Office and Government Tower and... More

No entrance fee. It's a good place for you to take a rest after walking around the Yangon center. You can take photo with the monument and city hall. However, you can be disturbed by the fortune tellers or many postcard and coin seller. They will follow you and keep invite you to buy their items. There is one guy,... More

It's right in the center of the city. So it's worth going. The Independence Monument is situated in that park. You don't have to go into the park, you could just take a pic from the outside.

Next to the Sule pagoda, it is a nice spot when the temperature drops a bit in the afternoon, watch the world pass by, get a snack from some of the hundred foos stall, and relax in this cared area of Yangon.Avoid mornings and the hotter hours of the day as there isnt much shade around

But during afternoon there will be demonstration held by certain group towards acity Hall, demanding something that I don't understand as I don't speak Myanmar obviously. Also, there will be a lot of young... More

Beautiful park in downtown Yangon, it was established to commemorate independence from the British. Also the scene for protests against the military in the last few years. Very tidy with statues, fountains but not a lot of shade. Well worth a walk around.

The Maha Bandoola Garden is a lovely park located along the busy Maha Bandoola Street, just a short walk from the Sule Pagoda and behind the Yangon City Hall. It was around 4pm when I visited and though I read in the blogs that there is a small entrance fee to get inside I was surprised that we were able... More

After my walk to Sule Pagoda, I came across this lovely park with nice fountain so I decided to spend a little time here away from noisy traffic junction and crazy drivers. Nice picture opportunity here

This is a lovely little park in the middle of the city. A lot of families frequent it and the kids have a good time running around.
