It's about 3000 kyats to enter. but then you can't really walk around that vast acreage under the scorching sun.They have scooters which are 4000 kyats per person but there are no helmets. the open vans are a better option for big groups and its 8000 kyats for a van. pretty educational but not the best looked after. lots of...

Was brought here on a tour. Perhaps it was the weather, but we were not keen to walk the grounds due to the scorching heat. Bring some iced drinks before you venture here as there is no shade. And only if you are dying to see "houses" and parks.

A supposed to be relaxing place for families and young children is now spoiled due to some inappropriate couples making out in public only covered by umbrellas. But anyway, they have this bicycle rent place if you decided to ignore those couples and enjoy yourself by riding around the place.

Set on a fairly large block of land, it has the 7 main ethnic groups represented by traditional houses etc, and all of the people who work in the houses/displays are actually from that group. There is... More

Visited on a weekday morning.The place is pretty deserted save for a few local couples. Was expecting some locals from the respective tribes to introduce their cultures but none; contrary to what is shown on the brochures provided. Overall quite a serene visit to spend a morning.
