“lovely place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

A lake in the middle of the city surrounded by extensive greenery, massive trees and accessible wia a pier which goes around the whole lake. This is a great place for jogging, relaxing and food ( there are some nice but expensive restaurants around ). They charge always entrance fees for entering the area and on every corner of the lake you have to pay again ( only for foreigners ), as far as I remember I spent around 5 US to get around the lake but it is definitely worth it. Be carefull if walking, the pier is old and even if they marked rotten planks with white crosses they never changed them.

“Kandawgyi Park: An invitation to meditation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Just a little away from Shwedagon Temple, you'll find Kandawgyi Park and Lake. An oasis of peace in the middle of busy Yangon. The Park is a well-known area for locals, who like to picnic on its lawns and gardens, mainly on weekends. It has been privatized recently, being clean and well kept. Visiting the park may be a good option after sightseeing Shwedagon magnificent temple, a masterpiece of Buddhist architecture and faith. Enjoy the park and try to meditate in this pleasant environment.
