“A little unnerving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

We walked down to the house and there were quite a large number of soldiers stationed around there whih I found a bit menacing.

“Hoping all goes well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2012

All we did was a slow drive by, there seems to be a lot of barbed wire etc. I can quite honestly say I fell in love with the people of this country and I just hope that whatever changes take place here it is done peacefully and without any damage to these lovely people.

“Get your taxi to drive past on the way to/from the airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

Not much to actually see apart from a high wall and a few NLD posters, but still worth it to get a glimpse of this iconic place. Just a short detour on the way to town from the airport. We were really surprised at the lack of military or police and amazed that we could stop and take a photo.

“Can't see it, but could feel the history”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2012

It's true that all we could see was the wall, but we wanted to drive by anyway. Our sweet guide cautioned that even one photo could cause her to be in trouble so our cameras weren't out. This is an exciting time with all the promise of change in Myanmar due to "The Lady". We saw posters and t-shirts with her photo in many spots around Yangon.

“A must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2012

I admire this lady, during the time I visited the road was unblocked and open for normal traffic. It is a piece of history to see this house and the spot she gave speeches to her people.
