“i didnt go”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

I chose not mto go and i don't know how to write a comment here on somehting I asked and enquired about but from several local sources I am told the surrounding business a petrol station near by are staffed by the military who will record the rego number of taxi drivers who drop you at the house at the risk of getting the drivers into trouble. What ever you do don't compromise the the locals who mean to do well and may not realise they are at risk. I wanted to go and lay flowers but all that symbolism is undone if it gets your driver into trouble. I gather there is a restaurant nearby where you can have a coffee walk past and get picked up down the street but if in anyway it lets a local get into trouble. I wore my NLD t-shirt which was spotted at distance across markets and temples and locals would tell me I can wear that and thankyou but we can't.

“Just had to go and see it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Of course you can't go in, but even just to drive past and see the gates where so many historical events have taken place, was a highlight

“Worth the Glimpse!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

You only get to see a security wall and a small house behind it, plus the photo of "The Lady"'s father on the gate, from whom she has her inspiration. Worth the 5 minutes for anyone interested in Myanmar's history.

“gate”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

You can only see the gate unless you get a pass in advance.I thought I'd see her house. It was well guarded.

“Nothing much to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Other than the historical and political significance of the tenants of this house, its just another house, fenced and barbed wire round. But well, we just had to take a pic in front of it.
