Not very near to city center, I forgot how long my journey from Yangon to there. But it's not too far, less than 1 hour drive, maybe 30 minutes.

The compound is very big, wasting time if you walk, rent a bicycle at the entrance, they count by hour and I think 2-3 hours is enough.

There is a hall there, if you are lucky they have some event there, cultural. Dancing, singing...

The village is actually built for tourist to have a look at all the significant landmark of different races in Myanmar instead of traveling the whole country. They build artificial, models, miniature Golden Rock, Pagoda, Heart shape waterfall and village houses.

Every houses represent one race of the Myanmar Union, most of the houses they have stall for souvenir and snacks.

National races village is in Tharketa Township, on the left of the Yangon Thanlyin Bridge. You will not only enjoy fresh air blowing across the Bago River but also get the sense of Union of Myanmar Spirit from the villages of national brethren, Kachin, Kayah, Kayin, Chin, Bamar, Mon, Rakhine and Shan. There you will find traditional Myanmar races homes, customs, souvenir shops and Replicas of great monuments of Myanmar. If you are trying to kill some time you might consider a visit. Climbing the tower is all steps so if you are limited in mobility you won't be able to make it to the top. I'd say it is more for the bus type of of tourist.

A fascinating place where the various ethnic minority races of Myanmar are show cased. Each race has a traditional village ethnic timber house complete with utensils and furniture and photos together with different costumes and informative write ups. Good idea to rent bicycles to tour the places and the park has sprawling grounds. Many local small vendors sell local fruits and drinks. The best and most simple way to experience the various ethnic cultures. Definitely worth visiting. Highly recommended

This is definitely not a popular tourist attraction, but a local gem regardless. It’s a huge park, takes about 2-3 hours to walk around, there’s a performance center in front, tall tower in the center where you can see the different tribes and basic artifacts, and a nice big lake with simulated homes of different national tribes all around. Entrance fee is 3000 MMK for foreigners.

This place is a little bit out of town and Locals might not go often but they should because all the 8 ethnicity, their clans and how they live and what they use are well show cased with the good shades to sit and talk with friends or family while admiring the beauty of different cultures. I always recommend to my friends coming from abroad. You can take bus from Sule and it's not that far from downtown. They have entrance fee but not expensive. You can rent a bicycle and cycle around the houses. You can also see the sunset from the river side. There are also restaurants.

Paid 12,500kyats for the car and 3 of us to enter and we were expecting some ethnic tribal villages set-up but were very disappointed to find just houses that are suppose to represent the 10main ethnic groups in Myanmar. Nothing much different between them and some replicas of monuments found in the various states eg. Golden Rock of Mon State. There were some young people manning a shop located in each of the house but they basically sold the same commercial items. Such a pity cos huge potential. Other than that its just a park with lakes and a pagoda where you can climb up to get a view of Yangon.

Not mentioned much get a taxi to this peaceful large park area. Within the grounds are the many houses built in the tribal style (each with a typical shop as well) You can walk round or hire a bike or there are small trucks to take you.
We paid 3000 kyat entry and did go with loads of kids from an orphanage who enjoyed the good playground!
Well worth half a day here but also make sure you can get a taxi back as there did seem to be many around.

Hidden down in Thaketa Township, a 15 minute taxi from Downtown, this place has so much going for it but isn't really publicized. 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 a playground for the kids if they get bored, and a few lakes scattered around where you can sit and feed the geese. It is really shaded and is a great place to spend the day in peace and quiet...take a picnic lunch or go to the restaurants on site.

It is actually is a good place to learn about Myanmar culture of every state but need more improvement on maintenance and hygiene. Also need more english language translated signage and scriptures.

It is similar to Sarawak Cultural Village in Malaysia. The place shows the different cultures from different tribe. Visiting the place is easy with public transport like bus, no4 or no31. Would suggest to cover the place with rental bicycle which cost 500MMK for an hour. 2 hours should be enough for the place. Get there early and you can head back to city center by 1pm.
