Myanmar has 135 tribes in 8 different ethnic groups and to understand the country, it is necessary to get some understanding of the similarities and differences of those groups. After doing some reading, this is the place to go to help it all to register. The village is a collection of houses created in the traditional style of the various... More

You can catch a bus that leaves Sule Pagoda which takes an hour but we chose to take a taxi. The vast area of the attraction was daunting in the heat so we rented an old open-air bus to take us around (900 Khat). There are 8 villages represented with each having basically the same house with very little in... More

The different states and cultures of Burma is brought together here, although of course you cannot really tell a culture from just looking at still props, costumes and replicas of their homes. For those on a time "budget", this is one stop you could try to get the most out of your trip, because you definitely cannot finish visiting all... More

We were able to take a golf cart with a driver. An hour rent is not enough. It's worth seeing. It gives you an idea what the different cultures dress like and how they live

This was interesting for an hour visit but it wasn't that big a deal for me. What made it most interesting was that it was narrated by a local friend so I felt I got the most detailed information.

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...
