Best Picnic place in town
Jun 2019
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.

National Races Show Case
Feb 2020 • Family
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

Simulated homes!
Feb 2020 • Solo
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.

A place to know more different race of Myanmar. Although most of the description are in Burmese, the houses are nice to have a look. Children maybe bored about the houses but there are some children playground. Also can rent bike and enjoy an afternoon (if not raining).

Myanmar Cultural Races Village

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.

A big parkland, nothing special
Mar 2019 • Couples
We went out of our way to get here because after the reviews i expected it to be like functioning villages with folks in local attire doing there daily routines and selling items unique to their culture. My expectations were wrong. Its a big parkland with houses in the design of various indigenous tribes. No tribal folks present. Small shops selling all the usual bric a brac, nothing unique. The place is huge you can rent a bike, take a buffalo art, or like us take a golf art with driver for 10,000 kyat per hour. There also some reproductions of famous Burma attractions like the golden mount. We did not see any food concessions. I read somewhere that they do have a cultural show on Sunday afternoons. Unless you are really into this kind of stuff its OK to miss it.

Not tourist-friendly
Oct 2018 • Solo
I was brought here by a taxi driver when my original destination was closed due to the public holiday. So with zero expectations, I entered this village with no idea what I was getting myself into. I was seriously the only tourist in the sea of locals. There were a couple of exhibition halls with artifacts and paintings etc. Would have been great if more explanations were provided. I left the place after about 30 minutes. Probably best if you can go with a guide.

I like it...
Sep 2018 • Family
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.

Kitschy kitschy koo.

Was wondering why there were so many people sitting under umbrellas. Turned out they were couples on a date. What should be a family outing could end up being R-rated.
