This spot used to be heavily surveiled, or guarded, or even kept off limits to rubberneckers. Now you can selfie there all you want, but there is nothing to see.

After seeing the house so many times in the news, it was surreal to see it in real life. You can't go in. Our driver drove past it and i quickly snapped a pix. It's along a really busy road.

Nothing interesting - it was nothing but fences and exterior of a heavily guarded house. Would have been nice if able to take a look inside.

Knowing of the importance, history and fame of Aung San Suu Kyi i was looking forward to see the place where she was held for so many years. Very big disappointment: we saw nothing but a closed gate, that's it. Pure loss of time.

This had been built up by our tour guide as a must do, so off we set in 34c on a busy dusty road, only to see a big gate😢 Oh well, at least we saw where history was made, or near it anyway!

Having been told that we would be able to see Aung San Suu Kyi's house from the roadside, all we actually saw was a very high fence, a steel gate and a security guard. Don't waste your time.

The park is lovely but all you see is the gate as illustrated in this picture, and she no longer lives there.

Aung San Suu Kyi House is a historical site, where Aung San Suu Kyi was house-arrested. You can however just see the entrance gate and cannot get inside. Security guards were watching. So, I didn't take a picture. Anyway, in my opinion it is not...More
