Obviously remarkable historical place for Myanmar but it is located on a busy road and all you can see is a gate. If you are in the area, pass by, but I wouldnt go out of my way to see it.

Keeping in mind you will not be able to enter the premises, it is worth to have the taxi driving you there, letting you get off (pulling past the house!!!!) and take pictures, after you ask permission to the guard, with his gun well visible. Have the taxi waiting for you, since all will take minutes. To think Aung San... More

We wanted to see the house where Aung San Suu Kyi is staying. Moreover, our visit was just after she was elected in. We were hoping to catch a glimpse of her, should she happen to leave or arrive home. However, we heard that she was in Naypyidaw for parliament meeting. We just had a quick photo shoot and left.

Passing by many times and found nothing special to see. The only time a bit different was before the Presidential Election, a lot of people were dancing and a few were singing with loudspeakers.

If you have not followed her story this may not mean much to you but if you have seen the movie or simply want to know where she spent 18 years of her exile, then you will just want to see where this happened.

Part of the modern history of Burma.You can only drive past the gates but our taxi driver tried to get us inside by buzzing the intercom...understandably the lady had more important matters to deal with. We stopped at the party headquarters where we were able to buy all sorts of party stickers and memorabilia.

Well I pass her house on many occasions but there is no way you can go into the house. All you see the gate where she made her speeches. Hope it will be open for public like where she grew up & which is now a Museum Bogy Aung San Museum. Which very interesting to know about her late father

51, University Avenue. There's not much to see, just a couple of NLD flags, and no more police presence as things are turning around. Of course you will not see Daw Suu around at all. This is a historical place to gain an understanding of what it means to spend a quarter of a century under house arrest. One can... More

Taken to this location to see where AungSan Suu Kyi was under house arrest for 22 years. Not any thing to see apart from a solid gate. A photo stop only
