Very well maintained war cemetery by the Burmese people tending the complex. I was very disappointed to see on the Sunday that we visited that the local Burmese people who had come to the cemetery in their droves have little or no regard for the...More

Its a place of sadness and yet so glad I visited. Many young soldiers lost there lifes it is a prestine with well looked after grounds. A few Aussies where to be found amongst these soldiers.

A War Cemetery can be an immensely moving interruption in the joy of doing all the touristy things one does, and hence it becomes all the more memorable, and worthwhile in retrospect. Burma surely must have been one of the last places on earth to...More

Good to stop off on the way to Bago. It breaks up the journey. Well kept cemetery. Make sure you look through the visitors books.

It is alike a great landscaped park with colonial design looking from afar. Rest in peace for those who sacrificed their lives defending Burma against Japanese occupation. It is a respected burial ground for approximately 30,000 war time heroes. For tourists, it is a stopover...More

This place is very well maintained and honors those soliders who died defending Burma. There are both names of Burmese as well as English. Nice place to stop and remember.

This is a well maintained war cemetary, but dont expect any explanatory information on site. It is about 20 minutes north of the airport, so you might stop there if you are travelling to or from Yangon by road, or if you have a long...More

The cemetery lies about 40 mins north of the centre of Rangoon near to the airport. Any easy bus or taxi ride. It has recently been refurbished and looks wonderful. Well maintained lawns and memorials and planting of local plants reminiscent of English gardens. There...More

I am pretty surprised with such a high ranking of this memorial. With all respects to fallen heroes, I don't consider it a must do thing in Yangon. Moreover, it's not in Yangon, but in it's greater area, in the outskirts. You'll need 45-60 min...More

Sorry for late reply. Yes, main building is under refurbishment. It might take even longer than 27 December. But if you request to the staff on site, you may allow into the building at lunch break (between 12:00-1:00 pm).
