“A good walk across the lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

The park itself is a little scruffy in places but the boardwalk across/along the lake is a nice respite from the traffic and craziness of the city.

“Grand lake view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

It is near shwedagon pagoda in Yangon and traffic is quite busy and noisy when we were walking in the park. It may be quieter if you walk more inside the park and sit somewhere by the lake. It has excellent view of the Royal lake, Karawaik hall and nearby Shwedagon Pagoda. A nice place to visit when you are in Yangon. There are several nice restaurants in the vincinity. We went in to the Kandawgyi Palace Hotel to have a drink at the pool side bar and enjoyed the view.

“Kandawgyi Park: An invitation to meditation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Just a little away from Shwedagon Temple, you'll find Kandawgyi Park and Lake. An oasis of peace in the middle of busy Yangon. The Park is a well-known area for locals, who like to picnic on its lawns and gardens, mainly on weekends. It has been privatized recently, being clean and well kept. Visiting the park may be a good option after sightseeing Shwedagon magnificent temple, a masterpiece of Buddhist architecture and faith. Enjoy the park and try to meditate in this pleasant environment.
