There is a Farmers Marjet on Saturday morning. Small and selling excellent products. Also visit the tribal shops for wonderful items - scarves and longis.

lake is just opposite the Pagoda. Huge lake with a nice walkers path and greenery. Plenty of lotus plants around. One can take a good walk around the lake.

A great park & lake to walk around. Takes a little over an hour to walk around. Many restaurants and bars as well as places of interest to see. Beats sitting in traffic.

It is unfortunate that the old teak walkway that circumnavigates the lake is now mostly closed due to disrepair. This was a great place to see the locals doing their exercises in the early mornings as well as for viewing vistas of the main attractions around the lake. Even though there has been some attempt at creating some new viewing decks at the eastern end of the lake - these aren't very stable and therefore not very suitable for photography.

On the map, Kandawgui Park looks like it should be an oasis in the middle of the city. It's not.

Five peninsulas stick into the lake, but they're not connected to each other, except around the perimeter (near the traffic on those big roads).

The park on the west, accessible off Bahan Road, is "finished" but small. There was no sign of the ticket taker to pay for entrance, but there's not much to recommend the park. South of that is another bit of finished park, featuring the only bridge that's not closed due to disrepair. If the sun is out, you'll get baked while strolling that bridge.

The two so-called parks on the north side, accessible off Nat Mauk St., are not parks at all. The first (nameless) one features shops for purchasing plants and songbirds. The second one, Bogyoke Park, has a statue of the Bogyoke (Aung San), but is otherwise a huge construction site for the new aquarium. There's a strange tower of what seems to be concrete stones. Very fake, but you can go 5 floors to the top by elevator for K200 to view the surroundings.

Overall, Kandawgui park was a disappointment. Pleasant strolls? Not so much.

Kandawgyi Park and Lake in Yangon is a very nice place to have quiet walk in the shaded tropical gardens around the lake or spend a relaxed couple of hours. It offers views of the Royal barge in the Lake as well as views of the nearby Shwe Dagon Pagoda

The park was just outside out hotel so we went to see it. It costs 300 to enter and another 500 if one wants to take photos. The park was off limits in many areas due to some dodgy bridge, which was a real
shame. Overall, it was ok.

This park requires you to get up early morning and spare as. Much time you can to walk.

There are so many meandering paths and each detour gives you a new breath taking experience.

It is place you need to discover at your own and at your own pace.

The boardwalk around the lake is one of the best experiences you can have in Yangon if you are in tune with nature, aesthetics and tranquil settings.

The only proviso is that I recommend going early in the morning or late in the afternoon close to sunset.

It is wonderful to see the local Myanmar exercising around the lake at these times. Many are out jogging, power-walking, stretching or doing various forms of tai-chi. Passing whole families out walking together on the boardwalk is a beautiful encounter.

As for myself, I enjoyed sitting on a lake side seat on the western side of the lake not far from the Signature restaurant. There I could gaze out over the lake and look back at the hotel and people passing along the teak boardwalk off in the distance.

It is an ideal place to find a spot for meditation, reflection or relaxation.

I would visit this place even for an hour if I had only 1 day in Yangon, such is the appeal of the place.

Activities sponsored by park authorities. Dance music and sports early morning before sun rise.
Evening before sunset nice to walk in this big park in the heart of town
