“Delightful”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

We had two hours in the park and could happily have spent twice that long. It was so relaxing and peaceful to wander around the lake in the shade. Whilst we were in the aviary, three hornbills came down for fruit so we were able to take some great pictures and get really close to them. And outside we spotted 3 gibbons, one of which kindly posed for me, by hanging from the top of a tree in a star-jump position! A great visit.

“Nice Scenery”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

We enjoyed the butterfly display but got to it at the very end of our visit and they were closing. We had run out of time due to a late plane arrival

“One of the top five in Myanmar”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

We were very glad we made the time to travel to Pyin Oo Lwin and see this fabulous botantical garden, one of the best we've visited in a lifetime of travel around the world. We easily spent 2 hours here and still didn't see all the sights. Nicely laid out in different sections, it offers everything from orchids to giant bamboo, a rock garden, an aviary, and a charming boardwalk through marsh-loving plants. There's a good snack bar, too, where you can have a cold drink to keep up your energy.

“A good collection of trees (with labels!)”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

A very pleasant walk with well-laid out arrangements, clearly dating from former times but well maintained since. Don't bother with the pagoda - just enjoy the plants.

“Nice only if you have time and enjoy walking.”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

I took my group of 10 person but made the mistake of not making enough time to appreciate walking around the garden. The place is huge and you need a few hours minimum to walk around. The garden has been well maintained and also has a restaurant in the premises. Nice place for taking pictures.There is a US$5.- entrance fee for foreigners and also US$1.- for taking your camera in. The sign at the main entrance says 1,000.- Kyats (approx US$1.-) for locals, but they usually don't take money from locals.
