Kandawgyi lake is a great escape from the traffic and noise of Yangon. We had some free time and decided to dedicate part of it to exploring the green side of the city.
The park itself is very lush and offers some great views of Shwedagon Pagoda. However, I would have enjoyed it more if it had more sitting options than just the plain, natural ground.
The spot is also very popular with young inamorati so if you are not into the mood of seeing romantic scenes every meter I would suggest going elsewhere 😀
Kandawgyi lake is located east of Shwedagon Pagoda. A taxi ride from Sule Pagoda costed us 1500 Kyat.
Nice to see but not essential.
