Kandawkyi Park & Karaweik Palace
Surrounding the serene, color changing Kandawkyi Lake is the beautifully kept Kandawkyi Park with beautiful flora, verdure, and wooden bridges for a relaxing break from the bustling city streets. It is a popular recreation zone for locals, encompassing a children play-ground, mini zoo, souvenir shops and many restaurants. Sitting on the edge of the lake with the Shwedagon Pagoda in the backdrop, a gold plated structure in the shape of the mythical creature, Karaweik, appears as if it is setting off to sail. Enjoy the international buffet offered in this building while live performances from various cultural troupes put on a lively show.
