Yangon has a few incredible parks. Kandawgyi Park is by far the most spectacular. This spot is an excellent place for a sunrise or sunset. You will often see locals and expats here, sitting on blankets chatting away. It is an ideal place to escape the chaos of the city. The park itself is beautiful, with a view of the Shwedagon Pagoda, people watching, dragon boats, and fantastic walks.

If you're in need of an escape from the noise and fast pace of Yangon, a relaxing few hours in this park is a great way to do it.

If you're looking for some respite from the hustle and bustle of downtown Yangon, head on over to this lovely park and stroll about the park and around the lake.

Peaceful and green, Kandawgyi Park is the ideal place to go in Yangon to escape the city. For 1,000 kyat (50p) a person, it's not bad. The park is popular with local joggers and serves as a hangout for young romantic couples who can be seen huddled together across the green shaded slopes. There is a huge lake named "the great royal lake" in Burmese, and is located about 10 minutes walk from the famous Shwedagon Pagoda. The park complex also encompasses a zoo, an aquarium, and an amusement park, and in the evenings, it's a great place to go and experience the peace of the boardwalks or the folk dancing and joyful music in the park restaurants.

The Central Park of Myanmar! Although not nearly as big as Central Park and Kandawgyi Park is more of a lake than anything else, I loved it as much as Central Park. There is a wooden bridge built around the lake, so you meander around the lake and take in the amazing views. The lake is incredibly peaceful and equally romantic. While I was walking around I saw many young Burmese couples sitting on the grass and benches around the lake. Monks also frequent the park (which I captured in the picture above). There are a few nice restaurants just outside the park, that you can eat at after your stroll.
