  • It's a pretty big lake just around the middle of the airport and downtown. There was a stayed hotel on this lake. I took a walk in the lake in the morning, but my heart settled on the greenery of the forest and the appearance of waterfowl. At the southeast end of the lake is the private residence, where Aung San Suu Kyi was under arrest, and is the landmark of the memorial photography.

  • Some new hotels overlook the lake, but it is still somewhere to get away from the congested traffic and people. A good place to walk and have a stretch.  more »

  • Half a Century back in 1960 this lake water used to be crystal clear fit enough to drink without even filtering. I had my own experience when I visited this lake on a days picnic from my School. I still remember to have collected water from this lake for drinking, with an aluminium vessel (No plastic period) for Drinking & Preparing Tea for the Picnic Team. II was just a boy of 9 years! We camped somewhat interior of the jutting land mass into the lake which looked almost like island. Old people of 50s & 60s can remember & confirm the purity of this lake in its natural appearance
  • Its a perfect place for a picnic with your family....and a lovely place for the lovers to enjoy the time with their partners.
