    Kandawgyi Palace Hotel


    I had a great experience at this hotel. It is situated right on beautiful Kandawgyi Lake with nice gardens and pool. The rooms have an exceptional view of the lake. High recommended and you can get great deals over the Internet.

    Hotel is good. On the shore of a lake. One side to the lake , other - to Shwedagon , it`s so beauty at night ! If you place on your room table or window-skill banana , very soon you can see squirrel , eating your refreshments.

    Directions: Shore of Kandawgyi Lake

    Burma's best lakeside resort


    Just great.
    Service is prompt and stewards and stewardesses are just too polite.
    Wooden flooring without carpets.

    Unique Quality: One can get a great massage-- mix of Myanmarese and Thai or anyone separately after a leg breaking walking tour of Shwedagon.
    Pool is three staged and has small flowers from the surrounding trees occassionally dotting the water.
    The pool overlooks the lake and has a great view.

    Directions: Downtown area and walking distance

    Comfort at the Lakeside


    Arriving in Yangon after spending a night in dull Singapore ( in transit from Siem Reap, eventhough we could have easily flown Siem Reap to Bangkok to Yangon without transiting in Bangkok.. next time), it was a welcome relief to spend the night at the Kandogyi palace Hotel situation right at the banks of the Lake, a few km north of the Bogyoke Market.
    Architecturally pleasing, Burmese style. The staff was very attentive and efficient.

    Unique Quality: Tranquil. Away from the noise of the city. Lakeside. Comfortable room. Price of about 50 usd very reasonable for this sort of accomodation

    The Best 5 Star in Asia


    This is surely the best 5 Star hotel in Asia, especially if you dislike the inhumanity of the usual hotel chains. It is built in traditional Burmese and English colonial style on the banks of the Royal Lake. The garden is a excellent maze of tropical plants and palm trees hiding winding foot paths.

    There is no better place to sprawl in a Rattan Chair with a gin&tonic and read Maugham and Orwell.

    Be sure to reserve in advance, outside of Rangoon, as the 'walk-in' price is twice as much.

    Unique Quality: A classic atmosphere without excessive decoration.
    Excellent French restaurant
    Spacious rooms built with tropical hardwood
    A gracious and helpful staff
    Close to the Shwedagon Pagoda and Ministry of Defense

    Directions: On the Royal Lake

Expats living in Yangon

by SnKapadia80

Are there any expats living in Yangon. I just moved here and would love to get in touch with people. Please contact me.

Re: Expats living in Yangon

There are indeed expats in Rangoon. Apart from the usual diplomatic and embassy crowd, there are businessmen and technician types. You will find far more Asian expats, especialy Chinese, than Western. I ran into two Frenchman flying for Myanmar Air and another working in the furniture industry. The nightclub at the Equatorial hotel is a favorite hang out of the expat crowd, as is the Sky Pub/Cafe at the Kandawgyi Palace Hotel on weekend evenings. My impression is that expat life is very lively.

By the way, I am very, very jealous of you. Burma is fantastic. I am a professional expat working the Middle East circuit and would give my left arm to find something in Burma. Alas, i am only a frequent visitor.
