Kandawgyi Lake

At the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we are already enjoying to the fullest a luxury summer in Southeast Asia in the Mediterranean. Today we are travelling to Myanmar to cool ourselves off in the famous Kandawgyi Lake. Are you coming?

Kandawgyi Lake, literally “great royal lake”, is one of the two major lakes in Yangon. This artificial lake is one of the most beautiful ones in the area, ideal to get away from the routine of the biggest city of the country. It is considered one of the main tourist attractions in Southeast Asia.

Kandawgyi Nature Park, a zoo and Karaweik Hall are some of the wonders surrounding the lake. The famous Karaweik Hall has become one of Kandawgyi Lake´s symbols. This is a beautiful gold construction, which was built as a replica of the royal barges the ancient kings of Myanmar used to move through the rivers across the city. When the night goes down, the building is lighten up making a lovely postcard that attracts thousands of travellers to the area.

During the month of November, Kandawgyi Lake becomes the meeting point of Yangon. The lake is the scene of the annual traditional boat races, where teams from all over the country participate.
