Really have fun for the kids. They asked to send them again to that place. You can pack you launch boxes or you can buy the foods at there. There are many shops (Burmese foods like tea leaves salads, Mont Hyin Garr) in front of Cemetery. Overall this is a nice place to go for a picnic. And you can... More

Beautifully maintained, sombre reminder of past sacrifices - not somewhere to spend a lot of time perhaps, but somewhere to remind us of a horrific times now thankfully in the past

The grounds are beautiful and well kept but unfortunately the locals are hanging around smoking, eating and playing music. It's hard to appreciate it for what it is when you're dodging groups of teenagers. I've written to the group responsible for maintaining it and they are aware of the situation and are working on trying to restore it to what... More

The second time I've visited the war cemetery and I am always blown away by how well kept it is, how peaceful it is in the middle of a busy city and also how poignant it is. A real tribute to the men who gave their tomorrow for our today.

This was a very poignant experience for me having heard about the tremendous losses during my childhood from my parents. Walking through the rows of graves reading the inscriptions and seeing the ages of these young men in their twenties who never saw their homelands again was very sad one grave bore my fathers old regiment The Royal Artillery,but they...

A serious place but loads of couples and young children. Well maintained- people buried from all religion - muslims in the left side and christians and Jews in the centre. Muslims on left because of burial custom of direction towards Mecca.

Evocative and sobering. Most of those remembered were killed when in their 20s if not younger. The cemetery is well kept and designed, not a detour as it's on the way to Bago.

Lesson learn about the war. War separated the families. Whenever, I visit there it is so sad two brothers who were 21 and 22 years old were dead in WWII. I cannot imagine for there mom.

If you are passing or staying in Yangon this is defo worth a visit. It's not very big so you will only need an hour. The gardens are well maintained and it's worth the walk around the gardens. There are seven VCs at the cemetery and I managed to find them all. It's appear to be a local meeting place... More
