Its a place of sadness and yet so glad I visited. Many young soldiers lost there lifes it is a prestine with well looked after grounds. A few Aussies where to be found amongst these soldiers.

A War Cemetery can be an immensely moving interruption in the joy of doing all the touristy things one does, and hence it becomes all the more memorable, and worthwhile in retrospect. Burma surely must have been one of the last places on earth to...More

Large wel kept CWGC WW11 Cemetery with nearly 30,000 graves. Really shows the wide diversity of troops in the British 14th "Forgotten" Army under General Bill Slim.

Good to stop off on the way to Bago. It breaks up the journey. Well kept cemetery. Make sure you look through the visitors books.

This place is very well maintained and honors those soliders who died defending Burma. There are both names of Burmese as well as English. Nice place to stop and remember.

I am pretty surprised with such a high ranking of this memorial. With all respects to fallen heroes, I don't consider it a must do thing in Yangon. Moreover, it's not in Yangon, but in it's greater area, in the outskirts. You'll need 45-60 min...More

Sorry for late reply. Yes, main building is under refurbishment. It might take even longer than 27 December. But if you request to the staff on site, you may allow into the building at lunch break (between 12:00-1:00 pm).

We rented a van. It's about over an hour drive. I think the registry is being kept by the Commonwealth War Graves in London.
