“Stunning”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

I've been here 3 times for the past 3 years, however, i have not captured any chances to have a taste of food inside since its not quite recommended by the local friends. I am quite impressive with the lavish architectures and outdoor performance they offer. Since there are not many attractions in the town, you should ponder to drop by and have a hour of venture.

“Viewed from outside”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

I was short of time in Yangon so I paid the park entrance and walked the lovely grounds, the lake and the gardens. The palace is beautiful and the whole building was gilded with gold about 20 years ago and bus loads of tourists were here.

“Karaweik Weak?”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

Well, what can I say but that it's a real tourist trap with very average food for this "dinner and culture show". The show itself though, is pretty darn good, I must admit. I don't where else to get the show w/o the food, but I am sure somebody on Trip Adviser does.

“Interesting”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

On the edge of Kandawgyi Lake sits this concrete representation of a royal barge. The nightly tourist cultural dinner show is interesting. The meal is a buffet which is mediocre at best and it is advisable to get there early before the hoards of tourist buses whose passengers decend on the buffet like locusts. It means sitting around for a little time before the show but it is worth it not to be jostled by the "never-had-a-meal-in-my-life" tourists. Drinks are expensive although beer is a good alternative.
It is also advisable to get a seat near the front on one of the small tables so you can see the show. The bused tourists are forever running up to the front to take countless photographs.
