Authentic cultural show with some funny parts. Best go early and pick from the burmese food section. Location filled up fast as its the only dining with show in Yangon.

The Karaweik Palace is a huge floating restaurant that can be found in Kandawgyi Lake. Built as a replica of the Burmese Royal Barge, the Karaweik palace has an impressive architecture and is fully painted in gold.

Tourists and locals looking for a fine dining experience in Yangon usually come here for buffet dinner and live entertainment. The performers showcase traditional music and dance from the different tribes across the country. By local standard the cost (US $25) could be pricey.

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.

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.
