Our friend acted as a guide and took us on a journey through the eight villages. The diversity is really amazing and revealing. It is sad though, to hear about how one race ruled and tormented the rest. Do try to get a guide as it really helped us to understand the history that shaped the current Myanmar.

This village area is large and nice to walk around but it's not very interesting if you are deciding between doing this and something else, I'd pick the something else. Yes there are various huts representing the local people but that's it. Only one of them had actual people in them selling their local wares but the rest were just... More

Well laid out and interesting chance to see cultural make up of Myanmar. Great to get out to well maintained open space after time spent in the city. We went on National day (celebration of first protests against Brithish 1920) and it was busy but not overwhelming and we were made welcome.

An interesting and not highly publicized venue - mostly supported by local but provides a really interesting insight to the regional variances of Myanmar showcasing examples of cultural diversity - a great way to spend an afternoon on the banks of the river!

If you happen to visit Yangon and on a busy or short holiday and would like to know the states of Myanmar. This is the place to be. It covers most but not like the Landmark Village in Nay Pyi Taw. All ages can visit. Even handicapped. Easy access with a golf cart. Ks10,000 per hour.

It does cost $5000k entrance fee. They are doing a lot of work to do this park up and I have been told things are looking a lot better. I really enjoyed looking at how the 8 different ethic groups around Myanmar live and there were good prices in the gift shops at each house. As others have said that... More

The Union National Races Village built by the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation provides a cultural heritage of eight different regions and people of Myanmar. The individual houses, most containing furniture/utensils are spaced out over a large park area with large lakes and other attactions such as a deer paddock. The houses themselves are relatively well maintained but the... More
