Absolutely worth the visit. Veterans lie here far from their homes in England, Canada, Scotland, India and Wales. Very moving and well cared for, this is a place of peace and contemplation.

Once you entered the place, you can feel the solemnity. It is very peaceful and the surrounding is filled with flowering plants. Usually, there are couples dating, not much appropriate but it is as if part of the local norms to have a date in...More

Unusual memorial construction with well maintained lawns and head stones. A lot of young Burmese girls in groups walking around the place seemed strange to me. Congratulations to the organization and the people who maintain this cemetery.

I was amazed to find this beautifully kept graveyard for soldiers from World War II on the outskirts of Yangon. I strolled between the gravestones reading of young soldiers from Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, England and Wales who lost their lives here in Burma. Very...More

I’ve been to a number of memorials/cemeteries, none have been so well flourished with flowers. Truly beautiful. It’s used as a place for locals to go that’s quiet, relaxed. Unless you have family members mentioned it possibly something that you visit on route to Bago...More

The cemetery is such a peaceful place and so incredibly well-maintained that it seems to be a favoured hangout for the locals. One or two families picnicked in the grass, couples lounged romantically amongst the graves and children played nearby.

An interesting war cemetery which is well maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. I visited with friends by taking the circle train from downtown then taking a taxi from one of the furthest north stations. A word of warning, though. If you are used...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.
