National Landmarks Garden

Pyin Oo Lwin

This extensive hilly park is dotted with representations of famous landmarks from around Myanmar. It's pretty tacky, but if you haven't got time to tour the entire country… The entrance is opposite the National Kandawgyi Gardens, near the southern (main) entrance. There is also an amusement park just to the north: one ticket includes admission to both sites.
