Myanmar (Burma) // Yangon (Rangoon) //

Kandawgyi and Inya lakes

There’s less shade at the much larger Inya Lake to the north, but the southern shore is the site of Aung San Suu Kyi’s home. The road is now open – it was off-limits when she was under house arrest – but there is little that can actually be seen there today.
