Flower Festival in Pyin Oo LwinFloral festival in Pyin Oo Lwin
I was there with my mates during the flower festival and the music night (in December). A great place to take photographs and also to see a pair taking their pre-wedding photographs. It is not only the lovely flower bed and designs that make a tour of this gardens appealing, but also the large grouping of flowers and flowers makes this a unique area.
Aviaries, butterflies museums, orchids and Nan Myint Tower are also noteworth a visit. For my part, I think that the butterflies collection in the backyard is completely underestimated. We' ve taken a few photos in the backyard. It is a beautiful gardens in every respect! It took us more than two and a half hour to go for a stroll in the backyard.

The Pyin Oo Lwin Flower Festival spans the whole of December
The Pyin Oo Lwin Flower Festival this year will be extended from its regular two week festival to the whole of December, as Myanmar's state press today reported. The festival takes place for the twelfth time in the picturesque city in the Mandalay region. It takes place in the 437 hectare National Botanical Garden of Kandawgyi, which has been open since 1915.
"We are expecting an increased number of people to attend this year's flower festival in the garden," said an officer from the National Botanical Gardens Authority of Kandawgyi. Every year the festival attracts tens of millions of visitors. More than 130,000 flower varieties are on show at the festival, among them native and international varieties.
Flower sculpture will also be on show, and sellers will be selling crafts from the area. In the past year there were also some evenings with rocking and hip-hop music. Entrance to the festival is K1,000 per adults and K500 per kid for Myanmar and US$5 for overseas. Founded at the end of the nineteenth centuary as a UK based Koloniale Enklave, Pyin Oo Lwin is known for its relatively large Anglo-Burmese community, rural architectural style and cold all year round temper.
