At Early in the morning in Yangon is a good time to make your way to the National Races Village. A place which isnot much visited by common forgein tourists.. The area National Races Village is located near Thanlyin Bridge. Thaketa Township. The National races Village in Yangon is a special place as it makes you feel and experience a bit of every state in Myanmar. The content of every state in Myanmar is presented here…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can learn in one place intensively about customs and traditions of Myanmars national races. Their culture and customs. Arriving by taxi at the National Races Village was a pleasure… In the early morning, traffic density is already high on the roads.. The entrance at the park is impressive, a good preview of what you can expect here… After buying the ticket we enter the park..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Each Myanmar state is represented here by a garden with an appropriate building. Immidiatly we spot the replica of the Nan Mint tower of Bagan.. Designed with beautiful white and blue windows.. After removing your shoes, wich is common here, we make our way to the top.. A nice temperature of 25*C together with a breeze and a great view. It is fantastic to be on top of the tower and enjoy the view.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inside the houses you can view a piece of the families life and possessions of the for each state.. At most of the houses represented here, it is possible for females to wear a dress of that State.. females get a Shan, Mon, Kachin, Kayah or other Myanmar race looks.. Many locals we meet here are very friendly frequently they request to make photo together. The kindness of the people in Myanmar is their most precious gift.

Also all of the other states too ofcourse… The place is truely amazing simular as its entrance.. Well maintained and people keep it accurately clean… It gives great pleasure together with the wonderful people here to walk around here…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Halfway our tour at the tea stall a friendly lady is selling Myanmar products. she offers me to drink Myanmar thee and taste some of the local spices… It feels fantastic and it is a good moment to relax the feet… Most of the houses in the National Races Village present sculptures, paintings and other precious items to let you feel the life of each State presented here… Together with all this, it is a fun place to be…
