Knowing of the importance, history and fame of Aung San Suu Kyi i was looking forward to see the place where she was held for so many years. Very big disappointment: we saw nothing but a closed gate, that's it. Pure loss of time.

This had been built up by our tour guide as a must do, so off we set in 34c on a busy dusty road, only to see a big gate😢 Oh well, at least we saw where history was made, or near it anyway!

Having been told that we would be able to see Aung San Suu Kyi's house from the roadside, all we actually saw was a very high fence, a steel gate and a security guard. Don't waste your time.

The park is lovely but all you see is the gate as illustrated in this picture, and she no longer lives there.

Aung San Suu Kyi House is a historical site, where Aung San Suu Kyi was house-arrested. You can however just see the entrance gate and cannot get inside. Security guards were watching. So, I didn't take a picture. Anyway, in my opinion it is not...More

Can't even peep inside, it's all closed up by this big gate. You can just slow down and just take a picture if you are passing by, no need to stop unless you want to pose and take a picture with the gate.

We were really keen to come here, but there is literally nothing to see - just a gate which is not even in the same place as the famous gate where the lady used to come out to speak to people.

Unfortunately, one cannot get inside as the gates are closed and guarded. Not much to see due to the compound walls. Would be great if they allow atleast small conducted tours; though one appreciates that this is a private dwelling
