The Karaweik Palace Floating Restaurant 

Built in the shape of the pyi-gyi-mun royal barge the restaurant looks spectacular reflected in Royal Lake.  The double bow represents the mythological Indian Karaweik bird from which the restaurant takes it's name.

Built in the early 1970's the interior has seen better days and is now sadly quite shabby.

The food was mediocre.  The highlight of the evening was the cultural dance performance and an amazing female juggler acrobat.

 

This was our last night in Burma.  Following dinner and the show we walked around the lake filling our memories with the spectacular site of Shwedagon reflected in the lake.  I will count the days until I can return.  

It was to be three years but I did go back.
