An expanded PyinOoLwin Flower Festival will be held at the National Kandawgyi Botanical Garden in PyinOo Lwin beginning 1st December.
“The flower festival has been held annually in Pyin Oo Lwin for about a two-week period for the last 11 years. This year, however, the flower festival will be held from 1st December to the end of the month.
Therefore, we expected to increase the number of visitors to the flower festival at the garden this year,” said an official from the National Kandawgyi Botanical garden administration office.
To celebrate the flower festival, the authority is decorating and preparing the flowers at the garden.
They are also planning to sell souvenir items including sweaters and warm clothes, local products, handicrafts and other products. The 437-acre garden (172 hectares) received millions of visitors last December.
The festival will display more than 130,000 foreign flower species, artificial flowers and local flower species.
Last year, the entrance fee charged during the festival period was Ks1,000 per adult, Ks500 per child and US$5 each for foreigners.
