Just beneath the Shwedagon Pagoda, the perfect selfie opportunity for you and your squad awaits.

The Myanmar International Lighting Festival has turned a section of People’s Park into a glittering wonderland that will be open to the public until April 30.

Admission is K1,500 for students and K3,000 for non-students.

The entrance is on the east side of Pyay Road, just south of the flyover. You can enter before 10pm.

The festival has been organized by DN Development Group, whose project director recently told the Myanmar Times: “I would like everyone to have unforgettable memories.”

We really think you should go, but if you can’t, enjoy these photos.

The festival’s 70 million lights are arranged in all kinds of shapes, like this cool boat.

A whole section of light sculptures takes inspiration from Myanmar culture artifacts, like this pattala.

This one is like a giant white banana.

This one is obviously the Empire State Building.

Everyone looks good here.

It’s super pretty, but there’s not a whole lot to do here.

This one made us wonder: what are windmills for?

This lady is a true inspiration.

A whole section dedicated to the victims of the fishing industry.

The festival strongly encourages romance.
