Off Beaten Track Cafe

 A beautiful place to enjoy drink in Kandawgyi Lake which is designed to offer the nice ambience with good cafe
 Would you like to go to a cafe and exchange travel knowledge of Myanmar while just having a coffee or something? Now you can, at Off the Beaten Track travel cafe at Kandawgyi Lake.
The cafe offers not only food and drink but also the opportunity to talk travel, especially how to get around without the aid of a travel agent or tour group.

A place for both local and tourist

The cafe owners can explain and recommend places to go, how to get there and answer the questions travellers may have about tourism in Myanmar.
Nay Lin Htike, 39, had been an English tour guide for 17 years before he opened the cafe, so it’s no surprise he communicates easily with English-speaking visitors.
He officially opened Off the Beaten Track on April 9. The main hope is to provide travel information other than what is already popular and offered by agents and guidebooks. Myanmar has a lot of beautiful landscapes, and Nay Lin Htike hopes his customers will help to uncover some new destinations.
“We give free advice and service to tourists. The tourists can ask for trip advice. For example, if they want to go to Myitkyina, we can calculate the cost of transportation by train and by bus and also of accommodation,” Nay Lin Htike said.


Every Thursday night the cafe features “tipsy travel talk”, a regular event where travellers can have a drink while sharing and discussing their experiences. Drinks are on 10 percent discount.
The cafe also offers a small library with many English travel books and a big map of Myanmar that’s easy to read. There’s also free Wi-Fi. Customers can photocopy information for a small fee.
The restaurants comprises nine tables and a small bar and kitchen. All tables are housed on island platforms like comfortable mini bungalows and decorated with white cloth, curtains and small pillows. The table-islands are all named for the cities of Myanmar, and the menu items are cleverly travel-themed.
Prices for food and beverage are modest, ranging from K2000 to K6000. The cafe is open daily from 11am to 11pm in Kandawgyi Natural Park, Karaweik Oo-Yin Kabar.
