City Park in Mandalay, Myanmar

Aging rides, massage chairs and video games

Imagine the shabbiest, most dangerous, yet raucously fun fair you’ve ever been to. The rides are dilapidated and a bit sketchy, and all the folks visiting seem to be in a weird state of bliss compared to the state of all the entertainment. This, my friends, is exactly what you get while visiting City Park in Mandalay.

City Park is a half theme park, half actual park found near the banks of the Arrawaddy River. Locals (and possibly travelers, but I’m not going to bet on this one) can choose between a plethora of aging rides, “5D” attractions, as well as massage chairs, video games and other various attractions. Below are some pictures of the fun that could be had while visiting!
