  • absolutely to be seen. both for the beauty but also for the people who attend it. Leaving aside the cost, I'd say after a while you see one and you see all of them. but this deserves it.

  • The Chedi is located in the heart of the city, near the parliament and park, a historical pagoda around the pagoda. There are some of the best angels that you need to come and don't miss.

  • Great experience, was more genuine than other famous temples around Asia. Flocks of Chinese tourists haven't taken over. And the tourists that are there are few and respectful. There is a real feeling of calm and local culture.
  • The must-go place for both locals and foreigners. A 44-metre tall golden pagoda, located in the heart of yangon. The junction of most bus car lines. Usually open from 4-5 Am to 10-11Pm at night.
