Very very commercial - I was shocked - I felt as though I was in a theme park!....do not despair though as the rest of Myanmar just gets better and better.

I strongly encourage all visitors to Yangon MUST visit this place. A holy site, I'm amazed by the structures and Buddha statues, and the peace and calmness that accompanied this place. I have been here twice and never failed to "bathe" the Buddha that represent my birth day.

The most wonderful place and never miss a chance visit when you get in Yangon. Recommend to see both day and evening time. Better to go by 5:30 and stay up to 7:30 pm. Prepare to wear long pants or skirts. Shorts are not allowed.

The attraction is fascinating! I was privileged to have an excellent English-speaking monk that gave me an exception tour of the temple. A must visit if you ever get into Yangon.

Amazing place. I went once during the day and then again at sundown/evening. Really came to life in the dark - stunning. Quite a long, steep walk for some up to it and jumped on by an unofficial guide straightaway but in a very nice way unlike other parts of South East Asia - my guide was nice as most... More

Stunning; beautiful buildings; colourful; spoilt by the commercialism on entry. Bypass that and you will have a wonderful experience.
