This is a nice Pagoda but probably not worth paying the couple of dollars to go in. Do a lap around and it's great to view from the pedestrian overpass up the road.

I went there with my driver to show me around the place instead, payed 8000kyat for leaving my shoes behind, it is better to go there with someone that knows something about the place (so I heard from people) so I go with my driver and the place is just an okay place, not impressed about anything apart from the...

I decided to visit this place since we need to pass it in order to get back to our hotel. Looks okay on the outside but not in. We had to pay a foreigner price of 3$ (3000 kyat) as an entry fee and 1000 kyat for shoes storing, 4000 kyat in total. It was acceptable at first since some... More

This pagoda is in the centre of the city, and around you can see most of the other attractions like cityhall, independence war structure. Its not big as shwedagon pagoda., but still its next to it.

This is very much a downtown local Pagoda and Temple used by the people in the town. It's worth a quick look but that's all.

as expected, we know we had to remove shoes before heading into the pogoda but never we knew that we will ask to pay 1000kyat (we though its the entrance fee) when we found out its a "OPTIONAL" donation. It was stated there you can make your donations freely but not necessary and we were ask to pay 1000kyat just... More

Impressive because of its dominance in what is effectively the geographic heart of Yangon. Probably better viewed from above.

Perfect introduction to Myanmar. Experiencing the new country (assuming you arrive in Yangon) and how it is, and how it is changing can be seen all around Sule Paya. The city with a Buddhist Icon in the middle of it. They make you pay 1000 Kyat to leave your shoes, so just do what the locals do and carry your... More

I'm not quite impressed with my visit there. The pagoda is OK, although it's just another pagoda, not outstanding. The worst thing was that I and my friend have been greeted by a 'volunteer' saying he's studying to be a guide (but end up asking for money). To be safe, I asked him first 'how much do we have to...

Sule Pagoda is in the center of the city, right near the heart of all the old colonial streets. It's pretty hard to miss it.
