Just awesome! Can't find words. Don't miss it! Probably the number 1 attraction in Yangon. Needs no planning can buy a ticket at entrance. But dress appropriately or you won't get in. Girls and guys long trousers or skirt, if shorts must be below the knee and no singlets, ladies and gents must cover shoulders

This was the highlight in Yangon. It is so impressive! You can walk around for hours and admire this Pagoda and it's surroundings. We enjoyed being with a guide that could explain everything to us!

Spectacular! A place you must see in Yangon. Best go there at dusk, so you could watch both view of sunset and night.

Being the most popular attraction in the country, Shwedagon Pagoda will most likely be crowded but it's worth it. You can easily spend a few hours looking at all the details and taking pictures.

The preeminent Pagoda in all of Myanmar. Its an amazing site with sprawling temple grounds and golden chedhi all around. Really interesting stop. The size, the amount of gold, the amazing architecture, all the people worshipping- many all dressed up. Its really an event for many of the worshipers. Nice energy. We got to the front entrance about 3:00 in... More

This pagoda is probably one of the most notable and amazing in the region. If you can, plan your visit in the early evening you can see this sight during the daylight and then in the evening when it is lit with floodlights....totally different experience. Everything about this pagoda is spectacular and opulent beyond imagination.

If you go to one place in Yangon this better be it! Soooo beautiful. Will take a couple of hours at least to see it all.

The number one pilgrimage site in Myanmar and a must do for visitors. It can be busy but always seemed to be calm. Truly an amazing site with an opportunity to see monks, nuns and locals all offering blessing and prayers to many and various Buddahs.

It was 40 degree celsius when i was there, scorching hot, remember to bring some drinks and umbrella! You cant wear shoes or socks walking in here so be prepare with the marble floor heat! It is a big temple, you will be fascinated seeing their unique style of architecture. Heard it will be much better if you visit it... More
