just beautiful went during the day a little bit hot. Best to go in the mornings or around sunset. You can enjoy this enormous pagoda during the day and the night, a must see destination whilst in Yangon.

This pagoda is amazing. One main stupa with a jewel-encrusted top, and over 60 other pagodas. Countless amazing Buddha images, incredible atmosphere. Not to be missed!

The pagoda is very well known, crowded of tourists of course for religious reasons. Furthermore, the heat doesn't help. In spite of that, I really enjoyed the visit, because it's a very suggestive place, regardless of your belief/spirituality

You cannot leave Yangon without having visited this marvellous huge pagoda, which is said to be the most beautiful in Myanmar. Devote at least 2 hours. I actually spent 3 hours. Extremely well preserved, you enjoy an almost mystical atmosphere

I've been wanting to visit the Shwedagon Pagoda for years and I wasn't disappointed. It is certainly very beautiful and is up there on the list of places you should see before you die. We went first thing in the morning which I recommend - it's before the large tour groups get there and before that glorious sun gets too... More

Shwedagon Pagoda is just right in the city center and can be easily found! It's very popular in Myanmar where most people are buddism followers.

Very big, very crowded, not just tourists but also a lot of local folk. Need to observe dress code. No shorts. Beautiful. Has a lift which is a bit more expensive than other entrance via stairs. Need to remove shoes. nice park beyond front entrance.

From west gate with the escalator upto the temple. What i really liked besides the beautifull gold tego was gge buzz of all the monks and civilians expresssing their religion. It is like a big market place. Sit and enjoy the setting.
