Awesome place, totally worth a visit. Had a great time. You need to have knees covered, be aware and you will need to remove the shoes to visit most of the area. It's acceptable to carry a small bag if you want to carry shoes...More

We visited this pagoda based on online pictures. It was GREAT! We didn't know that tourists need a ticket to enter, so that was embarrassing but the experience was fantastic. I highly recommend visiting this pagoda and walking around the outside of it.

Great experience touring the site, took plenty of interesting pictures. The only downside is the poor weather. Avoid visiting Yangon during wet season.

Every city has that big “must see” attraction, right? In my personal experience, they always leave you feeling like you can check off a box but don’t always leave me feeling fulfilled. Some of the sites in Bangkok made me feel that way, with all...More
