Oh what a stunning pagoda and even though it was partly under scaffold due to renovation work it didn't take away from its complete beauty. So calming and thought provoking. It's just amazing and a must see!
this 2,600 year old pagoda is in the heart of town with lots of traffic and people all around. We chose to view if from a distance instead of going inside. Go to the park across the street from the city hall (the huge white...More
It is an interesting pagoda from outside while inside there isn't much to see and in addition, there are way more people trying to scam you in and around this pagoda in contrast to other pagodas in Yangon
One of those pagoda in Yangon you should visit. It's really nice and worth to visit. Better if you can get guide be sure there are a lot of interesting things and rituals. It's better if somebody can tell about. One monk told us many...More

As the Shwedagon Pagoda is under renovation, this is the best one in Yangon. Not that big but still impressive.
It is located in the center of the city and surrounded by other monuments. Definitely worth a visit in Yangon.
A bit strange experience. A lot I preying people, mixed with tourists and some people who do crafts, origami and other stuff.
Make sure to go on the bridge, is has a nice over the pagoda.
Worth a trip, but only one

Yes, Chinatown is west of the Sule Pagoda, Be sure to see Mahabandoola Garden with the Independence Monument right by the pagoda. Not too far a walk is the Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue and you are not too far from the Strand Hotel. But as the others have mentioned, it really depends on how much you like to walk in the heat. I say do it as you will go through the various neighborhoods and get more of a feel for the city.
