Sule pagoda is set in the middle of a roundabout. With traffic circulating it its a challenge to get there. As YGN traffic does not stop for anybody. Its a great spot to take pictures. Inside the pagoda not much but to get dirty feet!

Met an ex-monk-turned-tour-guide who made it very interesting. Like the number of vows that a Nun needs to take are far more than what a Monk needs to.....

Nice pagoda with an eclectic location: can be a real challenge to get there by crossing the busy streets around. Definitely a place to include in your downtown city tour. However, even if it is kind of usual to pay the access to a pagoda in Yangon, it is a bit expensive: especially when they "impose" a donation for the... More

The amount of gold that is included in the pagoda is simply astonishing. Access is very simple with a safe over-pass after alighting from the inexpensive taxis that cover the city so well. For some, it may even be just a short walk up Sule Pagoda Road from the several hotels in "The Strand" vicinity. The advantage of the over-pass... More

Tho much smaller than the Shwedagon Pagoda, It just as beautiful to me. Mostly locals visit here. I think I only saw one other tourist the two hours of my visit. There many corners and places where one can sit and reflect while here at the Sule Pagoda. Without the crowds like at the Shwedagon Pagoda, it's a respite from... More

Sule is well known for its mean: the meeting point. But the traffic in Yangon is getting crazier day by day, special in this center point. But we do enjoy the city hall, the park and the people in this area, a lot.

The Sule Pagoda is definitely worth a visit and is located in the middle of a busy part of busy Yangon town. But as soon as you get into the Pagoda, you can forget about all the hustle and bustle of the busy and noisy town and just enjoy this wonderful functioning Pagoda. There are lots of things to see,...
