At Kyaik-Khauk Pagoda the views were just superb. It was relatively quiet and peaceful with less people than we had encountered elsewhere.

Located in Thanlyin Township, in southern Yangon Region, Myanmar and one of the popular tourist destination. Drop by for a visit with friends on the way back to hotel where we stay from the industrial area in Thilawa Special Economic Zone.

Few people around if you go during the day midweek. Nice views of the Yangon skyline in the distance. An impressive pagoda though not as large as Shwedagon. If you're out in the Thanlyin area, be sure to pass by.
