It was a very hot day. The floor could burn the sole of your feet. Make sure to bring cap and water. The pagoda is stunningly white. You can have great photos with the background.

A completely stunning white structure. The pagoda dated back to the 19th century and was built to commemorate the Princess Hsinbyume. Walk all the way to the top for the stunning view of the river and surrounding area.

Excitingly, this pagoda is seems to be unique. You can climb it, which is a novelty, and the design is gorgeous. However, as with all pagodas, it's in bad repair, and rather dirty.
