I'm planning a visit there next week to see Golden Rock. Is it better to view the rock in the morning or last afternoon? I have to decide whether to spend the night nearby (Kinpun) or go to Bago.

Hi friend,

I've been back from Kyaithiyo Pagoda last Christmas. The re-decoration was finished. Nothing hide the pagoda from your eyes sight. The wether was very cool. It's very crowded all day, even the night.

Enjoy your trip.

Hi Dasabook,

I just noticed your question.

Observing Khaikthiyo in different time will give you variety experience. It's good to visit anytime. For the most maximize of great experience. I suggest to stay near the Pagoda at Khaitho Hotel which 5 miniutes walks or Mountain Top which about 10 minutes walks. Staying near the pagoda will allow you to go the pagoda at night. It's open 24 hours and see the food offering to Pagoda in early morning.

It's better to arrive Khaithiyo in the early afternoon. From the base camp you need to transfer to a 6 wheel truck and further walk about 45 minutes.

On the returning to Yangon, you can travel in Pago about 5-6 sites.
