This was the first sight I visited in Yangon and it created a brilliant first impression. The cost to enter is $3.50 which can be paid in dollars or local currency. There is a booth just to the side of the sight for tourist where you pay and can also leave your shoes. Botatoung Pagoda contains hairs of the Buddha, It is worth having some small change in local currency with you to make an offering. I happily wondered around on my own taking in the sight. I found it very good value for money and very beautiful.
