“Attraction at City Centre”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Most of people won't go inside of this pagoda because they thought 2 US$ of entrance fee is not worth to go inside. In reality, this is only one pagoda with octagonal shape in Yangon and tourists can learn more about other believes of Myanmar on this pagoda, too. If you are interested in architecture, that would be your choice to learn old-fashion architecture of Myanmar.

“The heart of Yangon”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Just walk around the outside and appreciate all that has happened in it's shadow. Not worth going into as there are other pagodas in Myanmar. It's a pity that the periphery has been filled in with shuttered shops.

“This is the real city center”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

The oldest pagoda in Yangon is the city's center. It is not as spectacular as Shwedagon but go and explore the streets towards the west where you can find India & China town and plenty of street markets.

“Good landmark”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

You won't get lost in Yangon just by looking at Sule. Most local buses stops at Sule. Close to City Hall and Independence Square.US$2 or 3 to get into the pagoda

“Sule Pagoda and Sule Paya are the same place, decent pagoda”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you are staying downtown and arrived late in the day, want to take a walk but don't want to get over to Shwedagon Pagoda, Sule Pagoda is a pleasant stop. Closes at 10 pm. It's nice but not one of the better sites in Yangon. I see somebody has a picture of a river out back of the pagoda--there is no river in the vicinity, the pagoda is in the middle of a big traffic circle. if you have the energy, get to the Shwedagon Pagoda for a morning visit AND an evening visit to see the lights. Sule Paya/Pagoda is just a nice stop if you're in the area.
