If you have a lot of time in Mandalay and you wonder what to do, you could do a half day trip here by taxi or a river boat. One can also add this t the Saging Hill trip itinerary and do it in one day. If you have limited time, well honestly speaking you can skip this trip.
Well as others wrote this would have been the biggest Pagoda in the world if finished! Unfortunately it wasn't. Came to ruin by the British Colonials who used it as building material depo and the rest was finished by numerous earthquakes.
To walk up the stairs you need to pay approx 3USD (same ticket as the bell), inside there is nothing to see, the only good spot to see it and do some pictures s by the river bank.
With the river tour trip it can be an experience but otherwise a bit of a disappointment.
