This place is amazing and not that crowded with tourist. Maybe locals come to this place but you can still enjoy how peaceful it is! It’s a bit far from the city center (22 km) so on the way try to stop in a monastery...More

Said by the locals to be the world's largest Reclining Buddha, it is certainly large. However, it is dwarfed by the 330 foot tall standing buddha just up the hill. The standing Buddha, though tall, is artistically and emotionally unimpressive. It distracts from the experience...More

Loved visiting this unique and very impressive site. These immense, iconic reclining and standing Buddhas can be seen for miles. Myanmar has some of the most amazing Buddhist monuments and statues in the world.
