Most interesting place to visit in Yangon is this pagoda , it has been builed 2,500 years ago use 40,000of gold leaf or about 8 ton of gold , on the top of Pagada have got jewelries jamestones 2,000 karats , underneath of pagoda have gots 8 Hairs of the load of Buddha. This pagoda is the biggest in Asia or maybe in the world . Suggestion : walk by clockwise, go there at the evening or late afternoon to catch the sun set also it will be less hot especially you have to take your shoes off, bring a plastic bag for carry your shoes around in case you don't want to remember which door that you have to get back to find your shoes :) there is so many entrances and so many exits.

Beautiful, interesting, worth the money. A few "guides" trying to offer their services in the usual way but still really nice.

This place is very nice, the only off-putting thing is the entry fee, 8000K for tourists, free for locals. I don't know how they can charge such an amount when it costs only 2000K for a 5 hr bus trip. Be prepared walk on HOT tiles in barefeet for about an hour and wear long pants or a long skirt. They will rent you a skirt at a refundable fee of 5000K.
It is worth a visit.

Beautiful place, the best time is during the sun is weak or night time when light is on as the tile is chill since you will be walking barefoot. Open from 5am till 10pm. You can never say you have been in Myanmar if you never step into this place. Entrance fee is us$8.

The best attraction in Yangon by far. Go just before sunset and enjoy the atmosphere as the light fades and the light reflected on the pagoda is amazing.

Considering the amount of pagoda's we had seen up to this point it had to be special to impress us and it most definitely did.
