  • This is a must visit in Hpa-An. The rock on which the temple has been build looks amazing. It is only a short scooter ride (scooter rent 1 day: 6000 Kyat) and you can easily combine it with other beau...  more »

  • There is lots of construction going in around the pagoda as they are going to fill water all the way around. It will be beautiful when finished. Interesting sight.  more »

  • I would only say that it was okay, but I was glad we visited, as it is picturesque and has great views of Mt Zwekabin. The actual visit was short. Walk across a foot bridge to the artificial island and remove your shoes. Walk around and up narrow stairways. You cannot go all the way to the top. Picture taking is not encouraged, this is a place of prayer. Silence is encouraged by signs that are ignored. Local tourists frequently stop foreigners to take pictures with them. (If this bothers you, don't visit Myanmar!) Before visiting we went to lunch at the nearby monastery (we were with a large group of our Burmese students) for a very good (free) vegetarian meal.
  • Snail mountain in thai word , in this temple have simple vegetarian food free for everyone you can see Mt. Zwegabin.
  • I like this place beautiful nature and very happy they are service free for eat lunch and dinner
  • Only 3 miles far from my house.
  • Nice scenery and setting but the "keep silent" signs are ignored by giggling and excited visitors, running kids, selfie enthusiasts, and anything else that makes us human :)
