Kakku Pagodas, Kyaing Tong
(4.7/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
A little off the beaten track, 600-year-old Kakku Pagodas attract visitors with the sheer number of pagodas in such a small space. Built side-by-side, the religious structures provide an interesting sighting and heritage learning experience, and surround one main, bigger pagoda. Each structure has its own ornaments and statues, and twinkling chimes decorate the air. Try to organise a good guide to teach you about the history and the Pa-O people who live in the area. Before you head to Kyaing Tong, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Kyaing Tong trip generator, to make sure you see all that Kyaing Tong has to offer, including Kakku Pagodas.

  • We must find the life to get there, shared Taxi or so already is in the middle of nowhere, but a very cool look, place even not being the most famous of Myanmar.
