  • Walk from Paya (sleeping Buddha) 5 minutes. NGA Htat Gyi Buddha have a 50 Carat genuine diamond on forehead. It was in 1901. Guide speaks English and Japan in person, but they are vicious and last prompted one 20000 MMK alms as a donation payment. Not worth paying for 20000 MMK Guide content, so we declined.

  • Serene temple with huge statue of Buddha. Located up a hill away from the main roads & heavy traffic.
  • Another Hugh white buddha, close to chuak htat kyi pagoda.
  • I visited after Chaukhtatgyi Paya. It is just opposite to it. The long walk before entering the temple might let you give up, just keep walking you will find it is a nice and peaceful place to take good rest. And there are also come Thai buddha images there. I would recommend to add more English translations on the introduction of the history and buddha stature. Watch it with not much background story is not satisfied to the tourist I think. There is no entrance fee but a donation box in front writes "FOREIGNERS ARE REQUESTED TO CONTRIBUTE US AS YOUR WISH FOR RENOVATION OF THE PAGODA", I have donated but with uncomfortable feeling that I got a kind of force since I am a foreigner. As for me, I think a reasonable entrance fee is much better than this kind of donation.
  • A smaller but peaceful pagoda. There's a wall with an optical illusion installation.

Where to stay in Yangon (Rangoon)

It can be difficult to find decent budget accommodations in Yangon, especially downtown, where rooms are usually small and booked months in advance. Look farther away from the city center for cozier budget options, often with complimentary breakfast included. The Kandawgyi lakeside features a number of high-end establishments.
