At the center of the nation's former capital, Sule Pagoda is an octagonal structure surrounded by bustling streets and buildings from the colonial era. Examine the 44 m (144 ft) tall pagoda's lavish ornamentation and see how a steady flow of devotees come to bring offerings and revere the enshrined strand of the Buddha's hair. Besides touring the sacred compound, you can also visit nearby shops, which offer palmistry and astrology services, along with religious souvenirs and gifts.

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.

  • Nice to see but a lot of people trying to sell you things. People talking to you 2 minutes and then asking you to pay. Be careful. Entrance fee 3000 kyats.
  • It's worth a visit if you stay close by, it's a peaceful and beautiful place. However, you should choose to first visit Shwegadon Pagoda if you only have limited time (which is breathtaking). Anyway, go there before sunset to enjoy the special ambiance!
  • The area around it is cool. The pagoda itself might be nicer from the outside - check out the nearby rooftop bar for a good view of the pagoda.
  • Nothing much from the inside. Dont go in as there are foreigner charges even the shoe keeping is chargeable and the hawkers will try to push the swallows into your hand to make you release them for 2,000 kyat each
  • Nice famous pagoda in the downtown of Yangon! Lovely architect and the surroundings are worth visiting - a bit mix of Bristish architect (Yangon city hall, church), the park nearby, new banking building (AGD, Centrepoints, etc.)
