  • you cant miss it - the city streets surround it. Worth a quick look and the offices on the outside are very interesting including astrology readers.  more »
  • 市中心點,就在市政廳正前方,許多計程車以及公車的交集處,感覺真的非常漂亮且值得推薦大家來看看。夜晚中後面的月亮照起照片特別的美麗。真的很美的佛寺。  more »
  • Pagodas used to be free for everyone in Yangon. However, as soon as I set foot in Sule Pagoda I was pounced on & forced to pay $6 at a kiosk (1 adult + 1 teen). The Pagoda has not changed in 20-yrs of...  more »

  • Beautiful from the outside. However the entrance fee for foreigners signposted in USD is a bit of a turn off. USD $3 seems excessive. Something more in the realm of 1000 kyat might be more appropriate. We just admired from outside.
  • A major iconic paya downtown in Yangon. All roads seem to lead to this impressive building. They say it is older than the more famous and grand Shwedagon Paya.
  • To be honest, it may be better to just walk around it instead of going inside. You can view it from afar if you are on one of the streets that leads to it. Relaxing in the park across the street is good for people watching.
  • One of 3 sites that i think are definitely worth visiting (the other 2 being Shwedagon & Kyauk That Gyi temples). Sule is located in the downtown area, readily accessible, and u cannot miss it. In the evening, the pagoda is a prominently lit feature in the boulevard leading from the Shangri-La hotel.
  • Much smaller compared to Shwedagon Pagoda, but in the heart of the city. Be sure to explore some of the smaller rooms & altars surrounding the pagoda. Entry runs 3000 kyat for foreigners.
