Create an itinerary including Shwedagon Pagoda
Journey to Shwedagon Pagoda along with faithful Buddhist practitioners, who visit to honor the relics of previous Buddhas. This golden stupa, or pagoda, ranks among the holiest religious sites in Myanmar. Tradition dictates that it has stood for over 2,600 years, although historians approximate that the Mon people constructed it between the 6th and 10th centuries. In its current state, after countless renovations and reconstructions, diamonds and other precious stones encrust its steeple; see if you can spot the legendary 76-carat diamond at the tip from the ground below.

  • I think this monument will be like the Hagia Sophia, you get the most out of it by visiting it many times.

  • This is a very famous pagoda in Yangon. It was made by gold and so beautiful in the evening or in the night. There are a lot of local residents. Ticket for foreigner is 10,000 kyats and free for local visitors. You shall wear polite dress. If you wear anything too short, you can borrow another dress from management board (it is free but you need to deposit 5,000 kyats). There may be some local tour guides chasing you. If you accept their service, you need to tip them. They will said that it depends on your heart but they usually mention about 50,000 kyats (a bit high). However, if you don’t enough money, you can give 20-30,000 kyats, it is ok.
  • One of the well known Pagoda in Myanmar. You can see many historical heritages of Buddaha. Strongly recommend that this is the place to visit and you will know why called The Golden Land to Myanmar.
