The pagoda itself is kind of small... nothing much to see and it's in the middle of things so it's crowded in the day, maybe walk there at night to grab some photos and move on, nothing real to see, it's nice nonetheless though.

It's a nice small pagoda. Lovely for a quick stop. Entrance fee is 3,000 kyat. Shoe guy wanted 1,000 kyat -- whatever, didn't fight that. It's a nice temple, pretty similar to others. Be careful about a nice, younger guy with very good English. He's...More

After paid 3000ks for 1 person, we got in. A enthusiastic guy took care us and guided to us. When every introduction done, he asked us to pay 10000ks!!! BUT this service looked like contenting in tickets fee. It made us very upset.

Located very close to Scott Market, this temple is bang on a busy road junction. Although small, it has a nice ambience (unlike crowded Shwedegoan Pagoda) and you can observe devotees praying silently. Ideal time to visit is early morning

My driver explained to me that Sile Pagoda is a great landmark to orient oneself in Yangon at this time but not really all that interesting inside. After looking inside I have to agree. Far more interesting is that the mosque is nearby and in...More

This golden pagoda is an unusual in that its octagonal shape continues right yo to the bell and inverted bowl. It is a little crowded as it located in the heart if Yangon.

The pagoda itself was breath-taking but be warned that there will be lots of people coming at you and you have to pay here and there all the time. Entrance fee, fees for your shoes, flowers. There will be several locals rushing to you and...More

Yes, Chinatown is west of the Sule Pagoda, Be sure to see Mahabandoola Garden with the Independence Monument right by the pagoda. Not too far a walk is the Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue and you are not too far from the Strand... More
