The biggest and most impressive pagoda we have ever seen. So much to see and admire. You could easily take 100 pictures. Take your time and an umbrella for the heat or the rain.

Beautiful architecture best seen in the evenings when lights are on. Best to wear sandals or slippers you can remove easily at entrance. Bring a plastic bag so your sandals can be kept in your bag; seems no one left it on the stairs as...More

One of the most impressive religious sites I have ever visited. Go very early to watch the first rays of sunlight touch the huge golden stupa... A living, sacred site, bustling with life yet still peaceful and serene...

It is for sure worthwhile to visit, a must see monument in Yangon. Will go back to Myanmar to visit the other cities.

Mesmerising grandeur! Very well maintained, peaceful and calm place. Was good to see people following discipline and not creating ruckus like an overcrowded tourist spot. Foreigners have to pay entry fee of 8k. Number one thing to do in Rangoon!!

The elegant Shwedagon Pagoda is Yangon’s most famous landmark. The massive 99 meter high gold plated pagoda with the diamond studded spire set on top of a small hill in downtown Yangon dominates the area and is visible from much of the city. After dark...More

A bit walk from the city center. The pagoda it self is beautiful and also the surrounding. Get ready to pay 8000 per person. Of course only for foreigners.

Yes, I think so. Ther was several lifts, but I do not remember if you was able to pas into the rooms whit a wheel chair.
Does the Shwedagon Pagoda offer luggage storage? I will be in Yangon for only a day and would like to tour the pagoda without having to carry around my luggage. I read somewhere else on Tripadvisor that there is a Security gate at the lift foot of Shwedagon pagoda that offers storage but I don't see this information anywhere else. Any insight would help, thank you!
