This is the replicated of Yangon Shwedagon Pagoda, in the city of Tachileik, one of the golden triangle city. Good to see if you are visiting the golden triangle.

I'm sure this is a great pagoda. And in a town with not much happening, it's probably one of the best things to see. Just be aware of this: when you get there you will be completely hassled by umbrella ladies who will demand to...More

Tachileik is not a very big town and therefore, Shwedagon Pagoda is one of the main pagodas in the city. It is a place frequented by many Buddhist devotees and definitely one of the main tourist attractions here.

This is a nice temple with a good view. But there are many people trying to sell you everything from old currency to sunscreen. I suppose it is worth the cheap tuk tuk ride here, but just be prepared to be hassled.

Lots of little stalls selling niknaks. Within the place there are bells to ring and gongs. Worth a visit as it's quiet but only takes 10 minutes to do the visit.
