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

This was the second of 3 stops on our one hour tuk-tuk tour during our day trip across the border from Thailand. Interesting area with huge golden chedi and hall with 4 large buddhas. The whole place sits on a balcony with views across Tachileik....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.

Smaller replica of the golden temple in Rangoon-very pretty. Happened to catch an ordination celebration of 2 local men becoming monks.

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.

this is a small replica of the Shwedagon pagoda in Yangon, and attracts the visitors from Thailand. Part of the military attempts to Burmanize this part of Shan state.

Nice pagoda and some shopping stalls. Definitely worth a visit if you cannot get to main Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. We are westerners and had two young children and felt safe. Well worth a visit if in area.
