This is such a huge pagoda in gold. There are many people to visit place. It better to see the pagoda in the evening as it nicer and the wheather less hot.
You should visit this pagoda in Yangon.

It took us an hour to get there before going to the airport. Lots of walking and overnight bus from Bahan. Pagoda is very beautiful. Probably. We didn’t get in because they wanted us to pay 10 thousand. It is not such a big sum of money but if to think more, it is regular temple for locals who of course don’t pay. But because we are foreigners everywhere we go locals want us to pay money, which makes us feel stupid as we arrive and they see us as dollar signs. It is a beautiful religious site but you won’t clean your karma there.

We visited in late afternoon when the sun was setting. It was a good time to view the Pagoda but many visitors and locals there at that time of the day so not good for photos.
Entrance fees we found to be high compared to other tourist places in Myanmar. We were not allowed to put our shoes on to enter the toilets!! so left earlier than anticipated.

Looking up at the 76 carat diamond on the spite of the pagoda was surreal. It looked like a bright star against the dark sky. The guide made it all the more interesting taking us to the days it was plundered and then rebuilt! It’s a must see especially on the nights of a full moon. It is magical.
