Shwedagon Pagoda

Prepare to have your breath taken away by the towering golden pagoda which dominates the Yangon skyline and mass of smaller pagodas shimmering in the sunlight. Close to 110 metres tall, it houses sacred religious relics and even some strands of the Buddha’s hair. Slip off your shoes and cover your shoulders to marvel at the sight of monks and devotees washing, praying or bringing flowers. At just 9.5 km from the hotel, west of the refreshing Kandawgyi Lake, this most sacred of Buddhist sites is a must-see.
