Love the scaffolding at the Shwedagon Pagoda (Paya), Yangon.

Finally leaving the Shwedagon Pagoda (Paya), Yangon.

The Shwedagon Pagoda (Paya), Yangon was spectacular. An amazing sight and site.

If you visit don’t just get caught up in the architecture of the place, but also take some time to look at the people, and the monks. Fascinating. You will see not just tourists but also worshippers and locals.

Two valuable tips:

  1. Take a bags for your shoes and socks (which you will have to take off) and don’t leave your shoes and socks at the entrance unless you are absolutely sure you will be exiting the complex by the same stairway you entered.
  2. Visit early morning or early evening if you value the skin on the bottom of your feet as the marble is incredibly hot on your feet if you visit late afternoon.
