Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon, Myanmar

We visited the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, Myanmar back in 2019.

The Shwedagon Pagoda and it’s surrounding buildings is an outstandingly atmospheric place to visit.

We spent hours just walking around taking it all in. The pagoda is 99 metres high, covered in gold plate and the spire at the top is studded with diamonds.

It’s the most important pilgrimage site for Buddhists in Myanmar. It really is an amazing place to visit and I can’t recommend it highly enough.
