1) Visit the Shwedagon Pagoda

Myanmar’s most sacred Buddhist pagoda and Yangon’s most iconic structure, you can’t really leave without a visit the to golden Shwedagon Pagoda. The stupa is said to be built upon several Buddha relics, including eight strands of Buddha’s hair, and is covered in real gold plates and almost10,000 diamonds and rubies – and that’s just the main structure. Walk through temple after temple around the main stupa and try not to get lost amongst the all gold everything. The most popular time to visit is sunset, but it’s also really nice to show up in late afternoon, explore without the crowds, then get a glimpse of the start of sunset before escaping the hordes. Entrance Fees is USD 10.
