Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon is pure bliss in the morning. Its serenity and the murmuring whispers of prayers are calming to the soul. At least that’s how I felt because I arrived there at 4:15 in the morning – earlier than most Buddhist worshippers. And way too earlier than most tourists, too. I highly recommend that you go early in the morning, for an obvious reason: it’s not crowded.
Your visit to Myanmar’s capital city won’t be entirely complete without getting a glimpse of this golden pagoda.
Shwedagon is the most iconic landmark of the country that used to called Burma under British rule.
