Sacred to Buddhists, the Shwedagon pagoda is believed to be seen from anywhere in Yangon. Its sanctity has been maintained for almost 2000 years, and you can’t miss this shrine when you visit Myanmar. You can visit sites such as Kyaiktiyo or Golden Rock, a stupa situated on a cliff or the reclining Buddha of Win Sein Taw Ya in Yadana Taung.
‘The floating gardens’ or Inle Lake is a godly experience. What can be more idyllic than a serene water body surrounded by the striking stupas of Myanmar, stilt house villages, and lush with a bird sanctuary in its midst? On a good day, you will be able to spot a good number of birds.
The Temple Town of Bagan is yet another jewel in this country. As the title suggests, there is generous sprinkling of magnificent temples in this area – the Ananda and Dhammayangyi Pahto, Shwezigon Paya and Shwesandaw Paya, to name a few.
