It is the most famous place in Yangon and the biggest pagoda in Yangon. If you go to Yangon, it is one of the places you should go. It is a bit far from downtown of Yangon. But you can get to Shwedagon Pagodatake by walking, but taking a time for 40 or 50 min. If you use a taxi, the price is around 4,000 to 5,000 kya.
Every day, many Myanmar visit and pray at Shwedagon Pagoda.
※ Foreigners must pay the entrance fee, 8 US dollars. However, if you go early in the morning, sometimes you don’t need to pay, because there is no security guard. Myanmar and Yangon security is safe, so you can walk in the early in the morning and midnight. But please pay attention, especilly, Ladies.
Few years ago, Myanmar was the military government and Rohingya problem, but Myanmar people are very shy and kind people, so no problem to travel in Myanmar. I think that Myanmar is one of the safety countries in the world.

It is difficult to get to there by using a local bus. There is no bus line from Sule Pagoda(Yangon Local Bus Terminal).
