Shwedagon Pagoda

After a short night sleep in Yangoon, we visited the huge Shwedagon Pagoda. The most famous Pagoda in Myanmar!

Every 4 years the Pagoda is resurfaced with gold … The gold is brought up to the workers via a small carriage – they use 459kg of gold leaf to re-coat the pagoda.

We also visited the laying Boudah
