The icon of Yangon is no doubt the beautiful Shwedagon Pagoda towering above the city atop a hill. The 2,600-year old pagoda is considered the oldest in the world and is completely gilded in over 30 tons of gold that sparkles in the sunlight. For the people of Myanmar, Shwedagon is one of the most holy religious sites and during Buddhist festivals, is packed with visitors. There are shops that line street all the way up to the pagoda, which are fun to browse. Be sure to dress appropriately and be respectful.
