- Shwedagon Pagoda
It’s a 10-minute taxi ride from the hotel to the Shwedagon Pagoda, which is one of Myanmar’s most famous pagodas. This pagoda dazzles the senses with walls covered in gold and jewels, surrounded by flower offerings. You can take a 10-minute walk from the hotel to reach the Sule Pagoda, which at 2,000 years old is even older than Shwedagon Pagoda. In the same vicinity, you can visit the Colonial Quarter to see buildings left behind the British — the Queen Anne-style architecture stands in stark contrast to the Buddhist stupas. The colonial quarter is next to the Chinatown market, where you can survey a wild variety of street food.
