A stay in Myanmar would not be complete without a visit to Shwedagon Pagoda. The historic site, which overlooks Yangon, never fails to enchant. The shimmering main stupa soars high above the capital and is visible from miles away. Shwedagon Pagoda was built more than 2,500 years ago and is the most sacred Buddhist pagoda in Myanmar. Holy relics are believed to be enshrined within the complex.
