Riding is best early in the day. Known as the Gold Pagoda, the 2,5,000-year-old pagoda is one of the most important places of worship in Myanmar. The pagoda is 99 metres high and is seen throughout the town. The most beautiful, but also the most visited one.
Sule Pagoda is a 44 metre high Myanmar cafe in the centre of Yangon. According to tradition, it was constructed in front of the Shwedagon Pagoda during the Gautama Buddha period, making it over 2,600 years old.

From a vantage point like Sule Plaza I suggest to see the pagoda. Aka Scott Market was constructed in 1926 during the colonial age. The price is high as it has become one of the most important touristic attraction in Yangon. Felt like it's only made for visitors, so remember when you visit it.
