Why this activity

  • Join thousands of locals who assemble every evening around the Shwedagon pagoda to present their respects to Buddha
  • The Shwedagon Pagoda is a place where the Burmese meet family memebers to talk, eat, go for a walk and pray
  • Find a quiet spot to sit and soak up this magical atmosphere as the sun dips below the horizon and the colours change on the golden temple
  • Pay your respects by lighting candles and incense sticks
