Pagoda in the center of Myanmar

A medium range pagoda in the center of Yangon just besides the Maha Bandula Park. Easy to approach and near the colonial district of Yangon. Worth to visit if you have spare time.

I would say this is worth a visit as a starting point for exploring other pagodas. It's small and easy to get to. There is not much in the way of tourist information, so it may be best with a guide. I enjoyed the beauty and ease of access.

Sule pagoda is an okay way to pass an hour in Yangon, but it absolutely pales in comparison to Shwegadon. Sule feels much more like a tourist trap and you will encounter touts trying to "show you around" before asking for a sizable donation for a questionable charity. Exercise your "no" muscles before a visit.

We arrived at 4.30pm and there was hardly anyone there. We met an x monk who is now around the pagoda explaining everything in detail which we thought was so informative. He did in the end show us photos of an orphanage he was helping out and asked for a donation which I gladly gave as he was so good.... More

Impressive pagoda in downtown Yangon, entrance fee applies which is expected but also don't be fooled by taking flowers handed to you as you walk in, they are not free. Also be wary of people walking around explaining culture, what started off nice, turned into "is that all you're willing to donate?" and soured the taste of the place.

Saw the Shweddegon first, and the Sule seemed small and tired in comparison. I would skip unless staying just nearby.

Very pushy flower sellers at the entry give the imagination that admission fee is included with their stuffs. The real admission fee will be charged after climbing up the stairs. When leaving they will charge you extra money for take care of your shoes. So take my advice and ignore this scammers, buy your ticket at the ticket counter upstairs... More

If in Yangon one of two pagodas must visit. Shwedagon is the other. Very different style and intriguing. Crowded but worth it. Museum pieces difficult to view because of multiple barriers.

Good just to walk around the outside of this one with rather old looking stall shops against its walls.
