Well it’s a pagoda, which there are a lot of, but it’s definitly worth checking out if you have the time! You should get a guide to tell you a little bit of history or else it will just be like any other pagoda you...More
Located in downtown Yangon. Watch out for traffic, this is not California. Well maintained, beautiful functioned Buddhist temple. No one bothered me selling or begging. A short walk from major hotels, The Pullen, Excelsior etc.
In central location in Yangon. A smaller but worth seeing pagoda. I enjoyed walking around the different areas of Yangon. There are so many shops with so much interesting stuff to look at after seeing the pagoda.

Yes, Chinatown is west of the Sule Pagoda, Be sure to see Mahabandoola Garden with the Independence Monument right by the pagoda. Not too far a walk is the Musmeah Yeshua Synagogue and you are not too far from the Strand Hotel. But as the others have mentioned, it really depends on how much you like to walk in the heat. I say do it as you will go through the various neighborhoods and get more of a feel for the city.
