It was hot when we were there, so couldn't walk close to this Buddha. But from a far, it is massively amazing. Worth the Bago trip. Do it from Yangon, closest to it.

This BIG statue is not aesthetially interesting or beautiful. It's actually rather ugly and poorly done. Most people think its not as old as claimed. You will know why if you go (but it's not worth going out of your way to visit)
