Myanmar: Shwedagon Pagoda at Night
Shwedagon Pagoda is by far the number one attraction at daytime but at night it’s beyond spectacular. The golden pagoda itself and the dozens of smaller temples and Buddha statues are all illuminated wth lights, thousands of people come in the cooler evening hours to worship and socialize. Candles burning, kids smiling, and almost everybody kneeling in front of sparkling Buddhas. It’s the sightseeing and people watching at its best! (No shoes or socks allowed at any religious sites in Myanmar, so enjoy turning your soles to pitch black color every time you visit).
