Sule Pagoda : Yangon Burma

During my first night in Burma, I landed in Yangon and made my way to the hotel in China Town, put down my stuff and went out for a first walk in the way. The first ‘attraction’ I visited in Yangon a few minutes walk away from my hotel was the night lit Sule Pagoda, a 44 meters tall Pagoda at the southern part of town. Allegedly, it dates back to the time of Buddha 2500 years ago, but was later ‘renovated’ in the 15th century to resemble more what it looks like in present days. Although it was dark, the pagoda and temple area were open for visitors, and nearby were very lively night markets where I got some amazingly cheap and delicious street food and watched the locals live their lives. Must have spent 3 hours just roaming around and observing the night madness of Yangon, it was a good first intro to the life in Burma.
