Shwedagon & other Pagodas Tour in Yangon

On my second day in Yangon, Myanmar , I spent less. Most of my expenses went to transportation since I had to travel from Yangon to another impressive place in Myanmar, Bagan. They say that the main pagoda in downtown Yangon is so huge so I spared the first half of my day visiting the Shwedagon Pagoda. In the afternoon, I traveled to the ancient city of Bagan, known as well for its thousands of old temples being the capital of the country’s ancient kingdom.
