Good experience, we liked the pagoda, trip with special boat and the market, that was near pagoda. We had seen enough pagodas, so we liked the trip with the boat most.

This place for me already 2 times. It's not so far from Yangon and you can see pagoda in the river and a lot of fish around there. You can go there by boat only 5,000 MMK for round trip.
