The most comfortable train to book is Train #4 departing at 17:00 because it has upper class sleeper seats and a restaurant. The other overnight through train, Train #6, is newer but has no sleeper car.
Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon is the most important Buddhist Temple in Myanmar. The 99 metre tall Shwedagon Pagoda, also known as the Great Dragon Pagoda, houses a number of important religious relics.
The origins of Shwedagon Pagoda are a source debate amongst historians and archaeologists. The prevailing theory at present is that Shwedagon Pagoda was built sometime during a period from the 6th to 10th Centuries BC, potentially making Shwedagon Pagoda the oldest remaining Buddhist stupa in the world. There are four entrances leading up to the Pagoda itself, which is constructed largely from brick many of which are covered in gold.
