🇲🇲 M Y A N M A R- the golden country 🇲🇲 The kings of Bagan ordered the construction of hundreds of beautiful temples all over the country and when it comes to decoration I’m sure they came up with the motto ‘go big or go home’! The prestigious Shwedagon Pagoda (in the last photo, which was being renovated when I visited it) is gilded with hundreds of gold plates while the top is encrusted with 4531 diamonds! 💎
Not only is the scenery stunning there are endless Buddha temples to explore and to top it off the people are so kind and very resourceful! They even make their own sun cream made from a yellow paste from the bark of the Thanakha tree (you can spot it on the little girls cheeks in the third photo!).

We immersed ourselves with Yangon's culture. It's amazing how Myanmar people are able to preserve their traditions and religion rituals. It was definitely a great experience walking from one pagoda to the other while wearing Myanmar men's traditional wear, longyi. @travel_vlog__ #shwedagon #yangon #myanmar #southeastasia #asia #backpacking #summer #stayandwander #modernoutdoors #discoverglobe #pagoda #buddhist #buddhist temple #gold

Beautiful places provoke beautiful feelings 🇲🇲

The #Shwedagon #Pagoda is the most sacred #Buddhist pagoda in #Myanmar, as it is believed to contain relics of the four previous Buddhas of the present kalpa. These relics include the staff of Kakusandha, the water filter of Koṇāgamana, a piece of the robe of Kassapa, and eight strands of hair from the head of Gautama (Wikipedia). 😱
