Widely publicized as Golden Rock among the tourist crowd, the Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda is one of the most magical destinations in Myanmar. For the Buddhists, it is a must visit place after Shwedagon of Yangon. This mystical pagoda stands on a gold gilded boulder, precariously perched on the edge of the hill over 1,100 meters above sea level. Once at the pagoda, one can enjoy a spectacular view, which is particularly beautiful at sunrise or sunset. The whole site has a magical feeling.
