Early in the morning, each group of clergy in yellow or brown coat walks through the streets for begging. In the afternoon, the nuns in pink coats also go in bustling group.

Shwedagon Pagoda is the largest and most famous in Yangon with lion and giant Naga dragon. Coming to the pagoda seems touching the Buddhist world. Nearly 1000 Buddha statues, large and small with beautiful face are standing in this pagoda. Many people take turns to bathe the Buddha to pray for peace for their family and themselves.

Along with Shwedagon Pagoda is Kanbawzathardi Palace and Museum in Bago. This is a museum and the royal palace from the 16th century. Desolate ruins, remaining the ancient brick wall, the old foundation are trying to prove the flourishing past. Bago also has a massive Buddhist sanctuary where hold the important congresses.
