Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda, of course. The "Golden Rock" sits at the edge of the vertical ridge and protrudes out in a precarious position. It is as though the rock is about to roll off from the cliff anytime.
For the devout Buddhist, Kyaikhtiyo is a pilgrimage site and a holy place. For tourists and other visitors, this is a Wonder of the World not to be missed!
At present time, there are only a handful of standard hotels around Kyaikhtiyo. Some of the hotels such as Mountain Top Hotel, Golden Rock Hotel and Kyaikhtiyo Hotel are located closer to the (Golden Rock) Kyaikhtiyo Pagoda at the top of the mountain, and those are ideal for sightseeing and enjoying the wonderful sunrise and sunset at Kyaikhtiyo. There is a walking path going all the way to the top. Vehicles go up only to the level of Mountain Top Hotel.
