In the local language it is called Kyaiktiyo but we all know it as Golden Rock. It is one of those unique places that make you go wow! This massive granite rock is said to be glued in place by a single strand of Buddha’s hair. The rock is covered in gold leaf that dazzles throughout the day. It’s a long drive for a day trip so we would recommend combining with Hpa An. (epgtravel, Dec 2018)
