How to go

This place is a little bit out of the center of Yangon.

The address is :

Phayagone Su Taung Pyae Monastery
Kyauk Ye Dwin Village
Thanlyin Township Yangon

It is close to a very well known pagoda that is also interesting to visit if you have the time. Every taxi driver should know it. If the first one you ask doesn't know, just ask another one... 

The name of this pagoda is:
Kyaik-Khauk Pagoda in Thanlyin (it is probably mentioned in your  Lonely Planet)

The cost of the fare should be around 7'000.- Kyat (8.5 dollars) and you can discuss the price of the return trip for a little bit less then 14'000 kyats. If you ask him, the driver will wait one hour for you without any problem.
