Visit the reconstructed great audience hall, where you can admire its gold-painted ceiling and a replica of the throne. Continue on to see the king's bed chambers and private rooms. Here you can get a glimpse of the wealthy royal lifestyle, while also admiring a copy of the king’s couch.

    Not the original, but great to see that has been restored to give us an insight in the Burmese History and Architecture. Also has a small museum for you to view as well.  more »

    Very beautiful Palace. Several buildings on campus, all the varied and beautiful, built out of wood. Inside the palaces themselves do nothing particularly. The Central Museum, the main exhibits are stumps stumps of pillars of the old teak buildings found during excavations. Very nice walk it is for territory outside of the building looks majestically, a pleasant yellow golden color. Look great in photos.

    Simulated Palace built for a replacement of the old one that is defective. Inside are exhibits about the King in modern Burma, bayinnaung. In the city of Bago to 10,000 kyat for admission into place 4 places, including here, lining a bloody Palace chawemado pagoda. The reclining Buddha and the four directions for an early eye Choi nailed mom.

    Built in 1556, the palace was much bigger than this originally but had burnt down and was reconstructed as a place for tourism. Like most iconic buildings in Myanmar, most of the interior are in gold. It's a shame that I did not get to see the real arrangement of how the palace was like though, as the palace now is more like a museum that what it had been like in the past. The throne room was the only thing that remains, if I am not mistaken, and it was the closest that I could get to being a king myself. Like the other pagodas in Bago, you must have paid the foreign tourist fee before entering this place.

    Mildly interesting due to original teak pillars on site with some information panels. Why one has to take shoes off at a reproduced throne area is beyond me. It is neither a religious nor royal environment.

    The palace has been rebuilt entirely. The only original objects that remain are the wooden pillars and the foundations built with bricks. It's a nice place to spend some time with a big park surrounding the area. Go there if you want to escape the hectic city.

    Impressive building but it's not worth visit for high fees especially for the foreigners.

    Or the Royal audience hall. This is rebuilt of the old palace which got fired. It's beautiful indeed. From here you can see the bumble bee throne hall, not too far away. And from Bumble bee throne you can see Shwe Maw Daw Pagoda too.

Where to stay in Bago

Most of the accommodations in Bago line the busy main road, especially the budget-friendly options, so try to get a room in the back of these establishments to avoid noise from the ever-present traffic. If cost is not an issue, you can stay farther away from the road, in one of the more upmarket hotels.
