  • Simple presentation of gold leaf making but no gift shop. Just one room. Need a guide to explain the various tools.
  • Nice place to visit. Very expensive but understandable.
  • Traditional gold leaf making. Excellent gold made souvenirs
  • Yes, a bit of a tourist trap that lives of showing you the process of making gold leaves, then selling you other expensive gifts and items. But, still, you have to go, it's really fun to watch.
  • Authentic experience but don't buy anything there. Prices are way overpriced! You can learn a lot about the process though.

Where to stay in Mandalay

Look at the area to the southwest of the royal palace for the main choice of accommodations in Mandalay. Some cushier options sit on the main thoroughfares, offering rooms with balconies overlooking the core architectural and historic sights. A number of basic hotels lie close to the main train station, while budget-friendly guesthouses concentrate in the area around 25th Street. Farther to the west, some hotels have views of the river, while to the east lie lodgings with convenient proximity to major regional highways.
