Landmark Tourist Spot
See a replica of the last royal palace of the monarchy of Burma at Mandalay Fort. Since the original, centuries-old citadel was destroyed during World War II, the government restored it to look authentic in the 1990s. Explore the site that was the nation's capital until the end of the 19th century, when it became popular as a tourist attraction with its historical and cultural significance. Admire the architecture on display, which captures the country's characteristic style. See Mandalay Fort and all Mandalay has to offer by arranging your trip with our Mandalay trip itinerary builder.

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.
