The huge city walls (which together with the graves is the only surviving part bombings) contains lots of areas in addition to strong to deny access for military. To enter more than present the cumulative ticket to Mandalay must register at a check point showing documents (just that one just for the Group)

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.
