  • With this name refers to the walls and everything inside, including the Royal Palace located in the most central part of the perimeter. The walls of about 1.5 Km on each side, although restored, represents the only partially survived the bombing) of World War II. Inside there are several military areas with no access. The main entrance is necessary to stop the car and show your ticket and documents at the check point. Inside, apart from the complex rebuilt the Royal Palace, there is the original Tomb of King Mindon and an interesting monument with statues of the main Burmese Kings and some interesting bilingual explanations on their realm.

  • A very stylish imperial palace, the buildings are very new, we go in the evening when there are many locals to enter. We'll check the tickets here and remember to keep the stub.

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.
