#2 of 56 in Things to do in Mandalay
Northeast of the city center rises Mandalay Hill, a haven of monasteries and pagodas that remains one of prominent pilgrimage sites for Burmese Buddhists. Reaching an elevation of 224 m (735 ft), the hill's summit offers panoramic views that make the entire trip worthwhile. You can reach the top by taking one of four covered stairways, or a one-way road leading to an elevator. Put Mandalay Hill and other Mandalay attractions into our Mandalay family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

    After rent the bike and be half an hour driving to reach the Hill, they made us pay for access with the bike, you must then return to pay to park it up. In addition once at the top, if you're a tourist you must pay again for access. Once up it is true that the views are very beautiful, but I think that if you're just in time, not worth the go. It is much more interesting to visit Mingun.

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.
