  • Very nice and very peaceful monastery with the central structure entirely made of wood on stilts, more than 100 years old. Entrance is free but you can leave an offer for the renovation of the building. The best time to visit is early morning or before sunset as it becomes very hot there after 11am like in other places in Mandalay.
  • Wooden architecture in this place is simply amazing. Overall a nice place to go.
  • Beautiful wooden architecture with wonderfully intricate wood carvings and decorations. Interesting history.

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.
