  • First of all, I noticed a stunningly inaccurate review that says that the pagoda be located on the Hill of Mandalay, iinvece is at the bottom, on the 24 street. But the best part comes with the published photos with that review relating to Umin Thounzeh, located on the Hill of Sagaing to more than 10 Km away! That said, the Shwekyimyint Paya, dating back to 1167, notable is not a must, a Buddha statue with Golden garb and dotted with gemstones.

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.
