Visit Mingun Bell to hear the ring of one of the world's largest bells. Cast in 1808, it held the record as the world's largest bell several times, before being eclipsed by one from China in 2010. The 6 m (20 ft) high, 90-ton bronze object features inscriptions describing its weight on the outside. This bell doesn't have a clapper; instead, it is rung by striking its outer edge. Give it a good hit, striking the bell is permitted. Arrange to visit Mingun Bell and other attractions in Mingun using our Mingun travel itinerary planner.

Where to stay in Mingun
Mingun itself has no accommodations, although the city of Mandalay lies just an hour's boat ride to the south along the Ayeyarwady River. A very popular excursion for visitors to Mandalay, boats run from the jetty each morning bound for Mingun. Mandalay's accommodations are a varied bunch, with some particularly upmarket and refined options seated alongside altogether more backpacker-friendly fare, such as hostels and simple guesthouses.
