(4/5 based on 380+ reviews for 5 attractions)
Things to do: nature, sightseeing, religious sites
Venture into the vibrant agricultural streets of Monywa, a city nestled on the banks of the Chindwin River in Northern Myanmar. A major trade center for beans, palm sugar, and orange pulses, the city enjoys a diverse selection of lively markets and serves as a good stop for those wanting to shop among the locals. Known for some of the largest depictions of Buddha in the world, the city attracts visitors to sites like brightly colored pagodas, monasteries, and monuments—focal points on any Monywa itinerary. Most of the city's major sightseeing spots can be reached on foot, although you might want to arrange transport to visit the city's extensive cave system, which sits a little further down river.

Where to stay

Monywa offers a small but reasonable selection of accommodation options, all providing a comfortable night's sleep. The city sees a relatively small number of international visitors, but a handful of lodgings serve all of the city's guests, ranging from budget guesthouses to three-star modern hotels. Look toward the river and central General Aung San Road for most hotels, with some offering bike rental, outdoor swimming pools, and free Wi-Fi. Your most economical choices lie back toward the bus station, although these prove less convenient when you start to plan your Monywa sightseeing.
