Mrauk-U, Myanmar

(4.7/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
The capital of a former kingdom of the same name, Mrauk-U still shows signs of its past prosperity. During the kingdom’s peak--between the 15th and 18th centuries--a number of administrative and religious buildings sprouted up in the area. See the stone-brick temples and sanctuaries around the palace, and ask a local to recount to you the area's most famous legend. According to the tale, the first prince of the kingdom was born from an egg laid by a female monkey. Mrauk-U is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Mrauk U Edition.

  • Cosy atmosphere at this low price resort. The WiFi is not that good and we had a receptionist with a bad attitude receiving us at the first day. Everything else has been OK.
  • Will be difficult finding anything cheaper in Mrauk U. You get the basics here with a bit more. Free breakfast; hot water, towels, water. Interior is very dated and a bit dirty. Dim lighting and terrible Wi-Fi. Location is decent and staff are helpful. Lots of bugs everywhere in Mrauk U and same at this hotel. They're still building new units here and seems the workers are housed in some of the existing rooms so expect to hear construction noise during the day and loud music at night. I recommend checking out Prince Hotel.
