We went cause we had some spare time and the entrance was included in the combo ticket for other mandatory-to-visit temples. There is not much inside, some decaf reconstructed wooden buildings (original were all destructed by English bombing). Top sight is the Watch Tower where...More

It’s worth a visit as part of Mandalay’s history - but of course it’s a relatively modern reconstruction having been destroyed in 1945. Tip: it’s vast 2km x 2km outer walls - so ideally bike, scooter guide or taxi. Have to leave ID at eastern...More

Before entering the site as a foreigner you need to surrender your passport to the soldiers at the gate and pay 10,000 kyats each (about £7.50). Inside the walls are under military control as it is a large army base, and you will be restricted...More

Having circled the palace many times and enjoyed catch up with friends by the moat surrounding it I finally bit the bullet and went inside. It is interesting and beautiful but a bit strange. As part of the ticket to various sites it’s worth going...More

Nice partly rebuilt palace (bombed during ww2), but disappointing as not furnished as original, looks like an empty box.

This is the palace of the last king of Burma, before the British conquered Mandalay and eventually the whole country. The palace is located in the fort surrounded by a rectangular moat, with entrances on four sides. One can appreciate and admire the splendour of...More
