Mandalay Palace is located in Mandalay, Myanmar, the last royal palace of the last Burmese monarchy. The palace was constructed, between 1857 and 1859 as part of King Mindon's founding of the new royal capital city of Mandalay.

Just visit the Palace, but do not expect to much from it. I think it is worth the entrance fee and the walk inside. Just to see how the ancient King was living.

The buildings are empty and the army presence is intimidating.. Not worth the time it takes to see this site

It costs 10000 kyat for entrance. Although this grants entry to several other sites, the Palace itself is too empty to warrant such expense if that's the only place you're going to go. Few rooms contain anything of note - the highlight was the views...More

My wife and I enjoyed this royal palace, however many rooms are not visible and nothing super exceptional to see...lovely view from the tour.

Even this palace was rebuilt from the original which is already destroyed on the war. But you still can see how nice it is.

I'd say bring your walking shoes but no shoes allowed. Entry fee 10,000 Kyat but that can be used at other sites as well

Foreigners must enter from the West entrance and leave their passport at the gate. You walk for 10 minutes down a line street and arrive at the palace. The building are nice to see but are empty. The viewing tower is probably the coolest part...More

A pretty poor job of rebuilding the ancient palace. From a distance it looks great but when you get closer it isa bit ramshackle concrete and timber with corrugated steel roofing. Tower is worth climbing up to see the view.
