Mandalay Hill, Mandalay Reviews - Write a Review

  • Nice hill and temple, excellent views across the city and to the river. Quite busy during weekends and at sunset/sunrise. Lots of salesman in the temple, and sometimes they seem to charge foreigners $1 to enter, but it seems to depend on their mood...

  • At the top of the Mountain , there is a Buddha image in Temple. You can see the beauty of Mandalay town's view in nature around the hill. and you can rent scope to look zoom in . Also nice place to take photo with nature background.

  • From memory, as we were told at the entrance, it is about 1700 steps to the top but this made the climb all the more worthwhile! The view is spectacular right across Mandalay. The cost of entry was tiny although they could have been a little more transparent about it. There are benches at intervals for those that need a rest on the way up and drinks vendors selling water and other drinks. There are other interesting temples to see in the vicinity of Mandalay Hill after you've walked back down. If you want to learn about the country you're visiting, you have to make the effort! We recommend it.

  • It s a nice ride by bicycle to the top. The penultimate platform, a pagoda is very nice and has good views. The best view is one step higher and cost 1000 k extra for foreigners. Toilet 200 k if needed :) Too bad the sun goes down on the side of the huge golf resort which is not so nice really. Other side are beautiful. The trip to the top is worth it more than the view

  • 360 views. Very nice view of the city, just one of the things you should do in Mandalay. Our driver brought us there just before sunset and it was pretty.
