Mandalay Hill, Mandalay Reviews

  • Beautiful place, so peaceful and calming! Great views! Attention: fee for foreign tourists, but not much.

  • Green environment, fresh air.... Literally, one of the best places to have a chilling sunset time 🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲🇲

  • This is a pagoda and a temple situated on top of a hill at Mandalay. Very beautiful views . You can go up to the entrance by vehicle (ample parking available) and climb up to pagoda using elevator (very common in similar pagodas in Myanmar) on the way down you can use stairs so that you can buy a lot of souvenirs. Don't forgot to bargain on price if you are a foreigner (price may 3-4 times higher for a foreigner)

  • We were lucky enough to arrive in the city and to be transported right away in this amazing temple. The sunset light was the best thing and all the colours of the walls and decorations irradiated brightness and sparkles. The monks were super nice, they came talking to us (to practice their English as we later discovered), they were curious and kind. Amazing experience :-)

  • 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...
