Went there on the last stretch of a field trip. We were quite tired and it’s a big place. The place is well restored/maintained but would benefit from more explanations. Maybe an Audio-guide...

Knowing that this is replica takes away some of the interest. The grounds and buildings are only fitted with a few signs so you also don't really know the significance of what you are looking at. The museum located within is so-so. If you have...More

A decent one hour is required to fully explore the palace. Look out for the watch tower that offers a very scenic panoramic view of the palace and Mandalay city, from atop.

The original palace of the 3rd Myanmar kingdom from 19c built by king Mindon was destroyed during the WWII. There was almost nothing left but the majestic Golden Palace teak wood monastery which was relocated after, and today is one of city's main attractions. However,...More

The palace, fully walled and moated, is exquisite. It has been beautifully renovated and was the highlight of our time in Mandalay.

This is a Palace with many buildings on a large footprint built by King Mindon. A must have is someone to explain it all. There is an original watchtower like a helter skelter that should not be missed to see a plan of the Palace....More
