HD Afternoon tour of Mandalay & Mandalay Hill


| May 15, 2020

Mandalay Palace was home to the last two royal kings of Burma, including Burma's last king, King Thibaw, who lived here until 1885, when the British completed their take over of the country and he was sent to India and placed under house arrest. Sprawling south of Mandalay Hill, Mandalay Palace is a complex with rebuilt palaces in the centre of immense fort walls, measuring 3km long, 8 metres high and surrounded by a 70-metre-wide moat. Discover the Hall of Victory, or 'Glass Palace', Mye Nan Pyathat temple and the Nan Myint Saung watchtower, which can be climbed via a steep, spiral staircase for panoramic views of the city.
