Riding a horse drawn buggy might sound exciting, sadly no the ground was muddy and the poor horses struggled to get through it. After the short boat trip across the river we arrived to find a line up of buggies, the ground was soggy from all the rain. Mud about 6 inches deep. Everything had a fee the boat the... More

Apart from temples and structures, Inwa is more of its ancient atmosphere. Red-earth path, a pony cart drawn a two person carriage at the back on the track under the lushy and shady high trees, it a truly a charm of different to elsewhere in Mandalay, Better than all others.

We did the usual and hired the pony cart to see the touristy sites which we all enjoyed. I had the wife & kids, but I thought how much more wonderful it would be to take a day and go round by motorcycle and see the sites off the beaten track. There are so many of them to be explored... More

It was a really nice place to visit, lots of ruins and historical places to see. One thing I didn't like about was we (foreigners) had to rent a horse cart to go around the city or we had to walk. As we had only 2 hours, we got no choice, it cost 8000 kyat per trip, round the city.

I am surprised by the number of reviewers griping about the costs etc. We can of course stay at home and watch TV. Innwa is the ancient imperial capital of Burma for almost 360 years. So to save USD20 some have decided not to see it fully. The place is incredible, an ancient kingdom, an abandoned city. I cannot imagine... More

When going onto a tour with a taxi only they normally bring you to Inwa island. You need to pay the boat (Kyt 1000 per person and the horse carriage. Plus entrance fee for the monasteries (kyt 10'000 but combo ticket). The palace tower is nice but you can't climb up to enjoy the view. And there are plenty of... More

Ok, I love ruins, and it's the first time I've had to cross a river and ride in a horse drawn cart to see some. I was hooked, and I'd go again. There are two monasteries and a watch tower from the mid 1800s. The monasteries were more impressive than I expected. There were three different ruins of interest along... More

This is a place that was developed in the early 19th century but still the structures seem like they could be used again for a monastery. You reach here by boats of which there is a ferry service every 30 minutes and then there are horse carts to take you around the old structures of which there are 4 places... More

Arrived to Innwa full of excitement with a little boat but our excitement went away quickly... On entrance to the island, all was immediately guided to horse carriages directly who wanted charge like $20 for a short travel of looking around. As we were already disappointed with all the hidden entrance/camera/territory/boat/foreigner fees coming on top of the tour everywhere -... More
