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

Pleasant enough day trip into the countryside. Easily combined with other nearby sites and activities. We hired a driver to take us there from Mandalay. Nice little boat ride followed by a horse and cart tour around. Horses aren't in the best of condition. We had some fruit with us that we gave to our horse.

Inwa isn't as popular or well known as a tourist spot because it is shadowed by Mandalay, but it is one of the best places to see in the region. It is located just south of Mandalay, most people take a ferry across and then take a horse cart tour around Inwa. You can also go there by car, which... More

Innwa, also known as Ava was the old capital of Myanmar for more than 400 years. which is a record in the kingdom of Myanmar. It was destroyed by the Mon in the half of the 18th century.and Amarapura, close to it, became the new capital. Actually few remains of its richness is left, but you can spend a nice... More

Ava, now called Inwa, was a profound royal court in the 1300s in Myanmar. It played a significant and dramatic role in several key turning points in Myanmar's history. Hit hard by the 1838 earthquake and bearing the toll of time, the former royal seat still retains a majesty and inspires awe. The grounds are (fairly) easily navigable by car... More

It was a great experience of historical, mythological, social and cultural mix. Experience of riding boat, horsecart, tuktuk on one hand and experiencing the architectural beauties of pagodas makes it worth visiting the place. The ruins of those age old pagodas take us back to centuries in the time line. Traveling round the rural roads also gives us a idea... More

I assume you know the history: a former capital city, said by many to be the most important of them all, built on this location for defensive purposes, finally abandoned due to earthquakes. The reason to visit is two fold: 1. It is an idyllic, memorable experience. You arrive on the far bank, requiring a short river crossing by boat.... More

It is fun way to travel as you ride a boat to cross a river to reach Inwa. It's also fun to ride one of those horse cart and move around the ruins. But the ruins in this area isn't really that impressive. They're nice, but to take such a long detour from Mandalay just to see them, might not... More
