Worth a look if you have the time

We made a trip here as part of our stay at Ngapali beach. It is noteworthy for a beautiful view over the river and across to Shwe Sandaw. There's also a quite big reclining Buddha to see.
There are three pagodas in the area: Nandaw, Sandaw and Andaw. Andaw is the lowest of the three, Nandaw has the big reclining Buddha but I think Sandaw is the prettiest of the three with the loveliest view across the river.

For a short view over Thandwe it is okay...

We wanted to see the Pagoda but after visiting Bagan this one was really boring. At least the view over Thandwe was not that bad. Better drive trough the city and watch out for the market....

Great view on the hill

Last year I visited Myanmar for the first time. On day one we visited Shwe Nandaw Pagoda HIll in Mandalay. What stunning views from between the golden eaves on the pagoda. Worth the taxi ride to visit this ancient capital.

Temple of the Rib
Dec 2015 • Couples
Shwe Nandaw Pagoda, also known as the "Temple of the Rib", is 10 minute drive from the market town of Thandwe on hilltop. There is a wonderful view across the valley floor. The temple itself is old, although as with most pagodas it its difficult to identify and age - but sufficent to say the building is very attractive and has a long history. It is also beautifully maintained with many smaller shrines, and it is of course beautifully maintained. I could not be certain as to which of these were in fact the "Temple of the Rib", but no matter it was a lovely calm chilled place.
In fact, it was a pleasure to walk (barefoot) around this temple, and to my way of thinking this quiet serene place, had a far more spiritually uplifting atmosphere than the vast Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon.
