“Best View In Mandalay”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Go up at sunset for the best view in Mandalay. Well worth the time. Go a little early as it does get crowded.

“Drive up in the late afternoon for the sunset”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Although there is a "walkway" to the top of about 250 metre hill, most people nowadays "drive" up to the hill. Parking is fun however in the afternoon as the place is crowded to experience the sunset. The pagoda itself has the legendary Sutaungpyei Pagoda with statues and images of various mythological animals, snakes and also a statue of an ogress, offering her own breasts to the Buddha. However this is still a very religious place in the afternoon most of the people come here for a good sunset and have a panoramic view of Mandalay.

“Hoardes of people”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

It was FULL - all tour groups people place themselves 'reserving' their sundown spot and not moving to share with others. 500 kyt charge for camera (what?) bad traffic -big regret - next day went to another hill and had a wonderful sunset almost alone!

“Sunset-views but ...”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Lovely views - but it seems the Burmese have decided that tourism is a money-making machine and charge you to be allowed to use your camera. On the plus side - escalator available.

“Crowded at sunset but a must-see in Mandalay”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Mandalay hill is obviously very crowded at sunset as it is the best time to see the view of the city. We actually got there a little too late and soon after the sunset, the crowds were completely gone and the light on the city was still worth the experience. It got very quiet and peaceful as the souvenir sellers put away their stands.
