Right in the centre of Mandalay, just a stone throw away from the famous Mandalay Palace, you'll find Bagan King Hotel. A true boutique hotel with just 29 rooms, it is a great place to kick back and relax after a day of exploring Mandalay. Definitely worth mentioning is the beautiful views from the restaurant right at the top Bagan King Hotel. Perfect for watching sunsets.
Check out some of the beautifully adorned puppets in the rooftop restaurant. Just one of the many ways Bagan King brings to life Myanmar's rich heritage.

The ideal time to visit Myanmar is during the dry season, between October and May. At this time of year the whole country is accessible, the temples shimmer and the beaches are open; making travel varied and rewarding. But Myanmar has lots to offer all year round.
