A very cozy reasonably priced family run guest house, in an ideal location. Oh and exceptional food!
Ma Ma Guest House is really popular for many good reasons. I love this place!
Mandalay is a city and former royal capital in northern Myanmar (formerly Burma) on the Irrawaddy River. In its center is the restored Mandalay Palace from the Konbaung Dynasty, surrounded by a moat. Mandalay Hill provides views of the city from its summit, which is reached by covered stairway. At its foot, the Kuthodaw Pagoda houses hundreds of Buddhist-scripture-inscribed marble slabs. But there are numerous interesting things to do.....check out the longest teak bridge in the world, just 25 minutes drive from Ma Ma Guest House.
Close to many wonderful historical sites in Mandalay City such as Royal Palace, Mandalay Hill and not forgetting the famous Buddhist temples, Mahamuni Pagoda, Golden Palace Monastery (Shwenandaw Kyaung) and Kuthodaw Pagoda.
Mandalay is the second largest city in Burma, after Yangon, and a former capital of Myanmar. The city is the economic and religious hub of upper Myanmar and is centred around the Royal Palace. There are many ways to get to Mandalay, from international flights, to domestics flights from Yangon and other cities, as well as by train, bus and even by boat from the ancient city of Bagan...
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.
