Trip Planner : Asia / Myanmar / Sagaing Region / Mingun
The riverside town of Mingun has a set of impressive historical structures that highlight the immense power and egocentricity of the old kings who once ruled the country. An unfinished stupa, intended to be three times as tall, represents the chief attraction of Mingun, with its earthquake-battered appearance evoking the broken dreams of the one who ordered it built, King Bodawpaya, the ruler who wished to have the biggest pagoda in the world. Just an hour away from Mandalay by boat, Mingun stands as a playground of architecture and power. Make your own Mingun vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Myanmar itinerary planner.

Our expert advice on where to stay in Mingun
Mingun itself has no accommodations, although the city of Mandalay lies just an hour's boat ride to the south along the Ayeyarwady River. A very popular excursion for visitors to Mandalay, boats run from the jetty each morning bound for Mingun. Mandalay's accommodations are a varied bunch, with some particularly upmarket and refined options seated alongside altogether more backpacker-friendly fare, such as hostels and simple guesthouses.
