Tips for you

  • The complex is in the middle of the enclosed enclave, so it is nice to take a bike there.
  • The fort is in the town centre and takes up a vast area surrounded by a moat.

If you start walking from one corner to another along the moat, you will appreciate just how massive the complex is (I believe its 2km by 2km) and how difficult it must have been to build without modern day heavy equipment. Just be aware that if you want to go inside to see the Mandalay Palace, you will need to enter through the East Gate and walk all the way back to the middle of the fort (probably 1km). You can also get a decent view of the Fort from the top of Mandalay Hill - if its not too hazy or dusty.
