Innwa has become a big tourist trap. Yes there are some beautiful buildings, but there are more in Myanmar. The people there make it an unpleasant trip.
First of all; I did not do the horse cart. It was a hot day, the horses stood...More
This is an interesting village to visit for 2 hours. We booked a private taxi via Mandalay Taxi Cab Service (available at TripAdvisor) as recommended by a friend who has used the service for a day tour including Innwa. We reached the lakeside for boat...More
I am surprised to read so many good reviews about this place. Putting history aside for a moment, this place is not worth a single Kyat. It was part of our daily tour around Mandalay. Had we known more about it, we would've most likely...More
The old town of the Innwa should visit to 10places - Kyaunglain; Myint Moe Taung; Duddnan Aung; Dragon Pagoda; Wingaba; Bagaya; SinGying army; Lawkatharaphu; yadanasimi; Mhawsin, are the best place to take a photo.
Considering that this was the long-time imperial capital known as Ava, there is precious little left to see of it. There is the colonial-era fort which overlooks the Irrawaddy, with a few walls and a couple of show cannons, but that's it. Not much remains...More
We visited Innwa as part of a more general tour which allowed us to see several attractions around Mandalay.
To visit Innwa we made a tour with a horse-cart of about 2-3 hours so to see the most important sites in Innwa.
The area is...More
Fairly forgettable sights in Inwa and probably not worthwhile the 2-3hrs trip from central Mandalay.
As other reviewers have pointed out you need to take a ferry across to Inwa (5mins 1500kyats return p/p) followed by horse and cart/carriage journey (10000kyats) around 4 major sights....More
I can not say that it is a visit I like it. The temples do not contribute much in comparison of others that is seen in Burma. Personally on the horse car ride to suffer much looking as the horse they gave him with a...More
Some people do cycle it, c.22km. Easy to get a taxi to drive you to the jetty (c.30min). The boat takes 2minutes to cross then you have 1-2 hours going around on a horse and cart (10000kyat for the horse and cart). There are... More
Some people do cycle it, c.22km. Easy to get a taxi to drive you to the jetty (c.30min). The boat takes 2minutes to cross then you have 1-2 hours going around on a horse and cart (10000kyat for the horse and cart). There are lots of taxi drivers, the ferry just shuttles back and forth, you should be waiting more than 5min if you've just missed one, there are c.200 horse and carts on the island, mostly queued up at the landing point waiting to take you on your trip!
