If you are ready to go to Mandalay, the journey would not be complete without visiting Mingun, one of the four ancient capitals that sit outside of Mandalay, located several kilometers up the Ayeyarwady River. The breathtaking temples, country lanes and a delightful boat trip will keep you in another peaceful land of Myanmar. Definitely, it is a perfect destination for those who want to get away from the city life.

A tour in Mingun will refresh you with the impressive trio of attractions: Hsinbyume Pagoda, Mingun Bell and Mingun Pagoda. White in color, Hsinbyume Pagoda distinguishes itself from the other pagodas in Myanmar for its seven terraces shaped like waves, which represent the seven mountain ranges surrounding the Mount Meru. It's said that Mingun Bell is one of the largest ringing bell in the world weighing 55,555 viss (90 tonnes), and you can stand under the bell to feel what a big size it is. Besides, the Mingun Pagoda, an unfinished stupa, is known as the largest pile of bricks in the world.
