Where is Monywa Located?
Monywa is not long on the map of tourist trips, although this quaint town has to offer, stunning sights. While tourists seem almost out of place in the cityscape, every visitor can expect not only the second largest Buddha Statue in the world, but also an authentic and lively everyday life.
Colorful markets with delicious exotic fruits, many food stalls and a vibrant nightlife make for an unforgettable stay. Monywa is also considered one of the most important religious sites in Myanmar with its countless Buddha statues.
What Country is Monywa in?
With 100,000 inhabitants, Monywa is already a slightly larger city and is located 136 kilometers away in the northwest of Mandalay. Due to its strategic location on the Chindwin River, the city is considered an important trading centre for tropical goods such as oranges, palm sugar or cotton. Despite the village atmosphere, Monywa is considered the main artery into the northern part of Myanmar. Even if the infrastructure within the city is expandable, this explains the high traffic volume. In contrast to many other East Asian cities, however, the streets are very wide. Horse-drawn carriages and domestic pigs use the public roads as well as intercity buses and the many Tucktucks, which are recommended here as the main means of Transport for tourists. Since visitors have only been admitted to Monywa since 1990, tourism is still in the starting blocks. A stay therefore requires a little flexibility and adventurous spirit, but this will pay off in view of the loving and hospitable culture of the inhabitants.
