we hired a guide for aprox 100$ to show us Mingun and Mandalay Hill and royal palace in one day. Very much worth the money. Private boat to Mingun and nice private car the rest of the day.

Very interesting place with hundreds carved marble panels with sacred texts (what make it the Wold Biggest Book) each of them placed inside individual flawless white mini-pagodas surrounding a big golden pagoda. Nice spot for white predominant pictures. Some girls offer to paint your face with leaves-shape nacre cream for free (or donation), very friendly!

This is a very beautiful pagoda and the book is quite amazing to see. You should have a guide to explain the whole deal behind the “book” though. It makes it much better of a visit. The pagoda itself is a beautiful golden lustre.

We went with a guide and it was the best decision we made for our holiday, it was not busy and we had a peaceful interesting time there, worth to visit to see hundreds of tablets inscribed with Buddha teaching.
