Welcome to Monywa Hotel & Information
About 136 km to the west of Mandalay is Monywa, the commercial center of the northwest. Monywa is located on the eastern bank of Chindwin river. Bodhi-ta-taung Pagoda (one thousand Bo trees), Thanbokde Pagoda, Po-win taung Hills and Kyaukka village are some of the interesting places to visit.
Monywa is a major trade center for agricultural produce from the surrounding Chindwin Valley, especially beans, orange pulses and jiggery (palm sugar). In addition, the local industry includes mills for the production of cotton, flour, noodles, and edible oils. Monywa's rough cotton blankets are famous throughout Myanmar.
