Travel to Burma / Myanmar: Moulmein 4: Ridge
The ridge that parallels the waterfront provides great views of the city and is the site of a whole string of Buddhist institutions.
From a point on the ridge near the pagoda made famous by Kipling, there's a good view of the city's green core. In the distance, an island at the mouth of the Salween.
From the same point, a view of the city's prison, built by the utilitarian British.
Turning 180 degrees: the Kyaikthanian Pagoda, Moulmein's tallest and likely the one Kipling had in mind while writing "Mandalay."
At the base of the pagoda.
