Mandalay

Situated on the banks of the legendary Ayeyarwady River, Mandalay, the last royal capital of the Burmese Kingdom, is today a bustling city.

Neighbouring the mountain regions of the Shan and Kachin people, the city acts as a gateway to Northern Myanmar.

The city itself is home to many different forms of crafts as well as the world’s largest book found at the Kuthodaw Pagoda. With its streets based on a grid system, getting around downtown Mandalay and its markets, restaurants and temples can be easily done on foot however if you’re looking to go a little further you’ll need to get a taxi.

Day trips to the surrounding ancient royal capitals of Ava, Amarapura, Mingun and Sagaing, make this one of Myanmar’s most historical and culturally rich regions.

Rudyard Kipling wrote of ‘Mandalay’ in his evocative poem – a city whose charms are yet still to be discovered by many.
