Culture tour and city tour around Mandalay.

Mandalay is well known as a cultural city of Myanmar since it was the last kingdom capital. It was the capital from 1859 to 1885 before British colonized the country. Therefore a lot of handicraft workshops and cultural buildings (pagodas and monasteries) are still remaining as a memory of the last capital city.

Moreover, the people from Mandalay area are very friendly and polite and very warm welcome to visitors. Therefore, you could wander around the city not only for the attraction places, and also you could see the ways of life of local people. On the other hand, Mandalay is the main place where Buddhist Monks come and study Buddhist literature from different parts of the country. Therefore, you should join this tour to bring the amazing memory back to your home.


At 8:30 AM, driver and I will pick you up from the hotel. First, visit Mahamuni Pagoda (land mark of Mandalay). You could explore stone carving, wood carving and other handicraft workshops around Mahamuni Pagoda.
Next, will keep moving to Jade Market and Shwe Inn Bin Monastery.
Have your lunch at local restaurant. Then, continue to Royal Palace, the last kingdom of Myanmar dynasty.
Afterward, continue to Royal Palace Monastery (Shwenadaw Monastery), Atumashi Monastery and Kuthodaw Pagoda (the world biggest book). Finally, you will be transferred to Mandalay Hill to see view point of Mandalay city and to enjoy the sunset. Then back to your hotel.
