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.
