Mandalay

Built on a large scale by a king needing to impress and rebuild after defeat in battle, Mandalay deserves exploration.
Get a sense of the local culture at Sanda Muni Paya and Maha Aung Mye Bon Zan Monastery. Popular historic sites such as Maha Myat Muni Pagoda- Mahamuni Buddha Temple and Pahtodawgyi Pagoda are in your itinerary.
