Naypyidaw

Naypyidaw, officially spelled Nay Pyi Taw is the capital city of Myanmar (formerly known as Burma). Appreciate the collections at Defense Services Museum and The Gem Museum. Do some cultural sightseeing at The National Musuem and Thatta Thattaha Maha Bawdi Pagoda. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Uppatasanti Pagoda, stop by Myoma Market, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Nay Pyi Taw Zoological Gardens, and admire the local landmark of Naypyitaw Water FountainPark.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Naypyidaw sightseeing planner.

Sydney, Australia to Naypyidaw is an approximately 21-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3.5 hours traveling from Sydney to Naypyidaw. When traveling from Sydney in September, plan for somewhat warmer days and much hotter nights in Naypyidaw: temperatures range from 38°C by day to 38°C at night. On the 14th (Fri), you'll travel to Leya.

Mandalay

Built on a large scale by a king needing to impress and rebuild after defeat in battle, Mandalay deserves exploration.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Shwenandaw Monastery and Mandalay Palace. Step out of the city life by going to National Kandawgyi Botanical Gardens and Anisakan Falls. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mandalay: Amarapura (Nanmyin Watch Tower & Inn Wa) and Pyin Oo Lwin (Maymyo) (Maha Ant Htoo Kan Thar Pagoda & Hampshire Falls and Caves (Pwe Kauk)). The adventure continues: admire the striking features of Kuthodaw Pagoda & the World's Largest Book, take some stellar pictures from Mandalay Hill, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Maha Aung Mye Bon Zan Monastery, and pause for some photo ops at Mahamuni Image.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Mandalay fast, fun, and easy.
