Built on a large scale by a king needing to impress and rebuild after defeat in battle, Mandalay deserves exploration.
Get out of town with these interesting Mandalay side-trips: National Kandawgyi Botanical Gardens (in Pyin Oo Lwin (Maymyo)) and Hsinbyume Pagoda (in Mingun). There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Golden Palace Monastery (Shwenandaw Kyaung), see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, admire the striking features of Kuthodaw Pagoda & the World's Largest Book, and take some stellar pictures from Mandalay Hill.
